A Personal Approach
Putting You First
During the first 60min appointment, we will speak about your reason for coming to physiotherapy and discuss your treatment goals. We will then do a thorough assessment, after which we discuss your management plan.
This session includes treatment and a tailored home exercise program.
Should you require ongoing therapy, these 45min follow-up appointments are for you. During these sessions we will follow and adapt our treatment plan, implementing a number of physiotherapy techniques and exercise interventions to help you reach your goal.
In order to perform at the top of your game, your body sometimes needs a little assistance.
These sessions are geared towards the uninjured athlete and include maintenance sport-massage and joint mobility techniques after a brief assessment.
