During your first visit, the Physiotherapist will ask you to complete a detailed health screen questionnaire - to understand your past medical history, any recent traumas, medical requirements and additional conditions you may have. They will also ask questions regarding the current issue, to try and understand what you are experiencing. Following this, a physical assessment will be carried out. This aims to look at everything from general posture, to specific joint ranges and muscle strength. This will be tailored to your individual problem. In the first session, we always aim to carry out some treatment to begin the rehabilitation process. Following this, specific exercises and advice will be given for you to take away. A clear explanation of your problem will also be given.
