Initial Biomechanical Assessment
In order to plan the best-fit course of treatment, all clients need to be fully assessed by a Physio. At your first visit, we will take a full history of your condition/s, review any previous investigations/reports or treatments, look at your movement, using hands-on techniques and/or Pilates exercises assess you, explain our findings and begin to treat you. We will give you a small selection of home exercises to get you going in preparation for your next session. Together you and the physio will agree on a goal-led treatment plan to target your specific needs. You will discuss which session types may be most beneficial for you.
