What to expect….
Once these details are completed the Physiotherapist will ask for a history of the clients presenting complaint. This will include details of when the problem/pain/injury started, the mechanism of injury, if any. The physiotherapist will delve a little deeper to extract further information as to what aggravates and what eases their symptoms. Then, further information as to whether the client has night pain, pain in the morning, whether symptoms increase with activity, ease with rest. Various other questions will be ask to build up enough information before moving to the next stage of the assessment.
Once all the relevant information has been compiled the physiotherapist will observe standing posture, the client may be asked to walk to observe gait pattern and foot strike when walking. Next, the client will be asked to complete certain movements. The physiotherapist may then complete some specific tests and combine this with palpation to muscle and joints to formulate an impression of what is causing the clients pain.
During this session, the client will receive treatment, this treatment will include techniques such as deep dry needling, deep tissue massage, joint mobilisations, and electrotherapy. Once the treatment is completed the client will be given a home exercise programme to start at home, provided with advice and/or education on their condition.
Follow up appointment will then be arranged.
