Assessment and diagnosis

A full history of your complaint and medical history will be taken by our student practitioners to ensure you have no health issues that may affect your treatment. You will be asked to undress to an appropriate level so the injured or painful area can be examined and a diagnosis of your problem can be made.

Treatment

Based on your examination findings and diagnosis, a tailor-made treatment and management plan will be discussed and agreed with you before treatment is given. Your initial consultation normally lasts 45 mins to 1 hour with any follow-up treatment or exercise rehabilitation sessions lasting 30 minutes to 1 hour.
