At the initial treatment session, the physiotherapist will take a detailed account of the problem, followed by a physical examination in order to make a clinical diagnosis.
The most appropriate treatment will be discussed and given at your first appointment. You will be advised on the estimated recovery time and self-management for a speedy return to full fitness.
