What to Expect During Your Physio Appointment?

Physiotherapists treat the musculoskeletal systems and are often recommended by GPs because of their ability to decrease pain and stiffness. People with various conditions may also be treated by physiotherapists. They aim to improve their mobility and aid them to live a better life. If you have any concerns or feel like something isn’t right, we are the team for you!

Initial consultations include a comprehensive assessment, informed diagnosis and treatment. This includes taking into account your medical history and relevant symptoms. Even if the patient has the same condition, no two treatment plans will be created the same. This goes to show that physiotherapy is all about you. Your treatment options are diverse and your physiotherapist should discuss them with you before you begin treatment.

Your physiotherapist should create bespoke treatment and management plans that are suitable to your needs after working together on the problems that you have. Whether that’s a sore knee, headaches, arthritis, or a sports injury, your treatment is centred around you and what you hope to get out of physiotherapy.

A variety of techniques are used by physiotherapists, including joint mobilisation and manipulation, muscle and myofascial releases, trigger point release and manual therapy. Dry needling and exercise therapy are also some of the options. They might also recommend active therapies such as orthotics, taping and hydrotherapy, rebalancing exercises, clinical Pilates or electrotherapy. Whatever your physiotherapist suggests for you, they’ve considered it carefully and wholly believe that the treatment/s they’ve selected have the best chance of supporting you reach your goals.
