2) What is involved in the Initial Assessment?

The Initial Assessment will be split into 3 sections: A medical history questionnaire, a subjective assessment, and an objective assessment of your injury. MEDICAL QUESTIONNAIRE AND COVID SCREENING: You will be required to fill in a form before your first appointment which covers a few questions to gather information on you and your medical background. This form will be emailed to you when you book in. These questions will include:

  • Personal details (name, address, date of birth)
  • Occupation
  • Medical history (any conditions which may affect your health and treatment, or any family medical conditions)
  • Current Medication
  • Previous Injuries and hospital stays
  • COVID risk assessment
SUBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT: You will be asked a number of questions about you and your injury. The more detailed your history of the injury is, the clearer the diagnosis becomes. The answers to the following questions will help create a successful injury diagnosis and treatment plan:
  • When did the injury occur?
  • What happened?
  • Where does it hurt?
  • What sort of pain is it?
  • Does the pain radiate?
  • What makes it better or worse?
  • Have you injured this area before?
  • Have you had previous treatments and did they help?
OBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT: Here the therapist will go through a series of assessments to your posture and the joint or joints affected by the injury. Your range and quality of movement will be assessed along with strength, joint and injury specific tests. The therapist will need to see the injured area, so appropriate clothing should be worn, such as shorts or a vest top. If you wish to be accompanied to your initial assessment, you are more than welcome to bring a friend or family member along.

3) I'm not a sports person, can you still help me?

Yes we can, Sports Injury Rehabilitation principles can be transferred to any musculoskeletal condition. The assessment and treatment tools used to diagnose and heal sports injuries are no different to those used by physiotherapists in the NHS or private sector. The advantage of Sports Rehabilitation is that we have an in-depth knowledge of how to return individuals back to their pre-injury state, whether that is to a professional sport standard or a weekly work out.

4) Can I be accompanied to my appointment?

5) What is “Prehab”?

Prehab aims to reduce your risk of injury happening or recurring by implementing specific exercises to your needs. These can include posture correction (both static and functional), proprioception (balance), "core and glutes" exercises, strength training, and flexibility.
