How can physiotherapy help me?

The aim of physiotherapy is to restore normal movement and function and help to alleviate pain. Whether your problem arises from sitting for many hours at a desk, or spraining your ankle whilst exercising - we are here to assist you.

Are your Physiotherapists fully qualified?

All physiotherapists at the Kingsfield centre have trained extensively within a hospital setting before choosing to specialise in outpatient work. We are all registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). We all have different specialities that we have achieved through further and ongoing training. At the Kingsfield Centre we have physios who work in specialist roles including acupuncture, McKenzie regime, Pilates, Temporomandibular Joint problems (TMJ/TMD), post-op breast cancer & vestibular dysfunction (Epley manoeuvre).

What can I expect at my first appointment?

At the initial appointment, the physio will ask a series of questions to ascertain the history of the current condition and any previous medical history; medications & surgery.

There will then be an examination of the affected area to establish the cause of the problem (please wear loose fitting clotting when you attend the appointment, or bring some with you).

The physio will then explain the findings to you, discuss the goals and develop a treatment plan. Sometimes it is necessary to refer for further surgical/medical opinion.

Is the centre access friendly?

Yes, we have a ramp at the front of the building for wheelchair access & a wheelchair accessible toilet.

Do I need to call ahead to have treatment?

Yes, please call or contact us so that we can book you an appointment.
