Frequently Asked Questions

How long are your consultations?
Due to the focus on detailed history and full musculoskeletal and postural assessment our consultations are longer than most practices with treatment times ranging from 15-60 minutes. The focus on rehabilitation also means that some patients have follow up consultations consisting of personalised exercise instruction and not just treatment.

Is your clinic suitable for people not in pain?
Absolutely. Our clinic focus on posture and functional assessment means that we are ideally suited to assessment of body balance and co-ordination in both athletes and those who would simply like to improve their posture and musculoskeletal performance. Leon has particular interest in dealing with tennis players, road and mountain cyclists, weight lifters, gym and CrossFit participants, swimmers, runners and golfers.
