To join a group class, do I need to have had an assessment first?
Yes, we need to make sure you’re on the road to recovery and that any activity is safe for your specific injury.
How much does treatment cost?
If you are paying for your own treatment, your initial consultation will usually last 45 minutes and will cost £60. A follow-up appointment lasting approximately 30 minutes is £45.
Do I need to be referred?
No, we will assess your condition independently and decide on the best course of treatment for you. However, we do accept referrals from GPs and consultants.
If you are using private medical insurance, please check with your provider, as you may need a referral from an appropriate healthcare professional.
Can I use my private medical insurance?

What is the difference between a physiotherapist, osteopath and chiropractor?
A physiotherapist will diagnose and treat movement-related injuries and conditions, usually for a specific part of the body. An osteopath will treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, focusing on improving the wellness of the entire body by strengthening the joints, muscles and spine. A chiropractor is similar to an osteopath, but tends to focus more on spinal issues.
How will I know who I need to see?
You can see any member of the physical therapy team for an initial assessment. Following their evaluation of your condition and requirements they will ensure your ongoing treatment is with the most appropriate member of the team.
