What to Expect from a Physiotherapy Assessment:

During your physiotherapy assessment, you can expect a detailed and patient-focused examination conducted by our skilled physiotherapists. The assessment process involves:

  1. Patient History: We begin by discussing your medical history, current symptoms, and any relevant lifestyle factors. This information helps us understand the context of your condition and potential contributing factors.
  1. Physical Examination: A thorough physical examination follows, evaluating aspects such as joint range of motion, muscle strength, muscle palpation and posture. Our goal is to identify any areas of dysfunction and develop a clear picture of your musculoskeletal health.
  1. Functional Assessment: Functional assessments involve observing your movements and identifying any limitations or compensations. This allows us to tailor your treatment plan to address specific functional goals.
  1. Diagnostic Tests: In some cases, diagnostic tests such as imaging may be recommended to provide a more detailed understanding of your condition.
  1. Treatment Plan: Following your assessment, we will develop a plan for follow up tailored to your specific needs and goals. This will depend on your injury, funding stream, and often includes multiple treatment options. 

Duration of Assessment
