Our evaluations start with a pre assessment questionnaire regarding your health status, followed by a ‘subjective assessment’ in which our therapist will ask you a series of questions to discover what we need to know about your injury or condition.

Your treatment with us is likely to include manual therapies, such as soft-tissue massage and joint mobilisation. Many people report feeling an immediate sense of relief during and after their treatment sessions, but it is also common to experience some discomfort, such the feeling of heat,pain and a local tenderness around the areas worked on. Initial discomfort like this is completely normal and you should feel better after three days. Your physiotherapist will give you advice about how to manage post therapeutic effects, which may include avoiding any strenuous activity and applying ice to the area.
The fix to your symptoms is simply in the technique so we will work closely with you during the initial evaluation and all treatment consultations to ensure you have perfected all your exercise programs. We will demonstrate any new or unfamiliar techniques until you are comfortable doing them yourself, and will ask you to demonstrate them back to us to confirm you have a comprehensive understanding. As with any of our treatment plans, you will always have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you need during the education aspect of consultation. Your self-confidence in performing prescribed, key movements is crucial to our cooperative success! In addition, if we’ve recommended a workout plan above and beyond a rehabilitative home-exercise program, you can make use of our Physio based personal training services to ensure your utmost and continuous success of a person.
Your physiotherapist will be able to advise you on this, depending on the conclusions of your initial assessment.
