Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What will happen in the session?
This depends upon the nature of the physiotherapy session but commonly: The therapist will begin with a discussion about your problems, symptoms, past medical history and your goals. They will also perform a physical assessment. Consequently you may be asked to:
- Undress to your underwear; gowns, shorts. Perform movements or tests that may increase or reduce your symptoms. Be involved in some form of physical contact with the physiotherapist.
- Certain treatments may initially increase your pain/symptoms prior to reducing them. Consequently it is not uncommon to feel an increase in pain/soreness later that day or the following day. If post treatment you are concerned, please do not hesitate to contact us immediately.
2. Will it work?
Physiotherapy does have a very high success rate but recovery cannot be guaranteed with every patient.
3. Can someone else be with me in the session?
Yes, of course you can have whoever else you wish in the session as well e.g. a friend or relative.
4. What happens if I am unsure about what is happening or want the session to stop?
At any time you can ask the physiotherapist to stop treatment and they will be happy to answer any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to ask.
5. What exercises or equipment will I need to use?
Your treatment may involve you being taught rehabilitation exercises to do. If you are required to use any exercise equipment you will be advised how to do so safely.
6. What should I wear?
You can wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. However it is worth bearing in mind that it may be necessary for the physio to gain access to the area of the body that you wish to be examined. For example if your knee is sore we would recommend you wear a pair of shorts.
7. Will the physio bring a table?
If your problem is of a musculoskeletal nature (e.g. back pain) and is likely to need manual therapy then the physio will bring a plinth with them.
