We also offer Physiotherapy home visits or you can come to our Islington, North London clinic.
We will ask a lot of questions about how the problem started, where you feel your symptoms, what makes them better and what makes them worse. The better you know your problem the easier it is to help you!
By LISTENING to what you have to say we can then ASSESS the problem more accurately and efficiently.
The initial EXAMINATION will involve an assessment of the overall posture and also the affected site. Therefore, in order for the physiotherapist to carry out a proper assessment, you may be asked to undress. Normally we suggest that patients bring a pair of shorts and a vest/t-shirt or to wear comfortable and loose clothing. As part of the initial examination, the practitioner might use a model of the joint and muscles involved so that you leave with a clear idea of what is going on. This is in some ways the most important bit of the first session so ask as many questions as you like.
Then we can discuss how we suggest TREATING the problem, what techniques we might use, how long it might be expected to take to get better and what you can do at home to treat yourself. The first session will also involve actually treating the problem as well. If you need more sessions, we will book those with you as we go…our aim is to get you better as quickly as we can so you will leave impressed and tell others about us.
