On your first appointment, you'll be fully assessed, and only then will we recommend a treatment plan.
TREATMENT IN THE PRACTICE
YOUR ROLE IN YOUR RECOVERY
When you come to the practice, we will make sure you are comfortable and relaxed before we start the treatment.
Your first visit will be a thorough assessment to understand the issue. It will also include some treatment plus an idea of future treatment. At any stage, feel free to ask any questions about what's happening.
We might ask you to perform some excercises at home, or at the local pool for hydrotherapy.
Whatever we ask, it's improtant you do the execercises, as these will help with your recovery.
WHERE DOES YOUR GP FIT IN?
Part of the assessment is to understand the roles of other healthcare professionals as you may have other treatments running in paralell. For example, your GP may be involved in treating something another condition with medication.
Andrew will ask about this and make sure it's all taken into account.
It's £35 - £40 for your first visit, which will involve assessment and some treatment.
It's £35 for each subsequent visit.
One visit lasts about 35 - 45 minutes, depending on what's involved.
