Physiotherapy Treatment Sheffield
Why choose 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 huge number of common issues, including the likes of:
- Muscular back pain
- Chronic overuse injuries
- Tendon and ligament sprains
- Frozen shoulder
- Disc protrusion
- Nerve impingement
The list goes on and on. Whatever the issue, though, we guarantee that our large team of physiotherapists will have experience in treating it.
What to expect during your consultation?
After a warm introduction, our physiotherapists will begin by initially asking you a series of questions about your basic health, current levels of activity and future expectations, followed by a thorough assessment of not just the affected area but also the wider body in order to fully understand your injury.
Following your assessment, your physiotherapist will then explain to you your diagnosis, covering any underlying issues, as well as the immediate symptoms, and then proceed to devise a bespoke treatment strategy to get you mobile, pain free and back to normal as quickly as possible. At this point it is really important to us that you fully understand your diagnosis, as well as the treatment approach put forward.
Initial consultations will typically take 30 minutes but are dependent upon the complexity of the problem.
What to expect during your treatment?
Now that the issue affecting you has been properly diagnosed, treatment can begin. Completely tailored to you personally, this could include any combination of the following:
- Joint manipulation and mobilisation
- Soft tissue and myofascial release
- Ergonomic analysis and advice
- Gym-based rehabilitation
- Rehabilitation pilates
- Sports massage
Alongside your sessions you will also find that your physiotherapist will provide you with plenty of instruction for home-based exercise and rehabilitation in order to get you back to normal as quickly as possible.
What to bring or wear to your appointment?
Comfort is key. If the problem relates to your lower limbs, it would be great if you could please bring a pair of shorts. If the problem relates to your upper body or neck, then we would advise ladies to wear some sort of a vest top. It is also advisable to bring trainers with you in case you are required to complete a running assessment.
Just so you’re aware, you are 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, Bupa, AVIVA & Vitality. You may, however, need a referral from your GP in order to claim. As such, we’d always recommend checking your policy and giving us a call just to check.

Some of our Success Stories
I originally came to Katie Bell Physiotherapy & Wellness with a trapped nerve in my neck, torn tendons in a shoulder, almost constant pain eased by quantities of codeine, paracetamol & amitriptyline. 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.Sharon
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.Natalie
I came to Katie Bell Physiotherapy & Wellness with left hip pain that had been there for a long time and was now inhibiting my life and stopping me walking and enjoying life. The experience has been brilliant. Great communication and interpersonal skills. Excellent treatment, motivation and homework. Two post operative home visits kick started my recovery. The best result I have had is…..hip….what hip?! I am so glad I had the surgery and the consultant is amazed by the speed of my recovery. Extra physio with Katie was the major factor.John
