What will happen at the initial physiotherapy assessment?
During the first appointment with the physiotherapist, lots of questions will be asked regarding your current condition and functional ability – past and present. The physiotherapist will ask you to complete a variety of exercise and outcome measures to establish a baseline and to determine your goals for ongoing physiotherapy sessions.
Ongoing physiotherapy sessions generally run for 60 mins with hydrotherapy sessions running for 30 mins. However, this is determined based on the individual’s needs and goals.
