Q: What happens in my 'Initial Assessment & Treatment' appointment?
A: You will have a comprehensive assessment by our experienced physiotherapist. You will be asked about your medical history, general health and any goals you want to achieve. The therapist may ask you to perform movements and exercises in order to assess your ability. After the assessment, you will formulate some goals with the therapist and gain a personalised treatment plan.
Q: What should I wear for physiotherapy sessions?
A: You should wear loose, comfy clothing that will not restrict your movement. We suggest you wear warm clothing for group physiotherapy sessions at Whiston Parish Hall during the winter.
