What to expect during your first visit:

Your initial physiotherapy assessment will last one hour. During your assessment your physiotherapist will take a medical history and ask you questions about the problems you are experiencing. They will then do a full physical assessment of you.

Following assessment they will provide you with a diagnosis. If your problem is something that physiotherapy can help with you will receive immediate treatment. Your physiotherapist will also provide you with advise about what you can do following the session to help expedite your recovery and recommend what course of physiotherapy treatment would be most appropriate for you.

If you have a problem which requires further investigation I can refer you onwards for x-rays, MRI, ultrasound scans as appropriate.
