Physiotherapy Assessment

Consists of taking important medical history and other relevant information that relates to your injury or health problem. You might be asked to perform simple tasks and your therapist will observe you and mark it down. Your body might be assessed through palpation and a treatment plan will be discussed with you.

We advise you to wear shorts and a t-shirt or other loose clothing that can be taken off easily and quickly.

Physiotherapy can involve a number of different treatments and preventative approaches depending on the specific problems you are experiencing:
