During your first assessment, your physiotherapist takes the time to listen to your story to get an in- depth understanding of your problem.
Sharing your expectations of the session and your health goals with your physio, will help to guide your assessment and treatment plan. This is followed by a thorough examination.
It is recommended that you wear comfortable clothing for this.
At the end of examination, your physio will discuss their findings with you, answer any questions you might have and recommend treatment options and a management plan for you.
The use of the real time ultrasound does require a full bladder, and we will ask you to drink two glasses of water prior to arriving for your appointment.
For your comfort and convenience, a water filter is located in our clinic. However, we do not want you to experience any discomfort. Please feel free to empty your bladder at any stage and top up with more water as necessary.
With your consent, our assessment may include the use of real time ultrasound for assessment of your tummy and / or an internal examination. We will work collaboratively with you to ensure you feel comfortable at all stages of your examination.
We recommend that a follow-up appointment of 30 minutes be booked for 1-2 weeks after your first, initial appointment.
If you are scheduled to have surgery, we advise that you book a follow-up appointment 2 weeks after your surgery.
