Most patients with back or neck injuries/pain will either self refer for physio or will be referred by their GP/hospital consultant.
Depending on your spinal problem, it may be more beneficial for you to see a physiotherapist with highly specialist skills and experience relating to your specific problem, if this is the case then I will happily recommend the most appropriate therapist for you.

Your Back injury Physiotherapy appointment will be typically 30 to 45 minutes for a new referral. During that time i will carry out a thorough clinical assessment and ensure you receive advice, education and management strategies. I encourage patients to take responsibility for there own health and will often include Physiotherapy pool and gym exs to their rehabilitation programme.
Should you need further investigation I will refer you back to your GP or Consultant for their opinion as this is a medical decision.
My aim is to return patients back to their work and sport as soon as possible. The length of time this takes depends on the injury and the Physiotherapy treatment required and the specific demands of your work or particular sport, The healing time of injury and rate of progress through rehabilitation goals are all factors in the return to activity. It is very important that you take responsibility for completing your Physiotherapy exs
As a Physiotherapist i am recognised by the major insurance companies to provide Physiotherapy in Glasgow, but it is wise to contact them before any consultation. You will need to get authorisation from your insurer before attending for Physiotherapy and also inform them as to which of my clinics you will be attending.
