What to expect at your appointment

From walking through our doors you may be greeted by a member of our team at our reception desk. If you have an appointment with us, give your name at the desk and then you can relax in our waiting area until your physiotherapist invites you to come through to one of our clinic rooms.

If no one is present in reception upon your arrival and you have an appointment, then our clinician may be busy seeing another client. Again, feel free to relax in our waiting area until a clinician is free to see you. If you require attention you can ring the bell, and we will see to you as soon as we can appropriately do so.

How much does an appointment cost?

Initial physiotherapy assessments will cost £45, and follow-up sessions will be charged at £40.


What does a Physiotherapy session include?

Our expert Physiotherapists will ask a series of succinct yet detailed questions in order to gain a complete understanding of your condition. The physiotherapist will then conduct a thorough physical assessment of any relevant anatomical structures that may be contributing to your condition.

This allows the physiotherapist to accurately diagnose and manage your issue. Once a diagnosis has been reached, you will be provided with appropriate, expert advice plus a bespoke exercise programme.

Depending on the specific condition the physiotherapist may also choose to use massage, joint mobilisations or manipulations, acupuncture or therapeutic taping to promote tissue wellness and ultimately facilitate the complete resolution of your condition.

Do you offer private massage?

Yes! Our Physiotherapists offer a wide range of manual treatment modalities – including massage, acupuncture, joint mobilisations and manipulations.

If you prefer a specific type of treatment and wish to receive this during your session – please state this explicitly at the time of booking; we will happily find a clinician who is able to meet your needs.

How long will it take to get better?

If our Physios had a penny for every time they were asked this question…

Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer or algorithm for this. Every condition or injury, soft tissue, joint, ligament, muscle and person(!) has its own unique timeframe to feeling ‘better’.

Our best advice is to seek expert support; have the area comprehensively assessed, speak to an experienced clinician and discuss your goals – we can guarantee you, you’ll get back to your goals quicker with a physiotherapist on your team than without.

What exercise should I be doing?

Exercise therapy or rehabilitation is the cornerstone treatment modality for our Physiotherapists at Doncaster. Movement is the best medicine!

Every patient who attends an appointment with one of our expert staff can expect to receive a comprehensive, tailored exercise programme. These exercises will be bespoke and specific to your needs; from a shoulder injury you picked up playing tennis to that back pain that’s been grumbling in the background for months… your exercises will be unique and specific to you and your goals.

What if Physiotherapy doesn't fix my problem?

Our Physiotherapists are experts in their field. They have a wealth of musculoskeletal knowledge, so they’re competent in identifying when a condition may need surgical or specialist care.

Each of our Physios are very well connected with local private and NHS specialists and will appropriately and promptly refer patients into these pathways should they need investigations or an orthopaedic opinion.

How long are the appointments?

Physiotherapy appointments are between 20-60 minutes depending on the appointment type; the admin team can confirm this at the time of booking.

How long will I have to wait for a physiotherapy appointment?

We aim to accommodate patients as soon as possible, however, popular times can book up quickly. If you are flexible on timings, we can often find an appointment within a few days. Take a look at our online bookings for live availability.
