What To Expect From Your Physio Appointment?

Physiotherapists treat the musculoskeletal systems and are often recommended by GPs because of their ability to decrease pain and stiffness. Physiotherapists can serve people with many conditions. We can work together if something seems ‘off’ or needs improvement.

The initial consultation includes a detailed assessment, diagnosis and treatment. This takes into consideration your medical history as well as relevant symptoms. There will no single treatment plan that is the same for every patient, regardless of whether they have the same conditions. There are many treatment options available and your physiotherapist should talk with you about them before you start treatment.

Your physiotherapist must develop treatment and management strategies that suit your condition and goals. It doesn’t matter if you have a sore knee or headaches. Your treatment will be tailored to you and what you expect from physiotherapy.

Physiotherapists employ a variety of techniques, such as joint mobilisation, manipulation, trigger point relief, manual therapy and dry needling. They may also recommend active treatment such as electrotherapy, taping, hydrotherapy, and clinical Pilates. No matter what your physiotherapist recommends, they have done extensive research and believe the recommended treatment will be the best for you.
