What to expect from Physiotherapy:
At your initial consultation time is spent asking you about the history of your condition. An examination of the area will follow.
Once a diagnosis is made, the injury will be explained to you thoroughly and you will be given
an informed choice as to your treatment options.
Treatment involves one to one time with “hands on” therapy involving massage or
mobilisation and mechanical therapy where appropriate. Rehabilitation and exercise
equipment is available at the practice.
Christine prescribes exercises with an emphasis on Core Stability. Advice is given for home management of your condition.
Treatment is usually painless with the goal of treatment being maximum pain relief, return to pre-injury movement and strength.
Referral from a Doctor is not essential to obtain physiotherapy. We work closely with medical specialists, general practitioners, podiatrists, dentists and a number of other professionals.
