As a physiotherapist I aim to understand and address the causes of your issue. Listening to your story and carrying out a physical assessment, gives me clues about your condition. This includes range of movement, neurological testing, strength and endurance test.
From here, a working diagnosis will be developed. A physiotherapy plan will be put in place to allow you to get back to your normal activity pain free. This plan may include short term activity modification, education relating to your condition/injury and a home exercise program. Your physiotherapy program will be emailed to you. A video clip of all your exercises, reps, sets and how often to do them will be included. These helps with compliance and ensures you are doing your exercises correctly.
What To Expect On Your First Physiotherapy Visit
Your first physiotherapy visit will consist of a detailed discussion of your presenting complaint. Previous issues/injuries are also discussed. We will delve into any aggravating or alleviating activities. This will highlight the possible cause of the problem. From there we will discuss possible treatment options, recovery times and methods to help you manage your pain while at home.
