PHYSIO CONSULTATION PROCESS
Physio Consultation Process
You can book your physio services treatment online.
Your initial consultation will include a full written case history, including your general health, any hereditary conditions, medication taken, past and current fitness levels, previous injuries/operations/illnesses and the reason for attending.
Reasons include treatment of an injury, injury prevention, maximisation of rest and recovery from training or to improve flexibility and reduce tension. It's important to establish why you're attending and what you're hoping to achieve, during this first session.
A physical assessment will then follow and include both active and passive movements, in order to ascertain the state of injury, restriction or muscular-skeletal disorder. Please wear loose-fitting clothes, shorts (and bra for women) and bring any relevant footwear (eg. running/tennis shoes).
Diagnosis & Treatment Plan
On the basis of both the consultation and physical assessment, I’ll then be able to provide a diagnosis and propose a treatment plan. This will include the treatment techniques to be used, why and to what effect. Objectives and outcomes for the treatment will be discussed and agreed by both of us prior to any treatment commencing.
Should treatment not be appropriate for any reason, I will explain this and refer you to the relevant practitioner.
I'll also advise on the likely number of treatment sessions needed, explain any rehabilitation exercises, as well as the process of injury recovery or performance optimisation. It's important that you understand all aspects of your treatment plan and are happy to proceed, so I welcome any questions during your treatment. Follow-up appointments, if necessary, can be arranged at the time of your initial treatment or at a time to suit you.
