Frequently Asked Questions for Osteopathy, Spinal Therapy and Medical Acupuncture.
If you cannot find the answers to your questions feel free to call our team for a quick non obligatory chat directly on 07702809505.
01. Will I need a consultation before having my treatment?
Yes, in order for us to help you achieve the best results we need to establish the root cause of the problem. That is why your first appointment with us is 1 hour, it gives us enough time to consult, assess and treat, all during your first appointment. Our sports and deep tissue massage therapist can see you without a consultation for a one-off appointment.
02. How many treatments will I need?
People recover at different rates but during the consultation from past experiences we will give you an idea of how long the road to recovery will take. Certainly, changing certain habits can help to contribute to the speed and quality of which you repair. We will always take steps to re-evaluate as we go to assess whether you are on the right track.
03. How long after my first treatment will I start to feel better?
This varies on a case by case basis. Our patients will be given advice and changes to implement at home, this is crucial to feeling better quicker. The misconception a lot of the time is that you should feel worse before you get better, at The Hub we do not believe in this and you should be feeling the benefits straight after the session.
04. I do not think I can afford this?
Almost everyone is concerned with the cost of private care. We offer a pay as you go service and unlike other clinics we have heard about, we do not tie you into packages or convince you to purchase them, because we don’t need to. We feel our service and treatment speaks for itself. That being said, we do offer pre-paid packages that can help reduce the overall cost which can be explained to you if you choose to know more information, just ask. We are certain that our patients will see the benefits from ongoing care and appointments. Whatever your budget, we will make progression and help you. At the Hub, we understand the importance of making big decisions so we suggest speaking to your close ones. Better yet, bring them with you to your next appointment. If you put decisions about improving your well being, often people will not start care and the problem can worsen.
05. What is a FREE pillow check?
Your therapist will ask you to bring your pillow at your next visit. The average sleep is 6-9 hours so why rest on a pillow that is not right for you? Our FREE pillow check is available to all of our patients, even if your symptoms are not related to your neck, shoulder or back. At the Hub our focus is preventative care!
06. What is a FREE car posture check?
We will ask you about the car you have arrived in, and if it is the car that you spend most of your time in. Some people drive for a living or in general need to drive more often than not, assessing your seating position and making adaptations can help with the general alignment of your joints. It does not need to be spinal related it could be the positioning of your shoulders, neck, hip, knee, ankle and/or foot.
07. What is a FREE remote work chair position check?
As you can imagine we cannot visit every patient’s place of work to see how they sit. What we can do though is ask you to email in photos of the way you sit at work. We would ask that you ask a colleague to take certain angled photos of you naturally sitting at work. We will then draw the angulation and lines as to where you should be, as opposed to where you are. Some places of work provide desk work assessments but they don't know you are your body, like we do. We can assist you in correctly adapting your seating position according to the findings from your first appointment giving you a more comfortable working environment. Especially during these COVID-19 times, everyone's positioning has changed as more people are working from home. Let's get you comfortable!
08. I have already seen someone for this, why would this be any different?
All practitioners evaluate each person’s case differently. We invest heavily in the latest technology such as inversion table, recovapro massage gun, advanced electrotherapy machine and low level laser therapy from the worlds leader's and markers in rehabilitation equipment, This coupled with Osteopathy, Spinal Therapy and Medical Acupuncture makes us different to other practices as we mould all of these methods into your treatment time. During your consultation, we will let you know if we are able to help and give you the best possible care, if on the rare occasion we do not feel we can help you, we will always refer you to a specialist that can through the NHS or Private Care. Have a look at our complimentary checks explained on the tabs above to show the multiple checks we do for each case to get you better results.
