It is advisable that you wear loose clothing to your appointment, and bring a pair of shorts. It may be necessary for the physiotherapist to ask you to remove your top layer of clothing, so a sports bra for females is advisable. Please bring a list of any current medications you are on. If you are attending for Pilates then loose clothing (gym wear) is advisable.
The Physiotherapist will begin by taking a detailed history regarding your pain or dysfunction and your medical history. Following this the Physiotherapist will conduct a physical examination to assess your posture, strength, range of movement and how your tissues feel. Your Physiotherapist will then discuss the findings and you will come up with a plan together for your treatment, and home exercise programme where relevant.
Your initial assessment will last an hour, and follow up treatments will last 30 mins.
For 1:1 Pilates sessions your appointment will last 45 mins and for 2:1 Pilates sessions 60 minutes
Because all of our Physiotherapists are Pilates trained, we can be flexible about how we treat you, and can treat the problem with a combination of Physiotherapy treatment and Pilates exercises. If you are unsure which service to book for your initial appointment then please get in touch an give us a little more information and we can advise you.
This very much depends on your condition. However your Physiotherapist will keep you fully informed about the plan for treatment throughout, and this can be guided by you. Each individual response to treatment will vary.
Please let us know which Medical Insurance Provider you have your policy with on booking and we can make sure everything is on order prior to your assessment.
