What to expect from my first visit?
Your first visit will involve health screening and an assessment of your condition. This will allow the therapist to draw up an accurate treatment plan. Any future appointments, if required, will be discussed at the end of the first appointment.
Do I need to bring anything with me on my first visit?
You should bring shorts, t-shirt and training shoes with you for your assessment. This will allow the therapist to conduct a full physical assessment if required. The Podiatrist will also need you to bring a selection of your general footwear so they can analyse any potential discrepancy in your walking.
Will I be able to return to work after my appointment?
Yes you will be able to return to your place of work after your appointment in most cases. If you do a very physically demanding job, it would be best to make an appointment at the end of your working day. There is a chance that you will feel changes in your body or feel tired after your appointment which is perfectly normal and could be part of the healing process.
If you’re booked in for a biomechanical assessment from the podiatrist you’ll be able to resume your daily activities directly afterwards.
How many sessions will I need?
It is impossible to say how many appointments you may need until the therapist has fully assessed your condition. The therapist will keep you informed through every stage of your treatment plan. You can rest assured that you will not be asked to attend appointments if you do not need to.
Sports Therapy £40 (60 mins) / Podiatric Biomechanics £70 (60-90 mins)

Re-scheduling my appointment
We understand that circumstances occur where appointments have to be cancelled. If you need to cancel an appointment please give your therapist as much notice as possible. Please take into consideration that someone else could have had your appointment and that has now been lost. Failure to attend without any notification will result in Glasgow Sports Injury Centre charging the full appointment fee.
