In order for us to efficiently treat and ease your pain, we will need to get to the root of its cause by a thorough physical assessment. Because we mainly deal with joint and musculoskeletal problems, it may be necessary that we need to partially undress you in order to do so. To make your physiotherapy treatment as comfortable as possible, we advise that you bear this in mind when choosing your clothing. Below are some examples of common problems we treat and some suggestions for suitable clothing. Also please be aware that you may bring a relative or friend along to physiotherapy if you so wish in order to further relax and make the experience more comfortable for you.
Please note: "All patients under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. This is a legal requirement."
What to wear:
Once your physiotherapist has made their diagnosis, they will give you a thorough explanation of your problem and recommend an appropriate course of treatment. This may include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, soft tissue therapy and other physiotherapy modalities. In order for you to gain the utmost benefit from physiotherapy, it is very important that you follow the physiotherapist's advice and recommended treatment program. This may involve some exercises and advice to follow at home but you can rest assured that anything the physiotherapist has advised is paramount for your recovery and remember...
"the more you put in to physiotherapy, the more you will get back."
