How many treatments will I need ?

There is no pre-determined number of treatments for a specific condition. However following your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will discuss and agree a treatment plan with you.

I’ve previously had physiotherapy, osteopathy or chiropractic and it didn’t work, is it still worth having treatment at DDB Physiotherapy ?

A large number of our clients have previously had treatment which has not been fully successful. Our approach focuses on treating the causes of the condition and the restoration of normal biomechanics. Experience has taught us that the body has tremendous healing potential, and that once mechanical over-strain is reduced the tissues will begin to heal.
