Do I need to be referred by my doctor?

No it’s not a problem, simply book yourself in for treatment. We do receive referrals from GP’s, Consultants, and other health professionals; however, it is not necessary.

What happens on your first appointment?

We will take you through the questionnaire that you completed prior to your visit that includes your details, injury history, and overall medical history. This discussion creates a pathway for the most appropriate tests to be carried out which may include looking at your movement patterns, mobility, flexibility, and strength in and other relevant techniques specific to your needs. Depending on the complexity of your case, the assessment may be carried out in part over two sessions. All findings will be discussed with you with the opportunity to ask questions at any point. Our highly skilled practitioners are trained in manual therapy acupuncture and podiatry and all areas of musculoskeletal pain management and foot health. You will be assured the most up to date, effective techniques due to our passion for ongoing professional development. For our osteopaths and physios these may include, soft tissue massage, myofascial manipulation, joint/ spinal mobilization, taping, electrotherapy, laser therapy exercises in many forms, or other appropriate techniques. Treatments are highly bespoke, and an individual plan is made for every patient following the initial consultation at which time we will discuss with you what you and we think is the best approach. This may need to be adjusted as treatment evolves.

Is your clinic registered with insurance companies?

We advise that you check with your insurance company prior to receiving treatment. We do not invoice insurance companies directly on behalf of clients, our exception to this is Tricare. If patients wish to claim, a receipt will be issued to facilitate reimbursement.
