Focus on your Rehabilitation
The first appointment for a sport injury is no different from a usual physiotherapy consultation and evaluation (see physiotherapy page). You will be asked more specific questions related to your particular sport or even to demonstrate some sport specific movements.
If video analysis of your running, walking or cycling technique is required a treadmill and exercise bike are available in the gym area. In addition we also have the ability to analyse movements that require more room such as golf swings in our gym area.
For your appointment
The more information that you can provide the better the chance for your physiotherapist to diagnose your injury correctly.
If you have any scans, reports or referrals please bring them to your consultation. In addition, you should also bring in any footwear or equipment you use during your sport or activity.
Your physiotherapist will discuss with you your diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan. Treatment is likely to involve the use of physiotherapy techniques within the treatment room combined with a more specific exercise based program.
