What will happen at the first consultation?
At the initial treatment session, the physiotherapist will take a detailed account of the problem, followed by a physical examination in order to make a clinical diagnosis. The most appropriate treatment will be discussed and given at your first appointment. You will be advised on the estimated recovery time and self management for a speedy return to full fitness.
How long is each treatment?
What should I wear?
It is helpful to wear comfortable clothing and underwear. You will normally be asked to remove some of your clothing, down to your underwear if necessary. Towels are provided for modesty and to cover over clothing plus areas of the body not involved in the treatment.
How many treatments will be required?
At the end of the initial consultation, the physiotherapist will be able to give an expectation of the number and frequency of treatments required. This will vary according to the age and condition of the individual.
Do I need a referral from my GP?
