What does a physiotherapy session entail?
During your first meeting with a physiotherapist, he or she will begin by assessing your health and the condition that brought you to the clinic. This will allow the physiotherapist to learn more about your medical history, i.e., your past and current health issues, your medications, and past medical tests and treatments.
The physiotherapist will then perform a series of physical tests and observations to thoroughly analyze the nature of your problem(s) and determine the cause. Once he or she has a good understanding of your condition, your physiotherapist will be able to advise you on a treatment plan that will help you achieve your goals.
Physiotherapy treatments are varied and may include education, exercises, manual techniques, or practical advice.
Sometimes, the physiotherapist may also suggest exercises that can be incorporated into your daily routine to speed your recovery or to prevent further impairments from developing. Functional rehabilitation requires little or no equipment.
