Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries Clinic
Physiotherapy - What to Expect
At your initial consultation, your physiotherapist will start by taking a detailed history about your problem. They will also ask a number of questions about your medical history to allow us to tailor treatment appropriately. If you are taking any medication, it may be worthwhile bringing a list with you. They will then carry out an examination. Depending on the area of pain, you may wish to bring shorts or a vest top. This examination may include assessing your posture, movements and strength as well as testing specific structures such as tendons and ligaments. From the information gained in both parts of your assessment, your physiotherapist will explain their clinical diagnosis and options for treatment.
You are more than welcome to bring a chaperone with you for any appointments.
