What happens in an assessment?
The Physiotherapist will ask you to fill in a registration form detailing any medication or illness. You will also be asked to sign a consent form for treatment.
The physiotherapist will conduct an interview style of questioning to find out about your pain and any objectives and goals you may have for treatment.
The physiotherapist will then assess the area of body that is injured or in pain and the surrounding joints and muscles.
You will then be given a diagnosis of your problem and the Physiotherapist will talk you through a treatment plan.
You will the be given some treatment and advise for self managing the pain, home exercises may also be prescribed in this session.
