Assessment: Here we talk about what your symptoms are and what might have caused them. We check your medical history and find out what goals you want to achieve. We’ll then do a physical examination, testing flexibility, strength and nerve function.
Diagnosis: The tricky bit! From your assessment we piece together all the information and develop a clinical impression of what’s going on. We can then plan our course of Physiotherapy based on your goals.
Intervention: This could include a variety of things from joint mobilisations, massage, acupuncture, education or specific exercises. This is dependant on your assessment and your diagnosis, but is always tailored to YOU.
Rehabilitation: This will ALWAYS be exercise based but shouldn’t be seen as homework…its your way of preparing yourself to return to normal activities.
Recovery: Achieving the goals that we set in the first appointment!!
