What to Expect During a Physiotherapy Assessment and Follow-up Session?
During your physiotherapy assessment, you can expect a thorough evaluation of your condition by one of our trained physiotherapists. They will ask you questions about your medical history, the specific issue you’re facing, and your goals for recovery. You’ll likely be asked to perform certain movements or exercises to help the physiotherapist understand your range of motion, strength, and any areas of discomfort. After the assessment, your physiotherapist will discuss their findings with you and create a personalized treatment plan.
In follow-up sessions, you’ll work with your physiotherapist to implement the treatment plan. They will guide you through various exercises, hands-on techniques, and possibly the use of specialized equipment to help you improve. Progress will be monitored, and your treatment plan may be adjusted as needed. The atmosphere is supportive, and your questions and concerns are always encouraged, making each session a step towards regaining your mobility and achieving your wellness goals.

Techniques and Modalities Used in Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy encompasses a diverse range of techniques and modalities designed to address a wide spectrum of physical issues, from pain relief and mobility enhancement to rehabilitation and overall well-being. Here are some of the key techniques and modalities employed by our physiotherapists:
Manual therapy involves hands-on techniques where your physiotherapist uses their hands to manipulate and mobilize joints and soft tissues. This can include joint mobilizations, soft tissue massage, and stretching to reduce pain, improve joint function, and enhance flexibility.
Exercises prescribed by your physiotherapist are tailored to your specific needs and are a cornerstone of physiotherapy. These exercises help improve strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, facilitating the recovery and prevention of injuries.
Electrotherapy utilizes electrical stimulation to alleviate pain, reduce muscle spasms, and promote healing. Common modalities in electrotherapy include TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), IFC, laser and ultrasound therapy.
Heat and Cold Therapy:
Applying heat or cold to the body can be an effective method for reducing pain and inflammation. Heat therapy helps to relax muscles and improve blood flow, while cold therapy is beneficial for acute injuries to reduce swelling and numb pain.
Taping and Bracing:
Your physiotherapist may use special taping and bracing techniques to support and stabilize injured or weak joints. This can aid in pain management and provide additional protection during the healing process.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to promote pain relief, relaxation, and improved circulation. It is often used to complement other physiotherapy techniques.
These techniques and modalities are part of the holistic approach that physiotherapists employ to address the unique needs of each patient. By combining these methods, physiotherapy can promote recovery, improve physical function, and enhance the overall quality of life for individuals dealing with a wide range of physical challenges.
