What happens when I see a Physiotherapist?
On your first appointment a case history will be taken, and a physical assessment performed. As part of the physical examination, you may be asked to remove some outer clothing and do a few simple movements. This will provide an overall impression of your posture and build and highlight areas of stiffness and pain. After a thorough assessment, the Physiotherapist will explain what he or she believes to be causing your symptoms and will proceed to your first treatment. Problems that have been going on for several months or years are likely to need a series of treatments over several weeks, whereas those which have just developed can often be resolved within a few sessions.
