On arrival at the Chiltern Surgery the reception staff will direct you to the treatment room upstairs (lift available). You will find a small waiting area outside this room where you can relax and Nerys will come out and get you at the time of your appointment. At your first session Nerys will start by asking you some questions about your symptoms which will help her identify the problem. You may then be asked to remove certain items of clothing to expose the affected area (you may want to bring shorts) and Nerys will perform a physical assessment including functional tests and a thorough examination of the affected area. She will then suggest a treatment plan, discuss it with you and proceed with your consent.

Nerys qualified from Kings College London in 1999 and since then has worked in many different settings as a physiotherapist in both the NHS and private practice. She has continually developed her practice through a multitude of post graduate training courses and continues to be passionate about providing the best quality care available.

Nerys no longer works directly with private health insurance providers. If you would like your treatment to be covered by insurance Nerys can give you a detailed receipt which will, in most cases, enable you to reclaim the costs from your insurance company. You may wish to discuss this with your insurer before you start treatment to check if you can reclaim the costs.
