Or so it appears from reading the Google reviews of the sports clinics in my area. They all appear to cost around the same - and they all, without exception, seem to have glowing reviews.
I guess I should just go with the one that's in the most convenient location for me?
Talking myself around to a private physio as I'm feeling there might be a bit of a wait for access to an NHS one, and the private running clinics must deal with running injuries all of the time, so should be steeped in the necessary expertise.
Any reputable physio will check you out and let you know whether you need long term physio or not so you can judge whether to continue paying or wait for nhs. I've used both nhs and private, the difference I've found is that you can see private quicker and they tend to work with you to get back to the activity quickly whereas nhs have given me exercise to do for a month before revisiting so rehab can take months. Good luck, trust your instincts and don't feel bad at asking lots of questions and get exercises written down.
Thanks very much, gtb, for sharing with me your insight gained through your own experience. Really excellent and invaluable to me!
Hope you get what you need.
