What to Expect
Your First Visit
Your first session will take up to 45 minutes. We will ask you in detail about how the problem started, where you feel your symptoms, what makes them better and what makes them worse. The better you know your problem the easier it is to help you!
For the examination it is a good idea to wear comfortable loose fitting clothing. We will take a look at the area involved, maintaining your modesty at all times, and tell you what we think is going on and what management we think will be needed.
We will explain why you are getting the problem in the first place, often using models or diagrams of the joints or muscles involved. This will allow you to have a clear idea about what is going on and how the treatment will work. This is, in some ways, the most important bit of the first session, so ask as many questions as you like! We will discuss a treatment plan with you, including what techniques we might use, how long it might be expected to take to get better and what you can do at home to treat yourself.
The first session will also involve actually treating the problem as well. You will be leaving with an initial diagnosis, a treatment plan and a tailor made home exercise programme.
We will tell you how many sessions you need and book these with you. Our aim is to get you better as quickly as possible so that you can return to your normal lifestyle again.
