What to Expect At Your First Physiotherapy Appointment
Your first physical therapy appointment can be a little daunting, but it doesn't have to be! Here's a quick run-down of what you can expect:
First, you'll meet with your physical therapist and they'll ask you about your medical history and what your goals are for therapy. They'll then do a physical examination to assess your range of motion, strength, and flexibility. Based on their findings, they'll develop a treatment plan for you.
Your treatment plan may include a variety of different exercises and modalities. Don't be afraid to ask your physical therapist questions about anything you're unsure about. They're there to help you!
What Comes Next
After your first appointment, you'll likely have a good idea of what physiotherapy is and whether it's right for you. If you decide to continue with physiotherapy, your physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan specifically for you. This will likely include a combination of exercises, manual therapy, and education. Depending on your needs, physiotherapy can be a very effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions.
Overall, physiotherapy can be extremely beneficial for those who are looking to improve their quality of life. The main goal of physiotherapy is to help patients achieve and maintain their optimal level of function and independence. Physiotherapy can help to achieve this by reducing pain, improving range of motion, and increasing strength and endurance.
