Your First Consultation – Steps Towards Rehabilitation

 

The first step towards rehabilitation is a thorough consultation, whether you need treatment for major sports injuries, or a simply a course of podiatry appointments. On your first visit, our physiotherapists, podiatrists, osteopaths and practitioners will carry out a full assessment of your needs. This will ensure we offer the right kind of care or treatment going forward.

 

There is nothing to worry about when you come for your first consultation. It’s simply a chance for you to meet with our friendly team and start on a programme of care that suits you. All our treatments and consultations are confidential, so you can be sure of complete privacy whatever your condition.

  • a diagnosis and prognosis
  • talking to you about what treatment you’ll need
  • establishing an ‘Outcome Measure’ to benchmark the effectiveness of your treatment
