Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen at my first appointment?
The initial consultation will take between 45 minutes and 1 hour. This will involve taking information about the pain and discomfort, medical history and further information about you. This is to get a whole picture of you to help with working out how and why there is pain. You will then be asked to undress as much as is needed so that they can examine you. If you would like to wear some loose fitting sports shorts and a vest please feel free. If you are uncomfortable with undressing please discuss this with me.
I will then require you to perform some simple movements and will also move some of your joints unaided by you. I will feel the soft tissue (muscles, tendons ligaments etc) and may ask you to pull and push in certain directions to ascertain the area of the problem. From this I will diagnose your condition and discuss a treatment plan with you. The first consultation also includes a treatment.
