Physiotherapy is a form of treatment which combines the use of manual therapy, soft tissue mobilisation and exercise to promote recovery from musculoskeletal injury or dysfunction, which might be causing pain or discomfort.
At the initial assessment we will need to ask you detailed questions about your problem, possible related injuries, relevant medical history and gain an understanding of your work and recreational activities. This will be followed by a thorough examination of the problem area and any related areas.
About our treatment sessions
We allow 45 minutes for the initial assessment and each follow up treatment.
At the end of the assessment we explain our findings and give a diagnosis or possible cause for the symptoms presented. We discuss treatment options and give advice on self management strategies which, if appropriate, will include exercises to promote recovery. Whenever possible, treatment is initiated during the first appointment but this is dependent on the complexity of the case and the time taken for a full examination.
Exercise programmes can be emailed to you to enable you to accurately remember and perform them at home and on the go.
