What happens at a physiotherapy appointment?

During the first appointment, you will be asked a number of questions including the history of your problem, the nature of your symptoms, previous injuries and medical conditions.

This information will help the physiotherapist to keep a medical file of you, determine if there are physical conditions that would prohibit or limit a treatment as well as draw up a treatment plan.

A physical assessment will take place afterwards to evaluate any physical disabilities. Following the assessment a briefing is made to acknowledge you with useful information concerning your case.

An appropriate treatment plan follows combining both the equipments and the techniques.

Is it important to bring x-rays results to the physiotherapy appointment?

Yes, and if possible any other results (e.g. MRI, CT scan, bone scan, blood analysis if applicable).

TOP

How long does a physiotherapy appointment last?

Physioline treatment times are a minimum of one 45 min but it usually depends on the nature of the problem treated and the techniques used in the treatment.

How many physiotherapy treatments are needed?

On completion of the initial assessment you will be given an estimate as to how many therapy sessions you are likely to need and as to how long it will take for your body to heal.

In some cases some simple advice and exercises may be enough to successfully manage your condition in which case you would only need 1 or 2 sessions.

In the majority of cases a short course of treatment (10) sessions should be sufficient to achieve an optimal recovery and significantly reduce your risk of relapse or re-injury.

In cases where there has been significant tissue damage or if your physiotherapist suspects you may be suffering from a rheumatologic condition we can refer you on to the appropriate orthopaedic physicians, rheumatologists or orthopaedic surgeons for further investigation and management.

We have links with some of the top consultants in the country in their respective fields should their services be required.

When injuries are left to their own devices all sorts of compensatory strategies and secondary problems can develop, resulting in ultimately more treatment sessions and / or surgery being required. The sooner you get to us the sooner you are going to feel better and you are also more likely to make a full recovery.

What should I wear to my appointments?

Please ensure you wear or bring with you loose comfortable clothing (ideally vest and shorts) in order to permit accurate assessment of your body and its movement patterns.
