How does Physiotherapy work?

The aim of physiotherapy is to restore motion and function to bones, joints and tissues in your body. It’s a science-based discipline that provides relief and rehabilitation for many different conditions and complaints, from soreness or pain to injury, disability and post-surgery recovery.

Physiotherapy comes in several different forms. These include manual therapy (where we use our hands to encourage movement and reduce stiffness), tailored exercise plans, and education (such as correct lifting techniques and how to improve your posture). The key thing about physiotherapy is that it’s personal to you as an individual. Every person’s body is different, so the treatment will be tailored to your own needs and goals.

Physiotherapy FAQs

Do I need a GP referral before I can see you?

No. You don’t need to be referred to us in order to make an appointment. While it’s always helpful to have accompanying notes or a diagnosis from a GP or consultant, we don’t need to have them before we see you or start your treatment. You can simply walk in, book an appointment with our clinicians, and they will assess, diagnose and treat you.

Can I cancel an appointment?

If you need to ask change or cancel an appointment, we ask that you contact us at least 24 hours beforehand (cancellations within 24 hours are charged at 50% of the appointment fee).

What should I bring to the appointment?

Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes when you come for your appointment. If you’re having a lower limb assessment, shorts or leggings are best. If it’s for an upper limb problem, please make sure you’re wearing a vest, vest-top or similar.

What if I need a chaperone?

If you feel that you would prefer to have a chaperone with you during your assessment then please bring a suitable person.
