Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a referral from a doctor?

Is Alex Bowles a registered Physiotherapist?
Yes. Alex is registered with both the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
Will I just be given exercises?
In clinic, Alex is a 'hands-on' physio and uses lots of different therapeutic techniques to aid recovery. Exercises may be recommended to compliment the recovery, but rarely prescribed without any manual treatment.
What should I wear to my appointment?
It is very common for patients to wear just underwear garments during assessment and treatment. However, it is important you feel comfortable. Shorts (for lower limb) or a loose vest (for upper limb) treatment may be worn. Alex will always ensure you are comfortable and that modesty is maintained.

This will be discussed following a thorough assessment of your problem. On average, most patients require between 3-6 treatment sessions.
How do I book an appointment?
Simply email, WhatsApp, text or call Alex.
Do you work with insurance companies?
Alex has chosen to work with WPA, Cigna and AVIVA. Please mention this when booking and ensure approval is gained from the relevant insurer prior to booking.
