What happens in a physiotherapy assessment?

HISTORY: I will ask you about your details, including past medical history. This background information gives a better insight and understanding of the under-lying causes of your problem. These background questions are very important, they often take 10-15mins.

ASSESSMENT: I will assess your movement and postures. I often assess whole body movement; Any restricted movement in one part of the body can influence the movement and pain in a different part of the body.

It is often best to see your body move without restriction of too many clothes. You may like to bring a pair of shorts with you. Women may like to wear a vest or crop-top

RESULTS: During the assessment I will discuss my thoughts and conclusions. You may ask questions at any time. I will discuss the conclusions, diagnosis and options that you have for treatment, and your role in that treatment. If necessary I will refer you to other healthcare services.

My rule of thumb is that you should notice a difference within one or two sessions.
