What to expect at your first appointment
Your first Physiotherapy appointment will be about 30 minutes long. During this time Dom will discuss with you your medical history in relation to this pain or injury as well as other relevant information such as daily routines like office work or sports, which may be contributing to your pain. Dom can then assess your injury or pain via movement based tests to confirm what may be the cause of your pain.
These tests may include orthopaedic testing, a spinal examination, postural assessment, muscle testing, and neurological testing. During this initial assessment patients will typically receive treatment unless it’s un-safe to do so.
Return and ongoing visits are usually 30 minutes long and offer treatment & periodic comparative assessments to work towards your goals.
