At St Leonards Physiotherapy, we make sure that we are dealing with all aspects of your musculoskeletal problems. This means that we often assess and make adjustments to patient’s workstation to ensure optimal set-up. For patients whose office is in the local area, this service is included in the consultation fee (i.e. it is a COMPLIMENTARY SERVICE).
