Your Initial treatment session lasts around 45 – 55 minutes, during this time your physiotherapist will take a detailed account of the problem, followed by a physical examination in order to make a clinical diagnosis. Once diagnosis has been given we ensure we educate our clients on the nature of their problem and how our initial treatment plan works in resolving the cause of their issue. We will also collect objective measures which can be checked throughout treatment to ensure good progress is being made. Although not guaranteed we do always try to give you some treatment in the first assessment, however in more complex cases assessment may take up more of the initial appointment.
By the end of an initial treatment session you should have:
a clear understanding of your issue
a detailed initial treatment plan
an estimated recovery time
some initial changes / exercises
From here on the majority of treatment tends to follow three fluid phases:
For lower limb problems we suggest, for your comfort, that you bring a pair of shorts with you.
We also kindly ask that ladies with a shoulder or neck problem, please bring a strappy vest top.
Massage requires a reasonable amount of undressing, usually down to your underwear, depending on which regions require massage work, as such, we generally advise clients wear a robe, or wrap up in a towel and wear underwear that they feel comfortable in.
We advise clients prepare a towel of two of their own so that we can work with reasonable modesty throughout treatment as well as keeping you warm (expert tip, popping the towel on a radiator prior to our arrival makes for a lovely toasty experience!).
