Frequently asked questions
Do I need to see my GP first?
No, you can refer yourself to Pro-Active Physiotherapy, but a GP or Medical Consultant may refer you to a physiotherapist. Physiotherapy is an autonomous profession, therefore, Members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (MCSP) are able to diagnose and treat conditions within the scope of recognised practice. Physiotherapists are able to communicate directly with other health professionals and refer clients to medical specialists if further investigations are required; this is usually through your GP.
What can I expect if I book an appointment?
The initial consultation will include an informal meeting with the physiotherapist to establish the history of your injury or condition. You will be examined which may require removing some clothing; wear loose clothing or shorts and a t-shirt. After the examination you will be given a clear explanation of what your injury or condition is, and how best to treat it. In addition, you will be given a realistic time scale for the resolution of your condition and contingencies if you are not responding to treatment. You will be able to discuss your expectations with your physiotherapist. Facilitating the expeditious return to full occupational, leisure and sport or exercise function is the goal of Pro-Active Physiotherapy.
How often will I have to come?
We do not encourage long-term treatment regimes. On average our clients are seen four times. Certain conditions will of course require more in-put or longer-term rehab.
How do you decide on a treatment?
We believe in evidence-based practices when treating clients. This includes what is published in the most recent literature and also what has achieved the best results in past experience. Most importantly we believe incorporating the client’s values and beliefs are what will help them achieve improved quality of life.
What if I require another professional?
If your particular condition or injury needs further investigation we have the facility to refer you directly to a number of specialist orthopaedic consultants.
What will the fees be?
The initial consultation/treatment lasts 45 minutes to an hour, and costs £45. Follow up appointments last approximately 30 minutes and are £38.
