Everyone! I am more than happy to treat anyone with a musculoskeletal injury. So any muscle or joint issue whether it relates to golf or not, I can help with.
I just happen to love golf and keeping golfers in the game.
On the off chance your issue is outside my scope of practise, I will help find the person that best suits your needs.
No, anyone can self refer for physiotherapy. Just call, WhatsApp or email to make an appointment.
Just yourself. However, if you have any MRI or X-Ray report, list of medications or a letter from a consultant or doctor you can bring that too.
If the appointment is related to golf, a recent video of your swing taken down the line and from behind you can bee of benefit.
Wear comfortable clothes. If your appointment relates to a leg issue or injury, you can bring a pair of shorts or wear clothing that can be folded up easily.
Despite the rumours physiotherapists do not aim to cause pain. However, the assessment can have you moving more than you are used to & that can make you uncomfortable. The aim will always be to minimise this as much as possible.
Anywhere between 45 and 60 mins. The aim is to be as thorough as possible in the sessions to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
For general aches and pains:
As few as possible! I aim to offer you advice that supports you in getting back to normal in as few sessions as possible. For some that may be achieved in one session, for others they may feel they need closer support for a little longer, that’s ok too.
For golf specific issues:
As few as possible. If you are given a program it will be reviewed every 4-6 weeks for best results.
You can submit your physiotherapy receipts to your insurance provider to get partial reimbursement.
If you do not have private health insurance, you can avail of tax relief for your physiotherapy appointments. Please contact Revenue for more information.
