Physiotherapy – What can it offer you?
Your physiotherapist is the expert in human anatomy and movement. They can identify the nature of your condition and its contributing factors. Your physiotherapy consultation will include a full history record and clinical examination of your present condition.
For the examination, you will be required to remove items of clothing to expose the area or areas to be examined so you may want to bring some shorts or a vest top if you would feel more comfortable. After the examination, you will be given an explanation of your condition and the treatment options available to help improve your condition.
Management of your condition is likely to consist of a home exercise programme, manual therapy as well as advice on self-management of your condition to optimise healing and return to function.
