Highly Trained Professionals – Top Quality Treatments

We only employ most experienced highly trained (friendly) Professionals. Helping you feel better quickly and effectively is what we are told we do best. We feel that two heads are always better than one. Therefore any complex patients ( non resolving / complex problems) are often treated by two or more specialists in order that you get better fast and happy. Our moto is don’t just treat your patients but aim to cure, encourage and rehabilitate. We have always worked this way simply because it works better and we all feel happier.

Our Individual expertise

 If a patient is problematic and complex with your permission we will discuss and cross refer you within the practice. This way individual expertise is shared between practitioners to achieve greater long term benefits.  We also support our local community in part  we hope our pricing structure reflects this.  The Hatfield Practice team provides you with genuine hands on professionals (we wont just prescribe exercises or fob you off ). Our experience has shown that  this approach tends to resolve problems faster and more serious conditions are not missed.

The Welwyn and Hatfield Practice – About Us

 We have more than 25 years experience in pain management and patient care. Our main aim is that your treatment experience at the Hatfield Practice is second to none.

 Nearly all of our patients come via recommendation from their family, friends, GPs or consulting specialist We pride ourselves in being effective and we really do care and take time with our patients so they are satisfied and get better quickly.

A recent audit of patients in the Hatfield, Welwyn Garden City and St Albans area showed that over 90% of our patients showed a considerable improvement in their symptoms after three visits here. You will leave our clinic feeling better with a good working diagnosis ( i:e what the problem is ) an idea of how long it will take before you see an improvement and most importantly a good understanding of why the problem happened in the first place.

This is always backed up with good quality educational advice so that the injury is not repeated all over again. Every patient is individually assessed, treated, advised and educated.

We have been told on many occasions that the reason why people return to The Welwyn and Hatfield Practice is because we:

  • Always give good quality, affordable & individual attention.
  • We genuinely care about our patients.
  • We have been told that we are considerate and professional.
  • We care about you, your outcome and experience at The Welwyn & Hatfield Practice.
