What can you do to help us with your treatment

During your first appointment, we will need to find out from you about your problem, how it started and how it is affecting you. We may also need to ask you several questions about your problem to allow us to fully understand your problem. We will discuss with you what your goals and concerns are about your problem. To properly assess your problem area, we will ask for your permission to remove some of your outer clothing so that we can see the affected area and perform movements and test on you to establish exactly the cause of your problem. You are requested to bring all the previous MRI, CT, Ultrasound, X-Ray , Discharge summary , Doctor Prescription etc. along with you.

  1. How long will my assessment or treatment session last?
  2. Dependent upon your problem, your initial assessment may last up to 45 minutes.
  3. Follow up treatment sessions may last up to 30 minutes-1hour.
