During your initial visit, the physiotherapist will take a detailed history on your specific issues, including a pain questionnaire, information on your current medical status and previous medical history. We will then look at the physical demands of your job/role, discuss your level of activity and exercise outside of your job, as well as other external factors.
Our physiotherapists will also find out what your treatment/health goals are. At the end of this spoken assessment, the therapist will plan for a gentle, physical assessment and create a bespoke treatment programme for you. In some cases the physical assessment and treatment will begin in the first session.
We offer musculoskeletal physiotherapy treatment, including treatment for spinal pain, rehabilitation for trauma injuries and sports injuries. We also specialise in work-related pain and pathology as well as chronic pain management.
Our approach helps in that a diagnosis is given where possible. In all cases, concerns are identified and a tailored programme will be created to address those problems. Treatment types are based on the best research evidence available coupled with the physiotherapist’s two decades of experience.
Treatment is aimed at pain relief and modifying the body with the application of controlled stresses and strains or rehabilitation. Your entire health status is taken into consideration by our physiotherapists with education, information and referral on provided for a range of issues. The chronic pain management programme still involves rehabilitation but the approach is based on a unique bio- psychosocial model, which takes into the consideration the effect of the pain on the patient’s psyche and their social interactions.
