What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that aims to assess, diagnose and treat diseases, injuries or deformities. A physiotherapist’s aim is to help maintain health by managing pain and preventing further injury or disease.

What type of conditions can physiotherapists treat?

A fully qualified physiotherapist that has undergone all the relevant training is capable of treating all conditions where symptoms of pain, muscle imbalance, loss of function, weakness are present.

What can I expect in an appointment?

A first appointment will always be a thorough assessment where the underlying problem is diagnosed, assessed and treated. A prognosis of a condition will be explained so that you have an understanding of what stage the problem is at.

How many treatments do I need to have?

There is no set amount of treatments that one person could and should have. However the physiotherapists work in unison with you so that progressions are regularly made and goals are met. Each and every client presents differently and the physiotherapist will use their professional clinical rationale to explain how treatments work for a given condition.

How does physiotherapy differ from alternative therapies?

Physiotherapists use clinically evidence based methods that have scientific proof rather than just being based on what should happen.

Is there a waiting list?

We pride ourselves on maintaining a flexible diary so that we are able to see you at your convenience. We are usually able to see people within 24 to 48 hours of initial contact.

Am I covered by my medical insurance?

We have contracts with all major insurance companies. Please bring details of your medical insurance with you to your first appointment and check your "allowance" for physiotherapy with them, as some insurers restrict the number of sessions they will fund.
