If its your first appointment, can you please arrive 10 minutes early to complete the registration process and bring any relevant information that you think the physiotherapist may find useful e.g. x-ray results, letters from consultants, medical reports etc. Your Initial Appointment will last either 60 or 45 minutes and all subsequent appointments will last 30 minutes, so please allow enough time for your assessment and treatment. You have the right to access your clinical notes.
What should I expect to happen at the assessment?
The physiotherapist will take a detailed history and then do an examination using a number of recognised tests to try to establish the nature of your problem. They will then begin treatment with you or advise you on the best course of action. This will often include a series of exercises or other self-management advice to help you recover. It is important that you follow this advice because our experience tells us that the patients who follow their plans generally respond better to treatment.
What do I wear?
Please wear (or bring to change in to) suitable clothing that allows the physiotherapist to effectively examine your injury (the body part to be treated needs to be accessible). Shorts, vest top or other similar attire generally work well in the clinic.
