During your first appointment, you can expect that your practitioner will ask you a lot of questions to gain an understanding of your presenting injury or condition, plus to gauge your overall health and wellbeing.
Depending on your condition your practitioner will conduct a physical examination which may involve doing certain movements or tests. Our therapists will conduct a hands-on assessment, where they will palpate and examine areas of the body that are related to your condition.
Depending on the service you are seeking your first appointment may involve treatment therapies including exercise therapy or hands-on manual therapy.
Each client can expect to leave their first appointment with a clear plan of what is involved to reach their health goals. This management plan can also be emailed to each client. You may also have some ‘homework’ including exercises or lifestyle changes to implement prior to your next session.
If you have any scans, reports, or referrals from other health care practitioners please bring these to the session.
For Exercise Physiology sessions please wear exercise gear and bring a bottle of water.
For our manual therapies session, some practitioners may require you to expose areas of skin to get the best out of the treatment (for example if massage therapy is required)
