Physiotherapy can help in pain relief, healing and rehabilitation after medical and surgical conditions. It treats all acute and chronic musculo-skeletal problems, including all joints, muscles, ligaments and after fractures.
The initial consultation will last up to an hour and will include a verbal history-taking, physical examination and discussion of findings. The physical examination is similar to a conventional medical consultation but with an in-depth look at the musculoskeletal (muscles, ligaments, joints etc) and neuromuscular (nerves, muscles) systems of the body.
If appropriate, a treatment plan will be made and realistic goals set and agreed. Your treatment will then start and you will be seen for treatment at regular intervals.
