What is physiotherapy?
The aim of Physiotherapy is to restore normal range of movement, increase strength and reduce pain. We treat new or long standing injuries including everything from the smallest niggles to pains caused by illness and disease. We use a combination of techniques to ensure that every aspect of your care is addressed.
Is physiotherapy right for me?
If you are medically well and you are not under-going invasive treatments then, yes! Physiotherapy can be an effective treatment for everything from serious injuries to headaches. If you are unsure or have any questions, please speak with us to discuss your options.
Will my insurance provider cover the cost?
We work with most insurance providers. Speak with us to see if we work with your insurer.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
If applicable, bring a list of your medications and medical history. Also wear or bring appropriate, comfortable, loose clothing so we’re able to easily access the area to treat you effectively.
Is treatment painful?
We are trying to make changes to your body, similar to a work out in the gym. Therefore, sometimes you may experience some discomfort for up to 24-48 hours afterwards. We will only ever do a technique with your consent and we will ask you to give us feedback as to your comfort levels as we progress through your treatment.

What happens in the first appointment?
Your first appointment lasts 45 minutes.
During your assessment you’ll be asked a range of questions about your general health and about your specific complaint. You’ll then undergo a series of physical checks and treatments.
We will look at posture and the flexibility and strength of the muscles in that area. We will feel for any stiffness or muscle spasm. We may also perform relevant special tests to check your ligaments, cartilage and tendons.
What happens in the follow up appointments?
Your return appointment lasts 30 minutes.
At every appointment you will be reassessed to ensure you are receiving the most effective treatment possible.
Depending on your symptoms you will likely receive hands on treatment during your appointment and be given a bespoke home exercise programme to make your recovery as quick as possible.
