Appointments with Achilles Heal in Harrogate

Appointments

Appointments can be booked by email or by telephone to arrange an appropriate venue for your treatment and care.

You will be sent an email confirming your appointment and a medical history form to complete and return prior to your treatment. If you are completing this with your child, please have a look at the information under Paediatric appointments.

Initial appointments

Initial appointments are 45-60 minutes when a full medical history is taken and an assessment is made of the problem.

Please come with appropriate clothing to allow clear examination of the affected area, e.g. shorts for leg and foot problems, a vest top for shoulder or neck pain. For foot problems do bring frequently used shoes such as trainers and work or school shoes.

Treatment is also offered at this initial consultation and can include a variety of manual techniques, electrotherapy and usually some exercise to assist in the repair of damaged structures.

Helene prides herself on taking the time to ensure patients fully understand their condition, and have the opportunity to ask questions and be fully involved in their treatment, whatever their age. Bring all your questions with you!

Follow up appointments
