WHAT TO EXEPECT:
The first visit is mainly used for a comprehensive assessment, which takes about 1 hour.
You will be asked questions about your medical history and about the area you are experiencing problems or pain with.
You will receive a physical examination to test the involved areas. Shorts or appropriate clothing will be provided where necessary.
A discussion will follow about the findings and suggested treatment plan.
Treatment will be commenced for the remainder of the time and most patients require a follow up appointment.
If the problem is not very complex and only requires a simple assessment, a full treatment will be received on the first visit as well.
Follow up visits usually takes between 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the condition treated.
The frequency and number of visits will depend on how your body responds to the therapy, as well as on the condition treated.
