What should I expect at a first appointment?

Firstly an initial consultation will be arranged, which lasts up to one hour. During this time a comprehensive assessment of the current condition will be taken, in addition to details of your past medical history, medication and hobbies.

Following this a thorough physical and functional examination will take place, which may involve you undressing to your underwear in order to carry out an accurate assessment. At the end of the initial consultation a diagnosis of the problem will be given and explained.

The treatment plan will then be discussed and appropriate exercises provided to aid your recovery. Follow up appointments will take about thirty minutes and will be focused on re-assessment of the initial condition and treatment.

How much does an appointment cost?

Please contact the clinic for payment enquiries. Payments are made by cash or cheque after the appointment.

If less than 24 hours notice is given to cancel an appointment, regrettably a fee of 50% of the cost of the consultation will be charged.
