If you’ve never seen a Physiotherapist before, read below to find out what to expect.
An initial assessment is designed for anyone with a musclskeletal problem who hasn’t yet been to Function Jigsaw or is experiencing a new area of pain or concern. In order to provide a world class service and ensure sufficient time to form a strong collaborative approach, these appointments usually take between 45 minutes to an hour.
Our physiotherapists will thoroughly discuss your symptoms, along with any concerns or anxiety you may have about them, complete a thorough examination and discuss their findings with you. An agreed plan of action, treatment goals and program will then be formulated together.
Follow Up Treatment
A follow up appointment typically lasts for half an hour although hour appointments are available depending on the nature of the concern.
During these sessions, your physiotherapist will check how you are progressing, complete relevant evidence-based treatments such as joint mobilisations, soft tissue techniques or acupuncture, teach and progress exercises as required and offer any further advice and reassurance. We will also provide you with self-management strategies in order to enable you to take back control of your symptoms.
