WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT MY APPOINTMENT?
On your first appointment, your physiotherapist will listen to your problem and ask questions to form hypotheses of what is causing your problem. A physical examination will be carried out using various tests to confirm the hypotheses. Then your physio will explain what is going on and how to treat it. They will most likely provide some hands-on treatment and give you some home treatment strategies.
