Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments will I need?
As each condition and person is different, it is difficult to tell how many treatments may be required. However, generally three or four sessions is sufficient and some people may only need one.
How long do treatment sessions last?
Your initial consultation may take a little longer and can last about 45 to 60 minutes. Follow up treatments are 30 minutes.
Do I need to be referred by a Doctor?
You do not need a Doctor’s referral to attend for assessment or treatment but sometimes it may be necessary to refer back to them if NHS medical imaging or consultant referral is required.
If you have private health insurance, they may require a referral or signed form by your Doctor in order to authorise reimbursement of treatment charges.
Does my Medical Insurance cover the treatment?
You will need to be insured for Sports Therapy treatment or Alternative therapies. Being insured for Physiotherapy is not always an indicator that our treatments are covered.
Your Sports Therapist is registered with the CNHC (Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council) and the CThA (Complimentary Therapists Association).
Health & Care Professions Council. We currently do not offer the services of a HCPC registered physiotherapist at the Sport & Performing Arts Clinic.
Will you contact my doctor?
Subject to your approval we can communicate where necessary with your GP or consultant.
We pride ourselves on our professionalism and if we feel this type of treatment is not right for your condition we will refer you to your GP or Consultant.
Can I see a private consultant?
Yes. We have direct arrangements with some of the North of England’s leading specialists and imaging centres.
