WHAT TO EXPECT AT

YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

You do not need a referral to see a physiotherapist

After speaking with you over the phone about your concerns, we will book you an assessment that may take up to an hour (45 minutes for musculoskeletal assessment and 60 minutes for womens health assessment)..

The assessment will involve

Thorough questioning about your concerns, symptoms, lifestyle, medical and surgical history.

Examination to

establish a diagnosis**

Discussion of your goals and what you are hoping

to achieve with physiotherapy

Detailed education and explanation of your symptoms as well as the underlying cause of your problem

Discussion of

your treatment options

Development of a personalized rehabilitation / exercise program

**You may be offered an internal examination as part of the women's health assessment. This is an important part of your examination and helps identify the tone, strength, and control of your pelvic floor muscles. You are still able to book a Women's health assessment and opt out of an internal examination. Your consent will always be sought before any internal examination or treatment.

Please be assured that your modesty will be maintained at all times and any information you provide will be kept highly confidential.

You are welcome to bring a friend or family member to the consultation if you would like to. You will also be offered a chaperone if you need an internal assessment - the chaperone will need to be a member of the team who will have been trained in the correct procedure for an internal assessment. Should you have any concerns - please ask.
