Treatments

 

Who benefits from Sports Therapy?

Treatment helps all patients of all ages to relieve pain and improve movement, allowing the body to function more efficiently. Restoring normal posture and alignment to prevent recurrence and achieving a speedy recovery and happier work and social life.

 

What Conditions can be treated?

Sports Therapists can treat almost all conditions which have one of these symptoms; pain, weakness, stiffness, loss of movement, decreased sports performance and of course, sports injuries.

 

What can I expect when I receive treatment?

Via a thorough assessment, we aim to provide each patient with a diagnosis of their condition; individual treatment plans with approximate duration; and likely prognosis. We discuss every stage with you. The treatments effects will be monitored and, if necessary, adjusted, to ensure that agreed and realistic outcomes can be achieved.

 

How many treatments will I need?

We do not have a set number of treatments for any condition - every patient is an individual. However, following your first appointment the Sports Therapist will discuss the anticipated number of treatments. You will be reassessed on each visit and if progress plateaus out or if no improvement seems apparent then your treatment will be altered accordingly or you will be referred on to a specialist if necessary.

 

Will I be expected to do anything in between treatments?

We work in partnership with you to ensure your recovery is optimal and to minimise the chances of a recurrence. Therefore, you will be given lots of things to think about and do during the week. What you do between treatments is just as important as your treatment. This may include posture correction, sitting better at work/home, exercise at home or your local gym.

 

Is it correct that heat and ice can be used to treat injuries?

They are useful in the correct circumstances. Your Sports Therapist will advise you on when and how to use these for your condition.

 

Should I stop my sports activity if I have suffered an injury?

Appointments

 

Is there a waiting list for treatment?

Whilst we are a busy clinic, we can usually see you within 24 - 48 hours. Sometimes same-day appointments are available.

 

When are we available for appointments?

We are available 7 days a week at each clinic at different times to be flexible to your requirements.

 

How long are appointments?

Your first appointment with either our Sports Therapist or Osteopath will take up to 1 hour. The length of your follow-up will depend on your individual circumstance.

 

What should I wear?

Please wear comfortable clothes and if possible bring a pair of shorts to chance into. As we are holistic therapists that look at you as a whole body as opposed to individual body parts, it is common to undress to underwear so please bring shorts if this would make you feel more comfortable and are welcome to bring a chaperone.

 

Should I have medical notes and X-rays at hand?

Any relevant information about your condition will help the Therapist make an informed assessment, so if possible please have x-rays and notes with you on your first appointment.

Payment

 

What are your payment terms?

Payment is made after each consultation either by cash, or credit/debit card.

 

If I have private medical insurance do I need to pay for treatment?

Each insurer is different in the way that they operate as far as payment is concerned. Some require you to pay for your own treatment and then claim the costs back whereas others allow us to invoice them directly. We strongly advise that you discuss this with your insurer prior to arranging a consultation.
