Physiotherapy treatment, which is also known as physical therapy, is a paramedical service that helps in rehabilitation of the patients who have gone through injuries or surgery.
Most often after a surgery, doctors refer their patient to a physiotherapist for treatment with the ultimate goal of speeding up healing time and restoring normal biomechanics to the area of repair or injury. However, physiotherapy is not just for people who have had surgery. We are also experts in decreasing pain and discomfort for all acute injuries, chronic pain, or increasing your performance in a sport or hobby. The treatment will vary depending on the reason you are seeing a physiotherapist. Patients who go through treatment could be of any age from young children to older adult.

What To Expect At Your First Rehabilitation Appointment
The first step is to book your initial appointment to assess the root cause of the problem. The physiotherapist will take a detailed history on your discomfort as well as a full medical history. They then will apply different tests to assess the tissue that is damaged. They will then review with you what they have found, explain the course of action and apply the first treatment. It is usually a good idea for patients to wear/bring loose fitting clothes , however if you forget we have some that you can borrow.
