Physiotherapy is a clinical treatment which assists people in recovering from an injury, condition or illness in regaining movement, mobility and wellbeing through manual therapy and prescribed exercises.
Physiotherapy places the individual at the centre of their own recovery programme and works to aid and enhance recovery and rehabilitation by improving the individual's overall fitness and lifestyle. We can diagnose and treat any injuries, past or present, that may be preventing you from moving to your best ability.
What can I expect at my first consultation?
Your first consultation is an opportunity to meet you, assess your general health, lifestyle routines and current level of fitness and overall wellbeing. We will discuss the results that you would like to achieve from your treatment. We then carry out a physical assessment which involves looking at your posture when sitting, standing and walking. This allows us to understand your current range of mobility, musculoskeletal alignment, and how you move.
Your physiotherapist will discuss an immediate action plan and outline an ongoing treatment program. Your physiotherapist will be able to explain your condition, and the projected timescale for recovery and progress moving forward. Your physiotherapist will provide you with a variety of home exercise and pain management strategies to take with you, so you are able to manage your own condition effectively between treatment sessions.
What happens next?
Following your initial assessment, our reception team will book a course of treatment appointments as recommended by your physiotherapist. The appointments will take place at our clinics, and will usually involve some form of manual treatment, whereby the physiotherapist will work on any affected areas to strengthen, move and manipulate the body to regain mobility. A variety of techniques could be used depending upon the individual and their bespoke needs, including manual therapy and acupuncture. At Back in Motion, all of our treatments are evidence-based with a proven record of success.
To begin your treatment plan, please call your nearest practice for bookings or further information.
