Frequently Asked Questions
1. What do I need to bring for my appointment?
It is useful to wear loose fitting clothing and be prepared to take any clothes off. Bring some shorts to change into or wear a strappy top and leggings, if you do not wish to take your top or trousers off. Bring your authorisation number too if you are claiming through your insurance scheme.
3. Will I need a course of treatment?
Not necessarily. The average number of treatments is 6 but patients who present early with a problem often benefit from 2 – 4 sessions. There are many factors to take into consideration but even having an assessment and getting a diagnosis, a prognosis and a management plan, this will often start you in the right direction in doing self-management care and exercises at home. This will enable you to start to heal correctly to resolve your pain and increase your function.
