Below is a list of the two types of consultation available. You can start with an Initial Consultation that will allow Brad to assess your injury and make a diagnosis. If a follow-up appointment or referral is required, Brad will advise you on this.

 

Initial Online Sports Therapy Consultation (£50)

 

This plan will include:

  • 45-60 minute 1 – 1 video consultation
  • Assessment of posture and movement of the injury site
  • Muscle and Ligament Injury Test
  • A diagnosis of your injury
  • An individual treatment plan prescribed to suit your injury
  • Self-treatment techniques 
  • Mobility drills
  • Unlimited support via email

 

What to expect during your online consultation.

Your Sports Therapist will first acquire some information from you, followed by some questions to gain a deeper understanding of your injury and symptoms, lifestyle, and goals. This will be followed by a physical examination consisting of two parts:

  1. Your Sports Therapist will demonstrate specific movement tests over the video call and then ask you to repeat them. The tests are similar to the ones used in the clinic. They will help establish what anatomical structures may be damaged and test the muscle strength, flexibility, and control of the joints. 
  2. You will then be guided through a palpation examination to examine the parts of your body structures, these being the ligaments, muscles and bone. 

Then, the information that has been collected from the interview will be used to narrow down the injury that you have, which will then indicate which rehab plan is most suitable for you. You will also receive a written report summarising the examination findings and treatment plan. You will be able to contact your sports therapist during the following weeks at any time you choose to if you experience any problems with the treatment or have any questions. 

Your Sports Therapist may feel that your condition requires further investigating in the form of a blood test, X-ray or MRI scan. In this case, you will be asked for your permission to contact your GP to request this – your therapist will never communicate with your GP or anyone else unless you give them your permission to do so. 

The treatment plan will include everything that you should do for the next few weeks. It is solemnly up to you whether you continue with treatment after this, but your treatment programme will have to modify as your injury heals to achieve a full recovery. 

No therapist can provide a treatment programme that will guarantee a full recovery since injuries heal at different rates for different people. You can book a follow-up session that will reassess your injury and provide you with an adjusted treatment and training programme. 

Follow-up Sports Therapy Consultation (£40)

 

This plan will include:

  • 30-minute video consultation 
  • Reassessment of your injury 
  • A regressed/progressed rehab plan
  • A written report 
  • Unlimited support via email

 

What to expect from your follow-up consultation. 

Follow-up consultations are used to reassess your injury and progress and to change your treatment plan. These should be used if you want further treatment or advice for a pre-existing injury that you have already had diagnosed through us via a previous consultation. 

Injuries can vary significantly in severity and heal at different rates; a treatment plan has to be progressed and adjusted according to how the injury responds to treatment. It is entirely up to you to decide if and how often you would like to continue the treatment, but your therapist will be able to guide you on the best course of strategy. 

If more than three months have passed since your last appointment, we will likely have to do an initial consultation appointment instead of a follow-up consultation. Bodes and circumstances change a lot in 3 months, and we run the risk of missing important information if we do not conduct a full examination process.
