FAQ's

What is the difference between osteopathy, chiropractic and physiotherapy?

Generally speaking, osteopaths concentrate on all types of treatment including thrust techniques of spinal joints, stretching, deep tissue massage etc. whereas chiropractors concentrate more on the spinal joints alone. Physiotherapy tends to be more excercise led.

Personal Injury Solicitor/Case Manager FAQs

Do you do 'Expert Report' Writing?

No. Whilst we are experts in terms of our expertise and level of experience, we currently prefer to act in the treating Therapist role, whereby our professional responsibility and duty of care remains firmly with the individual being treated.

What is your experience in dealing with Medico-legal cases?

The Director Nikki Adams has personally acted as the treating Neuro Physiotherapist with more than 80 personal injury claim cases and in so doing, has worked with a range of Personal Injury Solicitors and Case Management firms, large and small, from all around England. She is therefore well-placed to support her Associates in helping them to understand how to work with you and within the system.

Individual / Carers FAQs

My mother has had a stroke, can you do some sessions with her?

That depends! Please ensure she has already had whatever rehabilitation services her local NHS are able to provide her with. Once she has been discharged...

She must have someone who is in daily contact with her, whom we can train up and teach what to do. Your mother will get the best value from our input if she is able to do her prescribed exercises in between our visits. Most people need some help and encouragement to do this and the person needs to be available before we begin.

It may be that she is living in a nursing home or care home environment – in which case please identify who her key worker is and we can ensure we link with them. If she is living in her own home then she will need to find someone who is happy to take on the role of support worker (this could be a friend or family member, but it is often best if it is someone who has been especially designated for the role).
