The aim of this treatment is to restore the tissues to normal or improved function. The session will be based around the specific problem presented with any related issues addressed in the process.

Patients can expect a comfortable treatment, which holds the patients wishes at its centre. The patient will always need to give consent for the type of treatment given, therefore allowing the patient ‘shared decision making’ for the session. An explanation of what is suggested will be given prior to the treatment.

Elizabeth will always check the case history and if there are any changes since you’re last visit. Pre-treatment testing and post treatment rehabilitation advice can be expected with every session.

Elizabeth is extremely passionate in her work and loves to receive feedback from her patients.
