Please ensure you compare the actual face-to-face time when looking at different clinics. We only employ very experienced specialists and as such, they are remunerated in line with this. Our treatment session average of less than 5 per condition, which includes everything from complex post-surgical rehab to simple muscle pulls, is a lot less than some of our competitors, so we would advise you to look at the bigger picture. We have completed more than 16,000 appointments in Northamptonshire across the company, and have 5-star reviews, for a reason.....
Routine Assessment/Treatment - £62.50 (45 mins)
Each Physiotherapist has a whole 45 minutes blocked for each patient they see in this category, which is the most common. This is roughly split into a 30-35 minute face-to-face session, 5 minutes of routine paperwork, and 5 mins clean down/sanitisation. If you require more paperwork, such as GP or consultant letters, you may have slightly less face-to-face time to accommodate this, but this will be managed accordingly on a case-by-case basis. If you feel you have a complex case, or have multiple conditions, please call us to see if we need to extend your session (for an additional fee), as we do not want you to feel you have not gained what you wanted from the session and we appreciate not everyone is the same.
Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy has become an invaluable addition to our toolkit in treating more chronic conditions where we need to get our body to restart the inflammatory process. In the past we have limited this to a package-only treatment, however, we now feel that it has become so entwined with our normal care where appropriate, that it should not be a standalone process, so we are no longer charging separately for this.
To that end, If shockwave is appropriate and will make up part of your treatment, it will just be included as part of the normal cost.
Acupuncture - £62.50.00 (45 mins)
The evidence surrounding acupuncture in modern medicine is constantly changing however we do feel it is still worth including it in our care in specific cases. In line with the most recent research, where we do offer acupuncture, it is part of a bigger clinical treatment session and is rarely, if ever, given in isolation. We certainly do not offer you another £200 worth of dried herbs etc etc as part of the aftercare. Due to this, the session prices, as well as face to face time, are largely in keeping with the routine assessment/treatments.
Complex Spinal Pain - £125.00 (60 mins)
In physiotherapist Chris Heywood, we have one of the most experienced spinal physiotherapists in the region, and beyond.
Being the founder and owner of the company, Chris has a lot to do away from the coal face, so to speak, so his patient-facing time is now greatly reduced. In order not to lose his knowledge and skills, however, we have created this service for the 'more complex' of you.
Having worked as a clinical research fellow alongside consultant spinal surgeon, Nick Birch for over 10 years (see bio for international research history and multiple high-level publications) he has assessed, diagnosed, and rehabilitated even the most complex spinal presentations over the years, whether non-operatively or post-operatively. He also has a Masters Degree in Pain Management. He has close ongoing working relationships with leading neurosurgeons, specialist spinal orthopedic consultants, and their teams, so if you have a spinal problem that has not been rectified elsewhere, or you are not satisfied with your previous care, do not give up until you have seen Chris. It would be irresponsible to suggest everything is curable because it is not, and sometimes what we can do is minimal, but we will always be completely honest, and even in the most helpless situations, there is normally some way to help at some level.
The sessions are 60 mins long with roughly 45 mins face to face-to-face time. This allows you time to report your full history, cover any related historical medical documents you may bring, and have a full and thorough assessment. After this you will be taken through the findings in easy language, talked through your appropriate treatment options, whether with us or elsewhere, and try to ensure you get everything you need.
