Physiotherapy is a registered healthcare profession concerned with the restoration of the normal movement and function of the human body. It can be used in isolation or alongside other medical and complimentary management to aid the recovery process.
At your first visit your Physiotherapist will in confidence take a detailed history of your presenting condition, including your past medical history and any medication you may be taking. With your consent this allows your Physiotherapist to:
Perform the necessary tests to identify any problem areas and biomechanical imbalances which will formulate the basis of your diagnosis & treatment plan
Assess and identify any pre-disposing factors such as poor postural alignment which can help reduce the risk of the same or similar injury happening again.
Discuss with you the most relevant treatment plan, and ascertain your short and long term goals in order to maximise your personal rehabilitation and recovery
Provide you with excellent one-to-one treatment, rehabilitation and advice based on current evidence and best practise.
In order for us to be able to do this it is necessary and appropriate for you to wear clothing which allows your physiotherapist to visualise the area, such as shorts for back and lower limb problems, cropped tops for neck and shoulder problems and loose clothing and trainers/ supportive footwear for rehabilitation sessions.
