Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect on my first visit?
First & foremost a friendly welcome to the clinic. We will have a chat about the history of your condition before a thorough musclo-skeletal examination takes place. You will be accurately diagnosed & given a detailed explanation of what is causing your condition. Its likely you will have some hands on treatment, exercise rehabilitation & ongoing preventative strategies.
How many appointments will I require?
Essentially, this is completely your decision. This will be dependent on a number of factors including your diagnosis & the severity of your pain. We always endeavour to keep the number of follow ups to a minimum. We don’t believe in bringing you back to the clinic time & time again. On average we see patients on 2-4 occasions. Its rare you will need to be seen more than 6 occasions. If you just wish to be seen the once for a diagnosis & advice that can often be enough to make the difference.
Can you refer me for scans or to see a specialist?
Yes absolutely. If appropriate we can refer directly for private scans. We also have links with the best consultants/surgeons in South Wales if you need onward referral. If a referral is necessary the clinic will organise this for you. We can also liase with your GP if appropriate.
