Your initial assessment is a vital stage in any physiotherapy treatment. This allows us a chance to get to know you and your needs - as well as your family if this is appropriate. We believe that everybody is different, so getting to know you is vital to ensure that we work well as a team. Physiotherapy is about us working with you to achieve your goals, offering guidance and advice, so this team relationship needs time to form.
We will happily assess you wherever you live, we happily visit nursing homes and residential homes or come to your own home. Seeing you in your own environment is very useful as it allows us to tailor your treatment appropriately as well as assess any difficulties you may have moving around your own environment.
Typically, your initial assessment will last around an hour and we will discuss your difficulties and work out together how we can address these. We will also discuss any goals that you would like to work towards. We will ask lots of questions, but hope that you will ask us lots of questions too! No question is a silly question.
Cost - £40 for an initial assessment within 5 miles of Tavistock
(£50 for visits up to 15 miles of Tavistock to cover travel time)
Follow up visits
Depending on your assessment, we may recommend further sessions with the physiotherapist. This will depend on the goals you have set with us and how we feel we can help you to achieve these goals.
There is no limit to the number of sessions we can provide, or how often. We are flexible as to the days or times that we can visit you and by arrangement are happy to meet with relatives as well if this is appropriate.
Ongoing assessment will be taking place to monitor progress and goals can be re-evaluated as necessary. If for any reason you are admitted to hospital or experience a new condition, we may need to repeat the assessment, but this will be discussed at all stages.
Cost - £35 per session within 5 miles of Tavistock
(£45 for visits up to 15 miles of Tavistock to cover travel time)
If you need ongoing treatment, we have several packages that we can offer with discounts for multiple treatments booked in advance. We will discuss these with you in your initial assessment.
