Frequently Asked Questions
What does a Physiotherapy treatment involve?
An initial consultation involves our Chartered Physiotherapist asking a series of questions to learn about your problem. Based on these findings, our Physiotherapist will then ask you to perform certain movements to further diagnose the source and cause of your problem. During the initial assessment there is also time for some hands-on treatment to relieve your pain. You will also be prescribed some home exercises and given advice on how you can help speed up your recovery.

How many sessions will I need?
