What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy is the hands-on treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions using an evidence-based approach. It focuses on the application of manual therapy in the treatment of muscles, tendons, ligament and fascia. We use a number of different techniques and modalities such as Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy and Dry Needling.
What happens during a consultation?
Your first Physical Therapy session will include a thorough history take, an assessment and treatment as well as time spent on rehabilitation and home care advice at the end of the session. Initial sessions last one hour.
Follow-up treatments will consist of a re-assessment and the majority of the session will be spent on treatment and rehabilitation. Follow-up sessions generally last 45 minutes.
What can I expect during a session?
On your first visit, you will meet your therapist and be shown to a treatment room. We pride ourselves on patient care in our clinic and strive to ensure your comfort throughout the session. During the first part of the session, you will be able to voice your concerns about your injury or complaint, as well as asking any questions you may have. You will then be asked a number of questions relating to your medical history and current injury.
Following this, an assessment will take place. You may be asked to remove an item of clothing so it is advisable to bring shorts or wear a camisole top or vest if you are more comfortable with this.
Following the assessment, if indicated, a treatment will take place. Several different techniques may be utilized during the treatment.
