Sessions can vary from 30 to 45 minutes depending on the condition the patient is suffering from and the treatment required. The first session will always consist of a discussion and assessment of the problems experienced. The therapist will then perform specific tests and review all investigations to determine a diagnosis. The patients expectations of the therapy can then be discussed from which the treatment plan and goals can be made.
Treatment will include a variety of techniques such as mobilizations, massage, stretches and electrotherapy amongst other options. At the end of the session, there should be some discussion about correcting lifestyle factors, including specific rehabilitation exercises. The progress and further planning of sessions can then also be done.
