YOUR PHYSIOTHERAPY or SPORTS THERAPY INITIAL ASSESSMENT
For all self-funding and private health care referrals please allow up to 30 minutes for your initial assessment. During this appointment a thorough history of your symptoms will be taken, followed by a detailed physical examination of the affected area, including carrying out any special tests which may be indicated. Your physiotherapist will then explain their clinical impression of your injury and advise you of the most appropriate treatment plan.
You will also receive your first treatment in this time. Treatment is likely to include a mixture of "hands on" techniques (such as soft tissue release, joint mobilisation and electrotherapy) and home exercises - specifically chosen to compliment the treatment received during sessions and to promote your rehabilitation. Your therapist will happily answer any questions you may have during this assessment.
PHYSIOTHERAPY or SPORTS THERAPY FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS
For follow up sessions please allow up to 30 minutes.
At each follow up session you will have a re-assessment, to ascertain progress made. Your treatment program and home exercises will be altered accordingly, and treatment during your session is again likely to be a combination of techniques, such as those outline previously. Your therapist will happily clarify any details for you, or answer questions throughout this session.
