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.

The use of pre-season screening is to identify any possible injuries and provide rehabilitation programmes can be made up for individual players. It is ideally done 8-12 weeks before the start of the season to allow time for the changes to take place.
