We want to find out the cause of your pain/problem
Interview: we take your history, listen, ask questions, triage and then formulate your physical assessment. The more we know about you the more we can tailor our treatment to you.
Physical assessment: may include moving, your physiotherapist moving you, sensation and nerve tests, palpation (medical touch assessment). This helps us confirm what structures are responsible for your pain.
Treatment: once we know what your pain/problem is, your physiotherapist will best advise how to rehabilitate and manage your pain/problem.
Plan: You may be feeling better after your session but it is often not the end of physiotherapy. Rehabilitation can take time especially if your pain is chronic. You and your physiotherapist will create an individual plan for your rehabilitation.
If you have more than one area of pain then it is suggested that you book 1 hour for the initial assessment.
Often the first session is assessment and pain management. Next is when we check your progress and adapt your treatment for progression.
There will be more time for treatment as the first session would have spent time clinically diagnosing your problem.
As pain subsides there should be less management from your physio and more management by you. Often this will involve home exercises and self management if this was not already discussed in your first session. Further sessions would be aimed at decreasing the chance of the same pain coming back.
As you progress the frequency of visits will decrease as you are given more time to do your independent rehabilitation.
We understand that you may be rushed for time and may not be able to come to our clinic. Ideally we want to reassess face to face but we also offer online consultations for your convenience.
The number of sessions depends on your problem and will be discussed with you by your physiotherapist. Our goal is to discharge you from our care and that you learn enough that you can independently manage whatever is weighing you down
