Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why should I use Physio-Neuro rather than my local physiotherapy practice?  Physio-Neuro only treats people with a neurological condition, which is a specialist branch of physiotherapy. Your local physiotherapy practice is likely to be a specialist in the treatment of sports injuries, muscle sprains, neck and back pain.

What does Chartered Physiotherapist mean? A Chartered Physiotherapist has completed an approved course of study and is accountable for their actions. They are regulated by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy in the UK and will have the initials MCSP after their name.

What does State Registered Physiotherapist mean? A State Registered Physiotherapist is registered with the Health Professions Council, which is the government regulatory body. Only Chartered Physiotherapists can be registered, and will have the initials SRP after their name.

Do I need a referral to Physio-Neuro? No, we accept self referrals. We also accept referrals from doctors and other health professionals. 

Do you have a clinic I need to come to? No. Physio-Neuro is a mobile service. We believe that with neurological conditions it is better to treat you in your own home, so that you are more relaxed, less tired and don't have the stress of traveling. It also means that the physiotherapist can see what difficulties you might have at home.

Do you treat children? Yes. A legal guardian needs to be present at all times during treatment.
