We all find it difficult to talk about costs and how much certain treatments will cost. Cost is a large factor for any purchase, especially when you are committing to an ongoing course of physiotherapy to help you.
Reputation rather than cost should be one of the main reasons you have chosen the physiotherapist that you would like to work with, a close second being the travelling time and costs involved to get to the appointment.
Any good physio that you talk to will tell you that referrals is the biggest source of patients to them, self-referrals, GP referrals and consultant referrals. The one common question that gets asked the most is “how much does private physiotherapy cost?”
The answer to this question can vary, for a number of different reasons, but we hope this article will help you understand the costs that can be involved in starting private physiotherapy.
The cost of physiotherapy sessions
The cost of physiotherapy sessions can vary largely, depending on how long your session is, and also dependant on the speciality and experience of the physiotherapist. Having a private physiotherapy appointment in your own home can vary greatly from £50 – £180 for a 1 hour appointment.
There are a number of factors to consider that may affect treatment pricing in general:
- Cost depends if you are attending a clinic or if you are having a home visiting physio. Attending a clinic is certainly cheaper but may not be for everyone.
- Is the physiotherapy taking place in Central London, in the suburbs or outside of London? The location can vary the price. Treatment is more expensive if you are attending a clinic in a prestigious location such as Harley Street, London. We currently provide a home visiting service for London and the South East/ home counties.
- Whether you approach a company that solely provides home visiting appointments, or whether they run clinics. Physio at home tends to be cheaper if the company focuses specifically on providing a home physiotherapy service as they have fewer overheads. This is often but not always the case.
The cost of a course of physiotherapy treatment.
