Are you considering physiotherapy for an underlying ache or chronic pain? Perhaps you have been recommended regular physio by a doctor or even a friend or family member, or perhaps you’re motivated by your own research.

Whatever the case, once you know you want to contact and book a session with a physiotherapist, you will want to find the best.

And that’s where Faye Pattison comes in – delivering leading physiotherapy in Essex for clients with a whole host of aches and pains (as well as those who simply like the relaxation benefits of a deep tissue massage)!

But rather than simply heralding the benefits of our in-house team, we thought we’d create a list of things to look for in a good physiotherapist – wherever in the world you may be!

1. They are members of the CSP

Perhaps the easiest thing to find out is whether or not your potential physiotherapist is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).

This is a group of approved and regulated physiotherapists who have met certain criteria to become listed as official CSP organisations – and is a great way of instantly determining whether or not your chosen physiotherapist is operating within industry standards.

Especially when it comes to treatments like acupuncture, deeper massage and other treatments, you want to ensure that your body is being treated safely and effectively.

2. They offer bespoke treatment plans rather than set packages

This is a big one for us at Faye Pattison. So often we see physiotherapists that offer packages of treatment plans and massage sessions – with limited flexibility according to the client’s specific needs and issues.

One of the hallmarks of a good physiotherapist is a desire to create a bespoke treatment plan that will support you and help to address the issues raised at your initial consultation. This could be fewer or more sessions than originally advised, as well as a programme of exercises and stretches to try at home.

3. They work alongside other medical specialists

Thirdly, a good physiotherapist will build their programme alongside the advice of doctors, consultants, orthopaedics, and other medical professionals to ensure that every potential base is covered with regard to safety and both physical and mental health.

As part of our commitment to clients, not only do you benefit from our extensive expertise in the industry and training, but you can rest assured that every treatment we offer has been finessed under the guidance of trained professionals and experts. In addition, we regularly train staff to ensure that we are all operating at the highest possible level and offer regular check-ins and discussions as part of each session to track how you are getting on with your programme.

Suffice it to say, a good physiotherapist doesn’t just complete each scheduled session – they go above and beyond to ensure that every client feels safe and supported. Find out more about our approach at Faye Pattison, or book an initial consultation, via our contact details.
