FAQ's

Q What should I expect in my first physiotherapy session.

AWe advise that you arrive 5-10 minutes early for your first appointment to allow time to complete registration documents. Your therapist will then greet you from reception and take you through to the consultation room where you will be asked your reason for attending, the nature and history of your condition and any details that may be relevant to your assessment or treatment. The therapist will then do a detailed assessment on you to arrive at a diagnosis. Once a diagnosis has been made, the therapist will explain the findings and outline a treatment plan. If there is time, treatment will be given as part of your first session.

Q What should I wear.

A We generally advise that you wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. We also suggest that you wear/bring shorts for hip, knee or back problems. You may be asked to remove one or more items of clothing to enable the therapist to assess your condition. Any clients wishing to bring a chaperone are more than welcome.

Q What to expect on my follow up physiotherapy session.

A The follow up sessions generally last for 30 minutes. During the follow up session, we discuss the progress with you and alter the management plan if needed, after discussing with you various options of treatment available.

Q How quickly will my symptoms resolve.

A Everyone is different and responds differently to treatment. In the majority of cases, we would expect to see symptoms eased after the first session but in other cases it may take a few sessions to really notice a difference. It is important to note that on some occasions, your symptoms may become temporarily aggravated following a session. This is a normal reaction, particular if your injury is quite acute. It is nothing to be worried about but is important to feedback to your therapist so treatment can be adjusted in subsequent sessions.

Q where can i park while visiting the clinic.

A we have plenty of parking on the rear of the clinic building. There are two disabled parking spaces in front of the clinic. Our Clinic has good disabled access.

Q What is your cancellation policy.

A Should you wish to cancel your appointment, we ask that you give us at least 24 hours’ notice so that we can offer the slot to someone else. For late cancellations, we reserve the rights to charge you for the full cost of the appointment.

Q How do I claim on private medical insurance.

A We are able to bill your insurance provider directly but the contract for payment is held with the individual client. Should the insurance company refuse to pay; the client will be asked to settle the account in full. In order for us to bill your insurance provider, we simply need the name of the policy holder, your membership or policy number and authorisation code. We also need to know details of excess and treatment limitations prior to starting your course of treatment. We are recognised by all major medical insurers. Please ask us for a full list. If we are not recognised by your insurer, we may be able to apply for recognition so please ask.

Q What forms of payment do you accept.

A We currently accept cheques, cash and debit or credit card payments (we do not accept american express). We can also take payments over the phone and will shortly be introducing web payments so you can pay as you book to make it even more convenient for you.
