What to expect...

You will be given a diagnosis of your injury and the likely causes explained to you in plain English, not just physio mumbo jumbo. Your first session will be 45 minutes long so will start treatment straight away. This will be hands on treatment backed up by the latest research. Our physios are continually doing courses and keeping up to date with the latest research in order to give you the best treatment possible. We will talk through a treatment plan with you based on your goals and what you want to achieve. You will then be given a home exercise program to start and we will know if you have been doing them or not!

What to wear...

To ensure the best assessment and treatment, the injured body site will need to be accessible for therapy. Robes, shorts and towels are available to use, however, patients are encouraged to bring comfortable and appropriate clothes such as shorts and a singlet.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to fill out paper work.

You will receive a confirmation email or text of your appointment time. If by any reason you are unable to make your appointment please call us as soon as possible so someone can use the time.
