Physiotherapy can assist to reduce or eliminate your pain via a variety of treatment techniques.
What do I need to know about the appointment?
In order to achieve the most effective outcome for you, it is important that the site of pain is visible for both the assessment and treatment. This may mean bringing and pair of shorts to change into or for ladies to bring a strap top to the session.
On your first session, your physiotherapist will spend time going through your condition, your medical history and your lifestyle. A physical assessment will then be carried out. Relevant treatment options tailored to your condition will then be implemented.
The number of treatment needed depends on how you, your body and your condition responds to treatment. On your first session, a treatment plan and outcome measure will be discussed and agreed with you.
Some common treatment methods that are used at SoPhysio include:
- Joint mobilisations
- Exercise Prescription
- Preventative advice / Self Management techniques
- Sports Massage
- Kinesilogy taping
- Posture correction
- Ergonomics education
