Initial Examination and Assessment
In the initial appointment a full examination and assessment will be carried out. It will start with an in depth discussion about the injury followed up by a thorough physical assessment. From this an initial diagnosis and plan can be made for treatment and rehabilitation. During the treatment you will be continually reassessed to ensure treatment is moving in a positive direction. Usually 60 minutes needs to be allowed for this session.
Treatment is very specific to each individual, it includes a variety of pain management techniques and rehabilitation to get you back to the pre-injury state in the shortest time.
