Direct accessibility
Nowadays you can visit an exercise therapist Mensendieck without referral from a GP. Prior to the start of the treatment, a 10-minute screening takes place. By means of a short interview, the exercise therapist assesses whether they can provide you with the right care. In other words, the therapist assesses whether your request for help can be met. Should this not be the case, then the therapist will refer you to other care givers. The therapist will also determine whether your symptoms fit in a clearly recognisable pattern. If this is not clear to the therapist, then you will be advised to contact your GP.
