Recover Physio - FAQs
1. Who can benefit from physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists help people by improving movement, relieving pain and ensuring an injury has the best conditions in which to heal, therefore patients of all ages, sporting abilities (or inabilities) and physical abilities can benefit from treatment.
2. How do you decide how to treat me?
The first time you come and see us will be your 'initial assessment'. This will consist of you telling us what has been happening, asking questions and then assessing your injury or symptoms. Once we have found out whats wrong we will decide together on a goal and make a treatment programme.
3. How many treatments will I need?
Every individual and every condition is different, so we can't say until after your initial assessment, but we will give you an idea at the end of that.
4. What conditions do you treat?
Please see our 'What we treat' page.
5. Can Physiotherapists treat back and neck problems?
Yes, all Chartered Physiotherapists are qualified to treat all spinal problems, including using manipulations.

2. What time are you open?
We offer a range of times to suit you throughout Monday to Friday.. The earliest appointment times are 8am and the latest is 9pm.
