Physio and Sports Therapy Appointments at Harding Physiotherapy
Appointments are currently available during the following hours:
Tuesday: 0900 - 1600h
You can self-refer directly to the clinic by calling us on 01487 843 844 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org . If you are using Private Healthcare you will need your insurance company to provide you with an authorization number prior to attending you appointment (this may require you to liaise with you GP in some cases).
We will endeavour to offer you an appointment within 48 hours of your enquiry.
Please note, if you are self-funding for Sports Therapy or Physiotherapy payment is due at the time of attendance, and may be made using cash or card. In the case of private or medicolegal insurance work invoices are normally settled directly by the referring company, although this can occasionally, vary depending on your policy.
YOUR PHYSIOTHERAPY INITIAL ASSESSMENT
For all self-funding and private health care referrals please allow up to 45 minutes for your initial assessment. During this appointment a thorough history of your symptoms will be taken, followed by a detailed physical examination of the affected area, including carrying out any special tests which may be indicated. Your physiotherapist will then explain their clinical impression of your injury and advise you of the most appropriate treatment plan.
You will also receive your first treatment in this time. Treatment is likely to include a mixture of "hands on" techniques (such as soft tissue release, joint mobilisation and electrotherapy) and home exercises - specifically chosen to compliment the treatment received during sessions and to promote your rehabilitation. Your physio will happily answer any questions you may have during this assessment.
PHYSIOTHERAPY FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS
For follow up sessions please allow up to 30 minutes.
At each follow up session you will have a re-assessment, to ascertain progress made. Your treatment program and home exercises will be altered accordingly, and treatment during your session is again likely to be a combination of techniques, such as those outline previously. Your physio will happily clarify any details for you, or answer questions throughout this session.
We also offer Sports Therapy with Sophie Mott on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Sophie is a Member of the Society of Sports Therapists and trained specifically to deal with sports or activity related new injuries.
