In Your Appointment

Subjective assessment will include questions to determine:

  • The history of the complaint.
  • The intensity, nature and area of pain.
  • The medical history to rule out pathology and investigations completed.

Objective assessment:

  • Range of motion testing
  • Muscle imbalance testing
  • Flexibility
  • Core strength
  • Functional mobility
  • Postural analysis in sitting, standing and functionally
  • Palpation of ligaments, tendons, joints, neural systems, muscles and fascia.

Analysis:

  • In conjunction with co-operation with other team members i.e. the doctor or coach the physiotherapist forms a construct as to the injury and the underlying reason for the above

Plan:

  • The physiotherapist then discusses the plan with the patient to determine
  • The number of sessions required
  • The rehab required
  • Return to sport/work predicted level.

We encourage patients to bring shorts, suitable clothes and trainers when appropriate.
