Physiotherapy is a discipline involving hands-on treatment of injuries and the prescription of rehabilitation exercises to help people overcome their pain and dysfunction.

Your initial physiotherapy appointment will normally be 30 minutes. In that time you will be asked to explain your injury, how it happened, how long you have had it and how it makes you feel. You will be asked to set some goals about what you want to achieve from your time spent with the therapist. Your therapist will also run through your past medical history finding out about any medical diagnoses or medicine that you take.

Next your therapist will carry out a physical examination looking at the affected area plus carry out an assessment of your posture and how you move. Once they have carried out this assessment they will put together a treatment plan for you.

In the remaining time of your initial assessment and on subsequent treatment sessions they will carry out this treatment plan and also give you home exercises to do to either resolve your problem or to give you a management strategy to keep your symptoms under control.

Your therapist will endeavor to give you an accurate diagnosis and give you realistic expectations of how many treatments you will require. Most problems can be resolved within 4 to 6 treatment sessions. On occasion your therapist may refer you to a consultant for a second opinion to verify the initial diagnosis and treatment plan.

Your therapist may also refer you to other healthcare professionals that they feel would be appropriate to help you. This may include Pilates instructors, massage therapists, nutritionists, women’s health specialists, craniosacral therapists or yoga instructors.

Please note we have a 24 hour cancellation policy. In order to avoid being invoiced for your treatment please give us more than 24 hours notice if you need to change or cancel an appointment.
