During your first appointment you will be asked about the cause, severity and nature of your problem.
The physiotherapist will ask about any previous similar problems and any treatments or investigations that you may have had.
It is helpful for us to know about your general health and any medication you may be taking; we also ask about your lifestyle, work and leisure activities.
This will help us to build an initial impression of the problem. The next step is a full examination of the area involved. The physiotherapist will then discuss your diagnosis and advise you on the appropriate treatment options.
Your condition will be treated and you are likely to be given advice and exercises to do regularly before your next visit.
