Frequently Asked Questions

 

What happens at the first Visit?

 

Physiotherapists use an individual's history and physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish a management plan. X rayís and other  kind of images may also be of assistance.

After establishing a treatment plan, treatment immediately begins. Every Patient  will receive a treatment  and exercises, especially tailored for the individual needs. Please remember:

  1. Every Back pain is not the same as the other.
  2. What works for one, does not work for the other.

This is why it is so important to come to us. We will be the detectives of your injury,

We will find out why you have got it.     

What to do to get it as good as we can.

How many treatments will I need?


This depends on many factors, and all patients are individuals. Our aim is to get you as good as possible, in the fastest time.

At the end of a treatment your physio will discuss further eventual treatmentís etc. with you.

You will be re-assessed on each visit and if progress plateaus or no improvement is seen then this will be discussed and your treatment altered accordingly. If necessary, referral to other specialist or health professionals can be arranged.

When do I know if physiotherapy is working?

 

PPC rule of thumb is: If not improved after 3 treatments, it is time to refer on.
