"The Physio service offered is excellent. Angela has been excellent supporting me with my back and joint problems."
An initial assessment involves a thorough examination of your problem. You will be asked about your pain, general health and relevant past medical history. After this there will be a physical examination so that we can establish the cause of your pain. Treatment may be included within the assessment and you will be given some home exercises to help you manage the problem yourself.
Follow Up Sessions
Further treatment sessions may be necessary depending on your problem. This may be in the form of manual therapy, exercise therapy or a combination of both. A home exercise program is usually an integral part of the treatment.
