FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long does each session last?
The initial assessment for Physiotherapy and Acupuncture will last 45 minutes with follow-up sessions ranging from 30-60 minutes depending on your treatment plan.
For chiropody, the initial assessment will depend on your specific condition, but typically ranges between 30-45 minutes and follow up sessions around 20-30 minutes.
How many sessions will I need?
It depends. Our therapists can provide you with a more accurate timeline depending on your concerns and movement goals. However, for minor concerns you may feel better within 4-6 sessions, however more chronic injuries or issues may take longer to see significant results. Your therapist will work together with you during the initial session to create a program that is realistic and targeted for your goals.
Can I get physiotherapy or acupuncture even if I'm not in pain or injured?
