Questions & Answers

What should I wear?

As with any medical examination, you may be asked to undress to your underwear, so please wear something you are comfortable in. Bring shorts or tracksuit trousers for lower back problems.

Can I bring a friend or relative?

Yes if you wish, you can have someone present throughout your consultation and treatment.

Do I need to see my doctor first?

You do not need to see your doctor first if you are paying for your own treatment. However, some insurance companies require you to see your doctor first.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you need depends on the condition and person we are treating. We aim to keep your appointments to a minimum and strongly encourage self-maintenance and independence. Your physiotherapist/osteopath will be able to tell you within a short period of time whether they can treat your problem or if they need to refer you to someone else.
