What can I expect at my initial consultation?
Initial Assessment and Treatment
Initial assessments are approximately 40 minutes long depending on the complexity of the condition being assessed. This time will be used to determine the likely cause and nature of the injury, perform a physical asessement and then tailor a management plan that suits your individual needs. It is advised patients wear loose fitting comfortable clothing and clients may have to disrobe to attend certain areas. Your privacy is of the upmost importance and will be respected at all times.
Follow up treatment sessions are 20 – 40 minutes long. These sessions are predominantly treatment based and will include a combination of evidence based therapies. Physio 4 Life uses mainly hands on therapy and hence manipulation, mobilization, deep tissue massage and stretching will all be utilized. This will be complemented with the use of Acupuncture, electrotherapy, exercise prescription, taping and education.
