The initial consultation is a good place to start for all new patients. It will include a full examination and assessment in order to get to the root cause of your pain/injury. This will begin with an in-depth discussion about the nature of your complaint as well as your medical history. A thorough physical assessment will then follow, which usually includes a postural check, as well as strength and functional tests. Once the cause of your problem has been determined, an initial plan of therapy treatment and rehabilitation can be formed.
There will usually be a minimum of 20 minutes treatment on your first visit, following on from the consultation. Going forward, you will be continually re-assessed to ensure that you are moving in the right direction of recovery and that the treatment is suited to your needs.
