Try to arrive 5 minutes before your appointment is due to start. You will be asked to fill in a basic questionnaire.
Please wait in the waiting area in reception and your physiotherapist will come to get you for your appointment.
Unfortunately if you are late your treatment time will be cut short so that the next person can be seen on time.
What to expect from your first physiotherapy appointment
Be prepared for your first appointment to last an hour to enable the physiotherapist to examine you thoroughly.
Please discuss with the physiotherapist on the day if you would like a friend or relative to attend the appointment with you.
Planning your treatment
At the end of your assessment you and your physiotherapist will discuss and agree with you what could be achieved and plan which treatment will be best for you. It may be that formal treatment does not start until the second visit.
