Getting to see a physiotherapist after a referral from your doctor is unlikely to be a particularly speedy process. The first step is likely to be a phone consultation, often around two weeks after your visit to your GP, after which the caller will no doubt send information and exercises for you to try, before leaving it another four weeks until they get back in touch. From here, once they have established that you do indeed need to see a physiotherapist, the average waiting time will be at least ten weeks, making it an average of sixteen weeks between you seeing your doctor and you actually getting to see a physio.
In this time, a lot can happen, and much of the initial time you spend with a physio will then be spent correcting the fact that problems are likely to have got worse during the interim. As such, problems can not only be far worse that they should be once you see a physio, but in turn it is likely to take even longer for you to get better.
Therefore, it makes far more sense to book an appointment with a West London physio off your own back. By doing so you can bypass almost all of this waiting time and ensure that you see a physiotherapist as soon as possible, at once reducing the chances of things getting worse and ensuring that you are back to full health in the fastest possible time.
The right Wimbledon physio will have the resources to see you when you need to be seen and as such you can be sure that you have the best chance of not only getting a resolution far quicker, but also that the Wimbledon physio you visit will simply be able to do something about your problem rather than you finding that things have been left too long and that you may never get the resolution you should have had.
