What To Expect
What to expect
Prior to your initial consultation we will ask you to complete an online form about your condition and medical history, this helps the therapist understand your problems prior to your appointment.
During your consultation we will discuss your current health history and other pertinent information that may be related to your presenting complaint.
After this consultation you will undergo an examination that includes neurological, orthopaedic and postural evaluation. This can be done wearing preferably loose clothing or you might be asked to undress and use an examination gown, gowns and changing rooms are available. If it were decided that further investigation is required such as x-rays or blood tests this would be acquired by referral back to your GP (with your consent) or by utilising private services depending on your individual situation.
Findings from your examination will be discussed with you and your options for care will be recommended and explained. With your consent treatment will be started at this initial consultation appointment.
The Three Phases of Care
Healing takes time but you may start to feel some relief of your symptoms within a few visits. During this first phase of care continuing with appointments, even if the pain reduces, is important to keep your body in the best position to repair itself.
