Frequently asked questions

What happens at the first appointment?

On your first visit to us a full medical case history will be taken.  We need to know all aspects of your health.

We will ask about your previous injuries, surgery, illnesses, and we will want to know if you’re taking any medication.  After that we will want to see the injury and see you do a few movements. 

Unless we need further investigations, such as scans, we would normally treat you on your first appointment.

You will normally be asked to undress enough for us to see the injury so that we can assess what’s wrong.  If you don’t feel comfortable undressing, just tell us – we can work around that. 

Andy says:  If you’re not sure which therapy to chose, or whether we’re right for you book a Free 20 minute Consultation first.

Come and tell us about your injury.  Explain to us what you want to achieve and which competitions you’re preparing for.  We’ll do the rest.

What happens during treatment?

Once we’ve made a diagnosis, and we are satisfied that it is safe to treat you, we can use a variety of methods to fix your pain.  We might be famous for our clicking, but there are many other techniques we use. These include:

  • Ultra sound
  • Proprioceptive training for balance
  • Mobilisation
  • Strength and Conditioning advice
  • Medical acupuncture
  • Exercise programmes
  • Taping
  • Postural assessment and advice
  • Soft tissue techniques
  • Cupping
  • Stretching  
  • Joint manipulation
  • TENS

We will explain what we are doing throughout your treatment to ensure you are happy with what we are doing. Decisions about treatment, here as in any other medical practice, are entirely yours. We will never use any technique or procedure on you without your consent; so you can ask questions at any time.

Most patients really enjoy treatment, have a look at our testimonials if you need reassurance. Take a look

Steven says: “We have the experience to get you back on track – you are in expert hands.”

What should I wear?

It’s really helpful to us if we can see the area of the body that we are treating.   Normally we ask patients to undress to their underwear, but if you want to wear a T-shirt and shorts, or if you just don’t want to get undressed, that’s fine with us.  

And you can always bring pair of shorts and T-shirt with you to change into.

Ruth says:  Ladies, if you’ve injured your back please don’t wear a sports bra – they cover your spine and we can’t see what’s going on!

Can I claim on my insurance?

Most of our practitioners are registered with private insurance companies, but it does depend on the therapy and practitioner.

If you’re not sure whether you can claim on your insurance please call the insurance company in advance and find out.  You also need to check whether you need a GP referral before coming to us.  Most insurance companies don’t require a GP referral, but some do. 

Once you’ve got the Ok from your insurance company we ask that you pay us after each appointment and then claim the money back from your insurance company yourself.

Important: due to AXA and Bupa being rather dictatorial about osteopathy and physiotherapy fees only our osteopath Jo Jones and CBT practitioner, Nicola Smith are registered with either of them.

If you would like us to recommend an alternative insurance company please do talk to us when you come in for treatment.

Can I bring somebody with me?

Of course you can!   We are very happy for you to have somebody in the treatment room with you.  We are quite used to families coming together or parents bringing kids with them.

Couples, or friends, who train together can help each other with rehab, so sometimes it’s useful to have another person with you.

Incidentally, if we are treating children under the age of 16 we insist that a parent or guardian accompany them.  We also ask that if you’re bringing any children under the age of 16 that they join you in the treatment room and are not left to sit in the waiting room unaccompanied by an adult.

How long are the appointments?

The length of your first  appointment will depend on which practitioner you see.  Ask us for more information so you know what to expect.

Do I need a GP referral?

No, you don’t need a referral unless you have private healthcare and your provider requires you to have a referral.

So you can call us any time, or book online, without having to wait for a GP appointment. Although referral by a GP is not necessary, you are encouraged to keep your GP fully informed so that medical records are up-to-date.

If you have private medical insurance you need to check your cover as some companies specify that you have to have a GP referral.

How many appointments will I need?

The number of appointments you need depends on the injury, what level you’re training at and how long you’ve been injured.

It also depends on what you want to achieve. Some people come to us because they just want to get out of pain. Other people want to prevent the pain occurring again and use us for maintenance treatments to help them train harder.

Our aim is always to make the pain go away and stay away. In the clinic because our jobs are so physical we probably treat each other every 4-6 weeks.

Brooke says:  Some people like to come for maintenance appointments before and after a big competition.  They tell us that this helps their performance on the day and with their recovery.
