Your initial consultation will be approximately 45 minutes. This will involve the Physiotherapist taking a detailed history from you regarding the condition. This will then inform an examination of the injured area, enabling an accurate diagnosis to be reached. Following this an appropriate treatment plan will be discussed with the patient, including expected time scales for resolution or management of the condition. The initial assessment will also include treatment, home exercises and advice to help improve the speed of recovery. If appropriate, onward referral to a consultant, GP or other health professional can be arranged.
