Flex was established by two of the leading physiotherapists in the South East. All of our physios are highly trained experts in their field and have published in research journals and/or text books. We lecture both nationally and internationally.

As a team we provide expert knowledge, diagnosis and treatment. We pride ourselves in providing high quality evidence based physiotherapy. Our typical client base varies from those with simple aches and pains, through to the recreational ‘weekend warrior’, to the elite athlete. We provide treatment for a wide range of conditions from whiplash and back pain, to sports injuries, joint pains and overuse injuries. Flex offers a wide range of hands-on and one-to-one physiotherapy treatments including: joint or spinal manipulation, post-operative rehabilitation, exercise, massage and acupuncture.

We are experienced at managing patients who have not responded to previous treatments including physiotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathy and we are happy to offer a specialist second opinion.  We have close links with local GPs as well as local Orthopaedic, Rheumatology, Neurosurgery and Pain Management consultants. We work closely with the Spring Orthopaedic Group in Brighton and Hove, Horder Health and also consultants at Gatwick Park and Goring Hall Hospitals.

If you are in pain and unsure whether you need to see a physiotherapist then contact us today and we’ll be happy to offer advice and let you know whether we think we’ll be able to help. If you are in pain and do not yet have a diagnosis then book an appointment to see us today. You can self-refer and do not need a referral from your doctor. We are registered with all the major insurance providers.

Physio Treatment

Initial Physiotherapy Consultation

At your initial physio consultation, one of our experienced team will fully assess you by taking the time to talk through your problem and perform a physical examination to examine the relevant joint, muscle and nerve structures to provide you with a diagnosis. We will then discuss with you the likely causes of your pain and the treatment approach which we feel is most appropriate. We will also address factors which may be contributing to your problem such as your posture or abnormal movement patterns. In most cases we will begin treatment during the initial consultation. Please contact us with any questions you may have or to arrange an appointment.

Follow-Up Physio Consultation

Treatment will vary depending on your condition. This may include joint manipulation or mobilisation, soft tissue techniques, nerve mobilisation and acupuncture. We will provide you with specific exercises and advice to help you return to full fitness.  We normally would expect significant improvement within 3-4 session of treatment.  If the condition is not improving as we would expect, we will have an honest conversation as to why that may be.  We will not continue to treat if it is not helping and if necessary we may liaise with you doctor and suggest further investigations or an onward referral.

Charges:

Initial Consultation – £45.00
Follow up Consultation – £45.00
(Payment made on the day should be by cash or cheque please.)
