FAQ

1. How soon can I get an appointment?
You will be offered the next available appointment (quite often this is the same or next day). Early treatment means a quicker recovery.

2. Will I be treated in my first consultation?
Yes. Our main concern is our clients well being. We aim to relieve your pain or discomfort as soon as possible, we achieve this by offering immediate treatment. Your first visit will incorporate the initial assessment and treatment. A detailed history of your present condition and medical status will be taken, followed by a methodical and thorough clinical examination. The diagnosis of your presenting condition will be discussed and together your treatment plan will be established.

3. How long do treatments last?
Generally sessions last for approximately 30 minutes.

4. Will I be given exercises?
Exercises are often an integral element to achieving a full recovery. Most clients will be given exercises at the end of each session to do in between treatments to optimise the recovery process. We always give advice on the management of conditions. Custom made exercise materials are also available.

5. Do I need a GP referral?
A GP referral is not necessary. If you have a GP referral you are more than welcome to present it to us alongside any MRIs or X-rays you may have.

When you attend a Chartered Physiotherapist, you can be sure of a professional, scientific approach to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of your complaint and a therapist who has qualified with a University degree and who is committed to continuing education and research.
Chartered Physiotherapists are recognised and covered by VHI, Quinn Healthcare, Aviva and other health insurance schemes.

14. Where can I park?

Free parking is available at both locations.

15. What shall I wear?
During your initial assessment, the Physiotherapist will need to examine areas of your body adjacent to the problem area to ensure that nothing is missed that could be important. We ask you to dress appropriately. If you are attending for assessment and treatment of lower back, hip, knee and ankle joints please bring a pair of shorts. This will allow your chartered physiotherapist to examine your biomechanics and posture. For neck, upper back and shoulder conditions a loose fitted top is required.

16. I think I have damaged my ankle, if I need a brace/splint can you source it for me?
Yes, if it is the case that you require an off the shelf device we can order that for you or if it is a case where you require one to be custom made for you we can refer you to the appropriate people.

17. How do I get a copy of my chart?
Should you wish to obtain a copy of your physiotherapy chart we will require the following: A signed letter detailing your name and address & any previous ones that may be on your chart and also your date of birth for identification purposes. We require this letter at least 24 hours prior to sending out your chart.
