We allow 1 hour for your Physiotherapy initial assessment and this will typically include treatment. During your assessment, a treatment plan is formed based on your symptoms and goals. We will take the time to discuss this with you to ensure you understand what is needed for your recovery.
Your treatment will vary according to your needs. This may include manual therapy such as joint mobilisation and soft tissue therapy, taping and acupuncture, personalised exercise prescription and advice.
An average of a further four to six 30-minute follow-up sessions are usually required.
Throughout your treatment we will reassess to ensure you are on track. If you are not improving, we will look at why and refer you for second opinions if necessary.
Children over the age of six with musculoskeletal pain can be seen at the clinic in Borehamwood.
The aim of physiotherapy is to restore you to optimum health. In most instances this is a full recovery. In some circumstances this is not possible. If necessary onward referrals to GP or Consultants will be suggested for either alternative treatment or further investigations. For those with long-term conditions physiotherapy will help you manage your symptoms to the best of your ability.
