What to expect on your first visit


What to expect


Attending any appointment for the first time can be a daunting business. We do everything we can to make your first visit to The Malmesbury Clinic for Physiotherapy as relaxing as possible.

How long does it take?

Your first Physiotherapy appointment will take up to 45 minutes. This leaves enough time to go through any past medical history, find out your aims and objectives, treatment and creating a tailored exercise regime. After your initial 45 minute appointment, Physiotherapy follow-ups will generally last 30 minutes.

What will I be required to do?

Bringing with you any details about past medical history will greatly help the initial consultation process. The Physiotherapist will often ask initial questions such as 'How long have you had the condition?' 'What caused the onset of symptoms?' 'Do you do any hobbies that may have exacerbated the injury?'. The Physiotherapist may ask to do a physical examination of any injuries or affected areas. After collating all of the information available, our Physiotherapist will be capable of tailoring a treatment to suit your specific condition.

Follow-up treatments

Your condition will be monitored closely by our Physiotherapist and the gap between your initial consultation and follow-up will be tailored to you and your condition. You should continue to complete any exercises that they have given you between treatments and as best you can stick to the schedules set out for you by the Physiotherapist. For each follow-up Physiotherapy appointment your routine and exercises will likely be tweaked and changed slightly to as your condition improves.


Meet the team

It is with great regret that we announce that The Malmesbury Healthcare Clinic will be closed until further notice.

Despite us taking every single precaution we can in the past few weeks, we have decided that we really must put our patients first and do our bit to reduce the chance of spreading the Coronavirus.

Apologies to anyone booked in this coming week. We will be in contact with you all individually to talk through options. We will be offering digital consultations and phone advice during this difficult period and will be resuming 121 treatments the moment we feel it is safe to do so.

For more information on our appointment options, please call on 01666 817123 or email on We wish everyone the very best in these tricky times and look forward to seeing each and every one of you when it has passed.
