WHAT TO EXPECT
Your initial Physiotherapy Appointment will involve a lengthy discussion to try and extract all information which may be relevant to the development of your condition. This will include any relevant medical problems.
You will then receive a thorough examination in an effort to determine which structures and areas of your body are not fuctioning appropriately.
You will then be given a detailed explanation of your problem and your diagnosis, the treatment required, the probable number of treatments needed and the likelihood of success.
Your Physiotherapist may then utilise a number of techniques as appropriate. These probably will include hands on treatment. You will always be given advice on self management in order to aid in preventing recurrence of the problem.
What to Wear
It is helpful if you wear comfortable lose fitting clothes. If you are coming with a lower limb or back problems, shorts or trousers that roll up are best.
