Appointment availability…We have early morning, evening and weekend appointments available. We don’t make all of our appointment slots available on the online booking system, so don’t worry if you can’t see a suitable time, just give us a call or drop us an email and we will do our best to accommodate you at a time to suit you.
Our Physios… All of our physiotherapists are registered with the HPC and are members of the CSP. Visit our team page to find out more about our physios.
Assessment… The first time you visit us we will carry out a full assessment as well as providing some treatment if we feel it is appropriate. The assessment appointment will be 40 minutes and any follow-up appointments booked will be for 30 minutes. During the assessment the physiotherapist will need to assess the part of your body that you are experiencing problems with so ensure you wear appropriate clothing. They will look at things such as the range of movement you have, the extent of the pain you are experiencing, whether other areas of your body are affecting the pain. After assessing you they will discuss a treatment plan with you.
Treatment…Treatment provided by our physiotherapists can include deep tissue massage, joint manipulation, exercise programmes, stretching, conditioning, acupuncture.

Private Health Insurance… Private Health Insurance… CMK Therapy is recognised by the most private health insurance companies for physiotherapy treatment.
As required by a majority of insurance companies all of our Physiotherapists are registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) and The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
Prior to treatment…Prior to treatment…To save you the need for paying out fees in advance and filling in claim forms, in most cases of pre-authorised treatment we can claim the cost of your treatment directly from your insurer for you. You will need to gain pre-authorisation for treatment from your insurer to allow the cost of treatment to be claimed back and in most cases this will require a referral from either your GP or Consultant for the treatment. Policies vary widely in the amount of treatment they will authorise, so prior to contacting us for treatment, you should contact your insurance company to confirm your individual policy terms and to receive pre-authorisation for treatment. If you wish for us to invoice the insurance company directly you must bring all your insurance details with you to your first appointment.
