We assess and incorporate nutrition, stress management, and sleep quality into our treatment plans, recognising their influence on physical health and recovery.

Central to our practice is a client-centred care model, which prioritises each patient’s needs, goals, and preferences. This approach is characterised by:

FAQs

Choosing physiotherapy can bring up many questions about what to expect from your sessions, the costs involved, and the types of conditions treated. Here, we address some of the most common queries to help you understand how Chester Wellness Centre can assist you on your path to recovery.

Q: What can I expect during my physiotherapy sessions?
Each session is tailored to your specific needs. Still, your first visit will typically involve a detailed assessment, during which your physiotherapist will discuss your medical history, symptoms, and any specific issues you are experiencing. Following this, a treatment plan will be devised. Depending on your condition, each session may include manual therapies, exercises, and possibly the use of modalities such as ultrasound or shockwave therapy.

Q: How long does each physiotherapy session last?
The duration of each session can vary depending on the treatment required. Typically, initial consultations last approximately 60 minutes to allow a full assessment and treatment planning. Subsequent sessions generally last between 30 to 45 minutes.

Q: What are the costs involved in physiotherapy?
Costs can vary depending on the treatment type and the session length. We recommend contacting Chester Wellness Centre for the most accurate and up-to-date pricing information. We accept most major private care insurances, which can cover part or all of the cost of your treatment sessions.

Q: What results can I expect from physiotherapy?
Results vary depending on the individual condition and patient compliance with treatment and home exercise programs. However, our goal is always to reduce pain, enhance mobility, and improve your quality of life. Many patients notice improvement within a few sessions, but more chronic or severe conditions might take longer to respond to therapy.

Q: What types of conditions do you treat?
At Chester Wellness Centre, we treat a wide range of conditions including but not limited to:

  • Chronic ailments like arthritis and repetitive strain injuries.
  • Acute injuries include sprains, strains, and sports injuries.
  • Post-operative rehabilitation to aid recovery after surgery.
  • Specific conditions like back pain, neck pain, knee pain, and shoulder pain.

Q: What does follow-up care involve?
Follow-up care is crucial to ensure long-term success and prevent recurrence of injuries. It may include periodic check-ups, maintenance physiotherapy sessions, and updates to your home exercise program. We also provide ongoing support and education to help you manage your condition independently.

Our physiotherapists are dedicated to providing you with all the necessary tools and knowledge to continue progressing outside our clinic. We strive to empower our patients to maintain and build upon the improvements achieved during their physiotherapy sessions.
