Book a Physiotherapy appointment in Hackney
What is it?
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that views good, pain-free movement as central to health and well-being. People will often see a physio when they’re in pain. It can originate from many things; joints, muscles, ligaments or discs in the back to name a few.
What differentiates Physio & Pilates Central is that removing the pain is only part of a successful treatment.
We identify the source of the pain along with the reason why the pain happened – then we look at the quickest way of relieving the pain while preventing recurrence.
If you’ve experienced pain for more than a few days we’d recommend booking an appointment. In Hackney we offer a wide range of physiotherapy services, all of which can be tailored to meet your needs.
Whether you’re training for a marathon or struggling with back-pain at work, our expert physiotherapists can help identify the cause of the problem and put together a plan to help.

If you’re suffering from pain:
If you have been referred by your GP or a hospital consultant please bring your referral letter. We will also need your medical insurance details and authorisation number if you are not self-funding your treatment. Your physiotherapist will also need to see any x-ray or scan results relating to your injury or condition.
Your initial consultation and treatment will consist of a discussion about your main problems and symptoms. The physio will then examine the affected area and often the surrounding areas too. You may be asked to run or walk to allow the physio to see you move. The physio will then draw up a treatment plan consisting of hands-on treatment such as soft tissue release techniques, mobilisations, manipulations and western acupuncture. You will also be given an individually tailored rehabilitation programme for you to follow at home, normally just a few simple exercises. Hands on treatment usually starts within the first session to ensure you notice improvement from day 1.
Loose comfortable clothes which are easy to move in are best. You may be asked to remove some items of clothing for examination or treatment. We do keep shorts in all our clinics but some people like to take their own.
This can vary considerably depending on the severity of the condition, how long it has been present and your requirements e.g. are you aiming to simply get the pain to a manageable level, or do you want to fully resolve the problem and return to sport? This will be discussed with your physio to ensure your own personal goals are met
