On your first visit, a full medical case history will be taken, followed by a physical examination of your symptomatic area (you may be asked to remove some items of clothing). During this assessment you may be asked to perform a few simple spinal or joint movements. If necessary the practitioner will also complete neurological, respiratory or cardiovascular tests.
The practitioner will use their highly developed sense of touch called palpation to assess areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction or strain within your body. The practitioner will discuss with you a provisional diagnosis and if suitable advise a management plan for your condition and discuss the most effective treatment options. Selected treatment techniques will aim at helping to restore normal joint stability, function and pain relief. Long terms goals will also be discussed to ensure full rehabilitation of your condition occurs. Including goals to improve your strength / physical function and minimise any likelihood of the symptoms re-occurring.
The initial assessment is approximately 45 minutes and any subsequent
treatment usually last up to half an hour, normally between 2 and 6 sessions
are required. Many patients decide that they would like to have periodic
preventative treatments to avoid recurring problems
Each session is payable on the day of treatment by cash, cheque or debit/credit card
