How many treatments will I need?
This depends on many factors, and all patients are individuals. Our aim is to get you as good as possible, in the fastest time. At the end of a treatment your physio will discuss further eventual treatment's etc. with you. You will be re-assessed on each visit and if progress plateaus or no improvement is seen then this will be discussed and your treatment altered accordingly. If necessary, referral to other specialist or health professionals can be arranged.
What are the opening hours?
