Need A Bit More Info?

Explore our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section, where we address common queries and provide valuable information to help you better understand our physiotherapy services. Please get in contact with us if you have any questions that have not been answered.

If you are unsure whether physiotherapy is the most appropriate for you, please contact us and we can discuss your individual condition/injury.

At your first appointment, you will be greeted in the waiting area and taken into the clinic room. Your physiotherapist will check the details on the Client Intake Form (medical form) that you will have been sent via email and completed electronically before your appointment. If you had trouble filling this form in, we will complete it with you in your initial assessment. Your physiotherapist will ask questions about your medical history and the injury/condition you have.  If you wish to have acupuncture and/or cupping (if appropriate), your physiotherapist will check that you have read the patient information leaflet emailed to you and the consent form is completed. 

Next, your physiotherapist will conduct a physical exam and carry out any special tests needed to fully assess your injury/condition. If appropriate to your injury/condition, your physiotherapist may use VALD Technology to assess your injury and may conduct a Footscan.  Your physiotherapist will then discuss a plan for treatment and will provide you with advice and/or treatment during this initial appointment. 

This appointment is only for a Footscan and will not include any further special tests/assessments of your injury. 

Your physiotherapist will take the time to find out about your injury/problem and assess your feet. Your feet and shoes will be measured with templates. Your physiotherapist will show and explain the system to you. Then your physiotherapist will conduct the Footscan in static (standing still) and dynamically (moving). Your physiotherapist will take the time to explain the results and what they mean and answer any questions. 

If Phits orthotics are recommended, we will explain what they are, show you some samples, and explain what would work for you. If you choose to purchase Phits, we will then order your orthotics once payment has been received and let you know when they arrive for you to collect.  This is approximately 4 weeks after the order is placed, although delivery times can vary.

Initial assessments last 60 minutes. Every client must have an Initial Assessment first, unless booking a Footscan Analysis only.

Footscan Analysis appointments last 30 minutes.

Treatment sessions are 30 minutes or 60 minutes. Your physiotherapist will advise which they feel is most appropriate based on your injury.

If you are using your Private Medical/Health insurance and the insurer pays us direct, then all appointments will be 30 minutes, including your initial assessment. The initial assessment will not include any treatment due to the length of the appointment.

This will be discussed with you at your initial appointment and an estimation given based on the findings for your injury. We will not tell you that you must come in for x amount of sessions, we are honest and if we feel that you do not need any more sessions we will tell you this. If for any reason we feel that you require further tests or scans, we will write to your GP for any referrals.
