What should I expect from my first physiotherapy appointment?
The initial physiotherapy appointment will last between 45-60minutes. During this time, your physiotherapist will find out detailed information about your current condition, your occupation and lifestyle, and any relevant medical history.
Following a thorough examination, you will be given a detailed explanation about your condition and what treatments are likely to benefit you. Your physiotherapist will begin treatment during this session.
What should I wear?
If you are seeing us for a lower limb or a back problem, it is advisable you bring a pair of shorts or wear loose fitting trousers that can be rolled up above the knee.If you have a neck or a shoulder problem, ladies may be requested to undress down to their bra, but if you feel more comfortable, a vest top can be worn.
