Assessment, Diagnosis, treatment, Aids advise
On your first appointment, your physiotherapist will discuss your physical and functional problems with you and will want to know how they affect your everyday life. They will also need to know about any previous/current medical problems that may be affecting you and will ask you for a list of medications you are currently taking.
With your consent , they will carry out a full physical examination looking at your movements, muscle strength and posture .
From the assessment, the Physiotherapist will then explain their findings and aim to make a diagnosis of your problems. They will provide advice , demonstrate exercises you can practice and formulate a treatment plan working towards your goals of recovery.
