Depending on your condition, your first appointment may be a scheduled telephone consultation with a physiotherapist or a face to face appointment. At the initial appointment you will be asked questions regarding your symptoms, activities, work, previous medical history etc.
If this is over the phone you may then be booked to see a physiotherapist, an Advanced Practitioner Physiotherapist (APP), a clinician with specialist orthopaedic or pain expertise or a GP with Special Interest (GPwSI). This is to complete the assessment and decide on the best management plan for you.
Your treatment plan will be discussed with you and may include a variety of treatment options, to help you to return to your usual activities. Your treatment plan will also include advice and specific exercises to help you to self-manage your condition.
