Frequently Asked Questions
From your very first visit to our practice, we can assist you with the most important aspects of the therapy you need, offering continuous advice and support as well as individual programmes for you to follow at home.
Q: What does a physiotherapist do?
A: A physiotherapist works with people who have developed a medical condition through injury, illness or age. Our aim is to help you reach your maximum ability by providing a diagnostic assessment, addressing the effect and then working with you with a structured treatment and rehabilitation plan.
Q: What happens at my first appointment?
A: Your first appointment will be relaxed, confidential and private. The therapist will assess you by taking subjective information, these will be questions to help the physiotherapist diagnose your injury and from a safety aspect make sure there is anything he or she needs to be aware of. We will discuss your past medical history, your present condition and general information such as what medication are you taking and any other medical conditions that you might have. You will then have an objective assessment where the therapist will do a physical assessment related to your injury / condition.
