what to expect:

If you haven't visited SRC Physio before, we’ve outlined the process of what to expect when attending our clinic. ​

  • You can self refer to Physiotherapy and start treatment whenever you wish.  However  if you wish to claim your treatment costs back through your medical insurer, please check your insurance policy as they may require you to have authorisation from your GP or consultant before they cover the treatment costs.
  • We see people of all ages from children to elderly clients.
  • At your first visit, we will need to take a few details so we can keep your GP or specialist informed if required.
    We will also need you to consent to the examination and let us know if there are any medical conditions that we need to be aware of.  Initial Physiotherapy appointments will take up to 45 minutes as your Physiotherapist will need time to do a thorough assessment, follow up appointments will be 30 minutes long.
  • ​​Your first session will include a discussion with the team member treating you, so they can better understand your pain, the cause of pain and your medical history.  Bring along any referral letters, scans, reports that you may have relating to your problem.
  • You will then be assessed by your physio and your problem will be diagnosed.
  • Be prepared to expose bits of your body, if we are looking at your  shoulder, knee or back for example, we need to see it!  We suggest you bring a pair of shorts if the problem is related to your leg or lower back.  For ladies we recommend you wear a vest top if your complaint relates to your upper body/neck.
  • Your treatment for your injury or problem many include manual therapy, ultrasound, exercises, massage or acupuncture, depending on the issue.
  • At the end of your session, any exercises and/or the best course of action for your treatment will be discussed and agreed with you and as well as identifying any need for further treatment.
  • Follow-up consultations/treatments are usually 30 minutes. Your Physio will constantly re-evaluate your progress and give you feedback as to whether they think the appointments required to rehabilitate your injury has changed.​

"Susan and her colleagues at SRC Physio were helpful, professional and friendly and the treatment I received was very effective. The cause of my pain was clearly explained as was each stage of the various types of treatment they used to help me. I was also given exercises to continue doing at home, with diagrams and videos, to help prevent the problem reoccurring. I am happy to recommend them."
