What you can Anticipate During your initial Physiotherapy appointment
During your initial physiotherapy appointment, you need to register at the registration counter followed by counselling where basic examination like height, weight and blood pressure monitoring will be done. You will then be sent to respective specialised Physiotherapy department where the consultant physiotherapist will ask you questions about your medical history, the nature of your injury or condition, your lifestyle and any activities that may be affected by your condition. This information will help the physiotherapist to understand the root cause of your symptoms and to develop an effective treatment plan.
Your physiotherapist may also conduct a physical examination to assess your range of motion, strength, flexibility, posture, and any other physical factors that may be contributing to your condition. Depending on your condition, they may also perform other specialized tests or assessments.
Based on their assessment, your consultant physiotherapist will develop and apply a customized treatment that may include exercises, manual therapy, education, and other interventions designed to help you regain your function, reduce pain, and improve your overall quality of life.
It’s important to be honest with your physiotherapist and to provide as much detail as possible about your condition, so they can develop an effective treatment plan. It’s also important to follow your physiotherapist’s recommendations and attend any follow-up appointments as scheduled to ensure the best possible outcome.
