Your Consultation & Assessment
We deliver effective private treatment taking
account of our patients’ needs and expectations.
At your first visit we will assess your problem. You
will be asked specific questions followed by a
comprehensive physical examination which will enable us
to make a diagnosis.
The physiotherapist will give you a
detailed explanation of their findings and the proposed
treatment plan, which will then be discussed with you
for your agreement.
During the assessment you will be expected to undress
as appropriate to facilitate the examination and enable
the physiotherapist to make or confirm the diagnosis.
For example, with shoulder conditions you will usually
need to uncover your upper body, and so may prefer to
wear a "strappy" top. Low back pain problems may require
you to undress to your underwear and so you may wish to
bring a pair of shorts to wear. Patients may choose to
be accompanied during treatment.
The initial consultation will usually include some
form of treatment. The treatment plan may require
further treatment in our clinic or you may be taught
customised exercises to aid your recovery and prevent
recurrence of your condition.
