Initial Examination and Assessment
On your first appointment it will be necessary to carry out a full examination and assessment of your injury. This will begin with an in-depth discussion about your injury and how it happened etc. This will be followed by a thorough physical assessment. From this, an initial plan of therapy treatment and rehabilitation exercises can be formed. At each session you will be continually re-assessed to ensure that you are moving in the direction of recovery and that the treatment is suited to your need.
Please allow up to 60 minutes for this initial session.
Treatment of your injury will include a variety of pain management techniques and rehabilitation exercises to get you back to your pre-injury state in the shortest possible time.
Your injury rehabilitation programme will be the important part of your treatment to return you to full fitness. Exercises will progress from the early stages of rehabilitaion right through to the late and pre-discharge stages. Your rehabilitation programme will be specific to you and your activity, and will aim to return you to full fitness as quickly and safely as possible.
