Your first visit
- Please bring any relevant test results you may have such as x-ray reports, MRI or bonescan findings.
- Make a note of any medication you are taking including over the counter products.
- If you are using private health insurance please bring the relevant documentation.
- Treatment will be started on your first visit following thorough assessment.
- A comprehensive treatment plan to address symptoms, causes and prevention will be discussed with you
- Treatment will be tailored to your needs and progress monitored at each session.
You will probably be given “homework” in the form of exercises and advice on self-management. All this will be discussed with you in detail and any exercises given will be practised so that you know exactly what to do to speed your recovery. Your active involvement is often the key to making swift and lasting improvements in your condition.
Payment is required at each session by cash or cheque unless funded by a private insurer.
What is physiotherapy
Physiotherapists undertake a 3 or 4 year university course and are experts in human anatomy and movement. They must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council [HCPC] which regulates the profession. Click here to check the current register. Most physiotherapists are also members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists.
At Stranmillis Physiotherapy we use our expert knowledge and skills to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions using a wide range of joint and muscle techniques to restore pain-free movement. Assessment findings are explained and discussed with each patient so that they understand the nature of the problem and how it will be resolved. Medical knowledge is constantly developing and here at Stranmillis Physiotherapy we strive to keep up to date with the latest developments by completing courses and using research findings to guide our treatments.
