FAQ’s

How many sessions will I require?

Each person with a neurological problem presents with different symptoms of varying severity. At the end of your assessment the amount of treatment you require will be discussed. This can vary from twice weekly sessions, to one session every 6-8 weeks. It will depend on how much you are able to do independently, or with carer support each day, how much movement you have, and what the ultimate goal is.

I am on a waiting list for NHS treatment. Can you help in the interim?

Quite frequently there is a gap between being discharged home from hospital and Community Rehabilitation Services starting. Often, people find this gap of provision difficult. I am very happy to treat people at this time and either work alongside NHS services when they start to top up Physiotherapy provision or cease treatment.

Do I need a referral?

No, referrals can be made by the individual or a family member/carer. It is helpful to have any relevant medical information available at the assessment appointment.

What is the difference between a Neuro Physiotherapist and a Musculo-skeletal Physiotherapist?

Neuro Physio's have trained in the specialised treatment of individuals with brain and spinal cord problems. Musculo-Skeletal Physio's specialise in sporting injuries and problems with the skeleton and muscles e.g. backs and necks, joints and ligament sprains.
