At your first physiotherapy session, your physiotherapist will spend time discussing your lifestyle, leisure activities, general health and any relevant medical history. They will then carry out a physical assessment to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you and your individual condition.
The number of treatments you need will depend on your individual condition and how your body responds to treatment. But, at your first session your physiotherapist will discuss and agree the treatment plan with you, including an approximate guide to the number of sessions that may be required.
