Our somerset based physiotherapy team diagnose and treat injury and pain by correcting and improving the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. We can assist and help people of all ages and social groups, from the non-competitive to the elite sportsman offering treatments such as joint and soft tissue mobilisations, acupuncture, gait assessment, postural advice, massage, rehabilitation programmes etc. Liz qualified in 2001 and spent a lot of time working for county rugby teams and running a busy trauma and orthopaedic ward. She has been working privately now for 15 years and runs Central Somerset Physiotherapy, working across various clinics in Somerset. Chris graduated in 2008 and branched into the private sector almost immediately. He treats all musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries. Steph has extensive experience in elite sports development alongside veterinary physiotherapy and competing her two horses in eventing!
On your first appointment at Central Somerset Physiotherapy
- At your first appointment, your physiotherapist will take a detailed history of your current problem and will then perform a physical examination to determine the cause. The course of your treatment will be discussed with you.
- Any subsequent appointments will be arranged between you and your physiotherapist. Where possible, this will be at a convenient time for you. If you cannot attend an appointment, please give 24–48 hours’ notice so we can allocate the appointment to another person. If you do not give 24 hours’ notice, then full fees apply.
What should I bring?
- Shorts or a vest—to aid your examination you may need to take off some clothing to allow an accurate assessment, depending on the body part that is being examined. Shorts or a vest top may make you feel more comfortable.
- Any correspondence relating to your current condition such as clinic appointments or letters/ reports regarding previous treatments.
