Physiotherapy is a science-based discipline that takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, including the patient’s general lifestyle.
At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical condition such as asthma, and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event.
What to expect
At the start of your first session, your Physiotherapist will take time to listen to you and ask questions about your symptoms, diet, general health, activities and lifestyle. This will help them to make a more accurate diagnosis and suggest an appropriate treatment plan for you to consider.
Physiotherapists use a wide range of gentle, hands on techniques to treat. Treatments vary between patient depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis.
Appointments are available at our newly refurbished clinic in Yattendon.
The cost of each consultation is £48 payable on the day to your practitioner.
Private Health Insurance:
If you would like to use your health insurance to cover the cost of treatment please speak to your practitioner prior to your visit to check that they are registered with your insurance company. It is patient’s responsibility to obtain authorisation for the treatment from the insurance company thereafter.
The payment is required by the patient for each visit and receipts will be provided so you can reclaim the cost of your treatment from your insurance company directly.
Cancellation of your appointment on the day of your appointment or failure to attend will incur a full charge for your appointment.
Because of the physical nature of the treatment, it is not unusual to sometimes feel sore in the first 24-48 hours after treatment. Your Physiotherapist will explain any likely reactions and provide you with the appropriate advice.
If you have any concerns it is important to contact the osteopath and ask their advice.
