Frequently Asked Questions

How long are appointments?
Your first appointment is normally a little longer to ensure we make a thorough assessment of your problem. This will include some questions about your problem (for example, when it started or how it affects you in daily life), a physical assessment and the start of your treatment. This may take up to 45 – 60minutes. Each session after this will last 30 – 45 minutes.
Does my treatment start on my first appointment?
Your first appointment will start your treatment but is also a full assessment. If you would like to ensure a longer and fuller treatment session on your first appointment you can book a first appointment and follow up appointment back to back. Please book on line or call us to arrange this.
How many treatments will I need?
It is difficult to say how many treatments you might need, as every condition and person is different so your plan is personalised for you. Your physiotherapist will be able to advise you what your treatment will involve and how long it will take after their assessment.
What should I wear for an appointment?
In order to fully assess your problem, usual for physiotherapists to ask be able to view the part of the body causing concern. Suitable underwear should be worn, and we also recommend light comfortable clothing as you may be asked to complete some physical tasks. If you have any concerns about this, or require a particular gender of physiotherapist, please let us know when making the appointment.
What do I need to provide?
If you have any scans, reports or letters these could be very helpful in telling us about your problem and past treatments.
What quality checks are made for the physiotherapist that work for The Mobile Physio?
All physiotherapists have multiple checks and registrations.
1. All have DBS checks
2. All are registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council

Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No, you do not need to be referred by your doctor. Physiotherapists are independent professionals that assess and treat autonomously. Your doctor may recommend that you need to see a physiotherapist for your condition.
How much space is needed and does the physiotherapist bring a therapy bed?
Your physiotherapist will not always require to use a therapy bed as this depends on your issues to be assessed. We do recommend that there is a clear space available for the physiotherapist to work in and/or put their therapy bed as required
