What to Expect
We will write down what you tell us in your records, which will not be shared with anyone unless so requested by you personally in writing.
In the course of your first appointment, we will need to examine the area(s) of your body causing discomfort. Sometimes the cause of the problem may be in a different area to the pain, (For example, pain in your lower arm may be linked to the nerves in your neck) so we may need to examine your whole body. We will be looking for any tightness in the muscles and stiffness in the joints and may need to touch these areas to identify problems. We will explain what we are doing ahead of time, so you understand and feel comfortable in examination.
If you are uncomfortable with any part of this, you have the right to ask to stop at any stage, without prejudicing your future treatment.
After our assessment we will discuss a course of treatment with you. This may involve further visits for manual therapy – a range of gentle hands on techniques that focus on releasing tension, stretching muscles and mobilizing joints. Together with exercises that you can do at home and helpful advice designed to help you relieve or manage your pain, keep active and maintain the best of health. We will discuss the likely cost of this and ask for your consent to begin treatment.
In most first visits we will begin your treatment at your first appointment, however in some cases we may require further tests first e.i. scans. Occasionally we may need to refer you to your MD or another appropriate health professional.
