What to expect at cPhysio

All Physiotherapy assessments start with a thorough hisotry of your problem being taken. This is then followed by an extensive examination to assess how you move, possible areas of weakness/tightness/stiffness, sources of pain and movement inefficiencies.

Once the examination is complete a diagnosis can be made and clearly explained to ensure you fully understand the condition or injury. Together we can then discuss an appropriate treatment plan to help alleviate your symptoms and prevent future problems,
