What can Physiotherapy do for me?
Physio will help you understand what your problem is, give you an explanation as to perhaps why it happened in the first place, how to recover as quickly as possible from it, exercises to do at home, and how to prevent suffering the same problem in the future.
What shall I wear?
Your physiotherapist will need to see the affected area and surrounding joints. Therefore, if it is a knee or even a hip problem, shorts would be appropriate. For a shoulder or neck problem we will likely need to see your spine too. H2
Please also bring a current medication list, and reading glasses if you need them.
What will happen at the appointment?
This largely depends on the problem. For example: If a stiff or painful joint is the problem, treatment will normally focus on mobilizing the joint by specific pressure techniques and increasing the flexibility of surrounding muscles and ligaments. You will then be shown exercises to maintain and increase this movement.
What else should I bring?
If you have any test results or X-Ray/MRI reports please bring them with you. Please also bring a current medication list, and reading glasses if you need them.
