What to expect when you book an appointment:
Physiotherapy Assessment and 1st treatment (£50) 45 minutes
A physiotherapist will ask questions about your main complaint, general health, medical history and lifestyle. If you take medication it is helpful to bring along the names and dosages to check there are no contraindications to treatment.
Along with a physical examination, this in depth history helps the physiotherapist to make a diagnosis and form a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
The aim of your individual diagnosis and course of treatment is to build a complete picture of you – to understand your health history, treatment goals, and identify the root of any current health problems.
The physiotherapist will be happy to answer your questions at any stage of the diagnosis, or simply let you relax.
Follow up treatments (£45) 30 minutes.
All procedures will be clearly explained and discussed with you at each session and your consent gained before progressing.
Western medical acupuncture
In theory using acupuncture from a Western medical point of view helps to relieve pain by affecting the ‘pain gate’ in the spinal chord, also triggering release of endorphins- the bodies own natural pain killers.
