Frequently Asked Questions

Physiotherapists are specialists in the assessment, diagnosis and rehabilitation of pain, disease or injuries. We love helping people improve their health and wellbeing, returning to sport, daily function or a new specific goal. 

Specifically at Moko Physiotherapy, we specialise in musculoskeletal physiotherapy, which is the most well known area of physiotherapy. There are also neurological and cardiorespiratory specialisms. We may be able to help in these other areas, as some of our team have prior experience in these other areas. 

Physiotherapy treatment may involve exercise, rehabilitation, stretching, strengthening, balance, massage, taping or hands on. Treatment varies depending on your individual problem. Currently we do not offer shockwave therapy or ultrasound. 

No, physiotherapists are not medical doctors, although some physiotherapists may choose to undertake a PHD which is a high level qualification that enables them to call themselves a Doctor of Physiotherapy. However, this is not the same as a medical doctor.

The physiotherapy degree is usually a 3 year course to qualify as a physiotherapist and register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You must be registered with the HCPC to call yourself a physiotherapist. 

Loose clothing is useful (rather than jeans for  example). Ideally we need to see the area so if you have knee pain then please wear shorts. For ladies if you have a shoulder or neck problem, please wear a vest top. If the physio cannot see the area, you may be asked to undress to your underwear, but this is only if you feel comfortable in doing so. You may bring a friend / family with you to act as a chaperone if you would prefer. 

Every individual has specific needs.
All new physiotherapy patients are required to have an assessment (45 minutes) and results session (45 minutes). Routinely we would do the assessment and results sessions in the same week. 

Follow ups typically last 40 minutes.
The rehabilitation classes, yoga and pilates classes are either 45 or 60 minutes.
Sports or therapeutic massage can either be booked for 60, 45 or 30 minute appointments.
The educational workshops are 90 minutes.

Yes, physiotherapy is a great treatment for arthritis. This may include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or inflammatory conditions such as psoriatic arthritis. Treatment is likely to include rehabilitation to work on the movement and strength in the surrounding muscles which support the affected joint.

Yes, physiotherapy is very successful in treating sciatica. This may involve bespoke stretching, referral to massage and then graded rehabilitation to prevent the sciatica returning. It is normal for sciatica to take 3 months to settle. 

Yes, physiotherapy treatment often helps neck pain. This may involve bespoke stretching, referral to massage and then graded rehabilitation to prevent the neck pain returning.

Yes, the most common condition that we see at physiotherapy is back pain. We have great success in helping individuals recover quickly and then prevent the pain returning again in the future. Treatment may involve bespoke stretching, hands on, referral to massage and then graded strengthening to prevent the neck pain returning.

It is very easy to self refer to physiotherapy.

A new patient physiotherapy assessment is £59
Results session (including report from the assessment and treatment) £59 
Weekly follow ups are £59 per session (block of 4 used within 1 month)
Adhoc follow ups are £65 per session

If you are in pain or unable to do the activities you would like to, a physiotherapist will help you reduce pain and achieve your goals. The benefits of private physiotherapy include;

  • fast access to a specialist
  • regular follow up sessions
  • longer appointment times compared to the NHS
  • quick recovery and improvements in pain 
  • bespoke treatment, tailored to you and your needs
  • supervised rehabilitation

Mike Noble


Mike supports Moko Physiotherapy and our clients with Specialist Nutrition Advice. He offers 1:1 support, nutritional plans and educational talks at Moko Physiotherapy.

Starting out as a personal trainer in 2015, Mike’s career has always been geared towards connecting with people and helping them understand how they can better their health. He studied nutrition in 2019 and from there his mission was clear: to empower people to live their best lives through the power of food and fitness.

Since then, he’s been amazed at the difference a natural approach to food and lifestyle can make, helping people increase their energy, cure their skin condition and even fall pregnant.

Mike works with clients struggling with conditions from PCOS and menopause to chronic stress or IBD, who feel they have tried everything, but achieved nothing. Whatever it is you’re struggling with, Mike can work with you to help you get the results you need, all through simple lifestyle changes.

Mike is happy to see you for nutritional support in house at Moko Physiotherapy, online or also offers personal training from his private 1:1 studio in Chester Green.

How does the process work?

1) Discovery call:

You’ll start with an initial chat to find out where you’re at currently, what you want to achieve and how Mike can support you.

Step 2) Send out health questionnaire

When you decide to go ahead, you’ll receive an in depth health questionnaire to find out everything Mike needs to know.

Step 3) Create your personalised plan

Once Mike has a full picture of your health and current situation, he’ll start working on your personalised wellness plan.

What’s included in the personalised wellness plan?

– Summary of your current health/ condition
– Written justifications for all foods & supplements included in your plan
– Full 7 day meal plan
– Recipes
– Shopping lists
– Nutritional information (kcals/fats/protein/ vitamins & minerals)
– Supplement recommendations

Step 4) Get Started

You’ll start the first few weeks of your wellness plan, before a 1:1 catch up again to see how you’re getting on.

At this point, Mike will make some changes and then catch up again in another few weeks. By the third session, we’d expect to be seeing some positive changes.
