What to expect at your appointment

Welcome to Hillsborough Physiotherapy! Before your appointment, it might be sensible to put on some clothing that makes it easier for our physiotherapist to assess you (e.g. some shorts if it’s your knee or ankle!). If you’re driving, please park up in one of the spaces on-site – there’s plenty of room.

Is pain or injury affecting your every day life? Our passion is your recovery, and that means that we are 100% dedicated to supporting you throughout your rehab. We are here to help you achieve your recovery goals, be that support with a training plan for a specific event, or just advice about how to get through a day at work without back pain. Our clinicians use their years of experience and wealth of treatment options to tailor your treatment.

During your appointment, you can expect to receive a comprehensive, thorough assessment of your problem. We listen actively to your concerns and work collaboratively with you to make a plan for how to move forward. Your bespoke management plan could include; expert advice, exercise programme prescription, massage, acupuncture, joint mobilisations and much, much more!

Fundamentally, our main aim is to guide you through overcoming your injury and/or pain and getting you back to the things that you love doing – whether that be scooping your grandchild up to give them a hug or completing that Iron Man event later in the year! Whatever your goal, Hillsborough Physiotherapy is here to help.

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 Sandy Hill. 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.

I've heard physiotherapy can hurt. Should I be worried?

Sometimes to fully assess an injury we may need you to perform some movements that might be uncomfortable, but we will never push you into pain. If anything hurts you during your treatment please tell your physiotherapist and they will accommodate you. We try our hardest to make coming to physiotherapy a positive and welcoming experience.
