What makes Katie Bell Physiotherapy different?

At Katie Bell, we’re passionate about the whole package, from lifestyle and stress levels, to fitness, posture and nutrition. We go beyond simply solving your pain, but deliver long-term solutions that solve the root of your problem or discomfort. Our team of physiotherapists is determined to help you move better, look better and feel better. 

What to expect during your physio assessment?

After a warm introduction, our friendly physiotherapists will ask you a series of questions about your basic health, current levels of activity and future expectations, followed by a thorough assessment of the affected area and the rest of your body to fully understand your pain and discomfort. This is where we want to get a clear understanding of what and how this problem is impacting your life. At this point, we will also establish what you want to achieve and gain from coming to get this problem sorted. 

Following your initial assessment, your dedicated physiotherapist will explain your diagnosis, covering any underlying issues, as well as your immediate symptoms. Your physiotherapist will then make a professional recommendation based on the findings and explain how we can help, and what that journey will look like to get your back to full fitness as quickly as possible.  

Your initial assessment is always for an hour, to provide enough time for our diagnosis and importantly our prescription of treatment, plus we like to get the treatment started there and then, plus you will always leave with a plan to move forwards. 

What should you expect during your bespoke treatment?

Once we’ve properly diagnosed the issue affecting you, we can begin your bespoke treatment. Completely tailored to your needs personally, this could include any combination of the following:

  • Joint manipulation and mobilisation.
  • Soft tissue and myofascial release.
  • Ergonomic analysis and advice.
  • Home or Gym-based rehabilitation.
  • Rehabilitation Pilates.
  • Acupuncture.
  • Sports massage.
  • Taping

Alongside your sessions, your physiotherapist will provide you with plenty of instruction for home-based exercise and rehabilitation to get you recovered as quickly as possible.

What should you bring or wear to your appointment?

Comfort is key when coming to our clinic. If the problem relates to your lower limbs, please bring a pair of shorts so the area is easily accessible. If the problem relates to your upper body or neck, then we would advise ladies to wear some sort of vest top. We also advise you bring trainers with you in case we need you to do a running assessment.

We want you to feel comfortable at our clinic, so you’re more than welcome to bring a friend or family member along to your treatment. And please do let us know if you’d rather be seen by a same-sex therapist.

Will your health insurance company cover fees?

Most likely. Katie Bell Physiotherapy & Wellness is recognised as a provider for most insurance companies, including AXA, WPA, , AVIVA, Westfield Health, CIGNA and Vitality. You may, however, need a referral from your GP to claim, so we’d always recommend checking your policy. You can also give our team a call if you need any advice – we’re happy to help where we can.

Why should you choose to do physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is about helping you achieve your maximum potential through movement and function, allowing you to live your life to the fullest. This could mean any number of things — from being able to train for a triathlon, to simply being able to sit pain-free at your desk at work.

In terms of being free from pain or discomfort, physiotherapy can help with a number of common issues, including:

  • Muscular back pain.
  • Sciatica.
  • Bursitis.
  • Tendinitis.
  • Chronic overuse injuries.
  • Tendon and ligament sprains.
  • Frozen shoulder.
  • Disc protrusion.
  • Arthritis.
  • Nerve impingement.

Whatever your issue, we guarantee our friendly team of physiotherapists will have experience in treating it. If you have any questions about our physiotherapy services, please contact us

What are the signs you should go see a physio?

Whatever your reason for delaying going to see a physio, there are several tell-tale signs that it’s probably time to stop ignoring that pain or injury and to seek some professional advice. These signs include:

  1. Not moving as easily as you used to.
  2. You are having to adapt what you do due to pain
  3. You have had to stop playing your sport/hobby.
  4. Your sleep is being disturbed.
  5. Something just ‘feels different.
  6. You’re in constant pain.
  7. An old injury keeps flaring up.
  8. You’re experiencing pain in other areas.

Although these are strong signals to book a physiotherapy appointment. The longer we leave it, the more adaptations are body goes through and the longer it takes to solve. 

Physiotherapy at Katie Bell isn’t just about treating or preventing injury, its about promoting optimal wellness. Often we forget just how good it feels to feel good. We all have certain areas of weakness, stiffness and discomfort in our body, which we grow accustomed to. Physiotherapy is there to address these and to optimise how you feel on a day to day basis. For more information on when you should go and see a physiotherapist, read our blog post

How many physio sessions might it take before seeing progress?

Quite understandably, the first question most people ask following an assessment of their injury is “How long will it take to recover?”. At Katie Bell Physiotherapy & Wellness, we aim to help you recover as quickly as possible. But, although frustrating, there are many variables at hand for each individual, and a number of ways to know what to roughly expect.

Firstly, the extent of your injury is key. For minor injuries you might expect two to three sessions of physiotherapy; for soft tissue injuries you would be looking more towards six to eight weeks, which is roughly how long it takes for soft tissue to heal in most cases. More chronic or serious conditions can take three or more months of treatment depending on the level of progress that you’re making.

The number of weeks required doesn’t necessarily equate to the number of physiotherapy appointments you have. It’s often the case that your appointments become less frequent over time, with more emphasis placed on doing exercises at home. 

At Katie Bell Physiotherapy & wellness we have rehabilitation programs specifically designed by our team to optimise your recovery. We believe in providing real results, and therefore our programs of treatment help you stay on track, get the results quickly and it is the most cost effective way of having treatment. 

With this in mind, your own level of commitment to your recovery is also very important. Patients who progress the fastest tend to be people who commit to completing the exercises and stretches prescribed by our physio team, as well as making positive changes to their diet and sleep habits. With only a short period of time spent together each week or fortnight, the time you spend outside the treatment room is just as important.

For anyone visiting the clinic, please be reassured that we have put in place the very highest of checks and procedures to ensure the clinic remains Covid-secure for our visitors. Throughout all of this, we will continue to do everything we possibly can for our community of clients who need our help more than ever!

Physiotherapy Testimonials

“I originally came to Katie Bell Physiotherapy & Wellness with a trapped nerve in my neck, torn tendons in a shoulder, almost constant pain. I had previously had to have cortisone injections for the relief too. After the 1st appointment I haven’t taken pain relief and have been doing the exercise program. I have occasional nerve pain, but adding Pilates in has really made a difference on that too. Not being in pain has given me my life back. My range of movement and my confidence has improved so much. I now feel really good, and friends who I don’t see often have commented unprompted on the difference in me.”

“I unfortunately developed a hip issue during lockdown and contacted Katie Bell for help. I had weekly online physio with Guy. I cannot believe how well it worked. I went from not being able to walk without excruciating pain to being able to go back to 7 mile walks pain free. Guy gave me weekly exercise routines to rebuild my strength and via zoom checked I was doing them correctly and progressing. I can not recommend Guy and the team enough…”

“I came to Katie Bell Physiotherapy & Wellness with a problem with my knees which was affecting my back and making me struggle with walking. The experience has been wonderful. I have gained more flexibility and better range of movement in my legs. I can go for hikes with the family and stand most of the day working with no issues. I feel a lot more happier with my range of movement and having less pain.”
