What Andy says:

My extensive experience in dealing with musculo-skeletal conditions enables me to quickly assess the appropriateness of physiotherapy intervention for a particular condition, will I help or not!!

I usually provide solutions for problems quite quickly ..sometimes in just one session …but sometimes a little longer!! (too many sometimes)

However physiotherapy is not the be all and end all ..on occasion problems need further investigation it may be that you have to be referred to your GP or perhaps a consultant for further opinion.

I have developed a network of local orthopaedic and spinal consultants so with the agreement of your GP can refer you to the right person to help you further.
