5 Things You Should Know Before
Your Physiotherapy Consultation

It's not surprising that many people have questions about their first physiotherapy consultation. After all, physical conditions and their treatments are often widely varied.

 

Here at NorthHab, we like to ensure that all patients are happy, comfortable and well-informed of their service. So here are some things you should know before you come in. 

More than massage: Physiotherapy treatment can encompass a variety of methods, including ice and heat treatments, electrotherapy and exercise therapy. [more]

Your physio might ask questions: Your physiotherapist will typically need to know some things about your medical history and your physical activity at work and at home. [more]

2.

Getting active: Physical activity can be the most effective treatment for many conditions. Your physio may demonstrate light exercises to aid active treatment outside of appointment times, increased activity based on your condition and more. [more]

3.

Dressing down: One of the questions we get asked the most is what to wear to a physio appointment, particularly when treatment is targeted to clothed areas such as the back. Your physio will provide you with a gown if required; otherwise, we recommend that you wear something comfortable and loose fitting to your appointment. [more]

4.

Group effort: Some conditions are more complicated than others. Many of our patients are referred by doctors or see other professionals for the same concerns. We recommend you book your physio appointment after your initial GP consultation and have any scans or x rays before coming in. [more]
