FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Physiotherapy Related Questions, Answered for You
DO I NEED PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Whilst it is largely accepted that most minor injuries such as a pulled muscle or a strain will heal and get better in time, Physiotherapy can help to accelerate this healing process. At Aspire Physio UK we will fully assess your symptoms and aim to give you a structured treatment plan to ensure that you return to full activity as soon as possible. We will also aim to reduce your risk of re-injury through the use of pre-habilitation and conditioning exercises.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN ATTENDING PHYSIOTHERAPY?
At your first appointment with Aspire Physio UK you will be asked a series of questions to enable us to understand the history and nature of your complaint. It is important to us that we understand your concerns and aspirations for treatment. Secondly we want to assess your symptoms, this will most likely consist of observing your movement of the affected area, and perhaps the surrounding areas too. This will likely be followed up by a series of tests to ascertain your strength and flexibility. Finally we may need to put our hands on the areas affected to feel for tension or stiffness. Following these steps you will receive a diagnosis as well as a thorough, HONEST explanation of what is causing your symptoms. From here a treatment plan will be made with you, to help you achieve your recovery goals.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Following your initial assessment a treatment plan will be made, and you will be advised on how long you can expect your recovery to take. At Aspire Physio UK we are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals, as such we are flexible to your needs. For the best results we recommend regular sessions (in most cases weekly) until you have reached your goal. However, we are also more than happy to help those that are merely looking for some advice and feel confident in managing their own rehabilitation utilising the treatment plan produced at initial assessment.
We will never ask you to book/attend more sessions than you need!
