What Can I Expect When I Come For a Treatment?
On your first visit to Gorey Physical Therapy, you will have a quick consultation. This will include questions on why you are there, your personal medical history, your family medical history, medication that you may be on and previous injuries that you may have suffered. From this, if you are happy to continue, a physical assessment will be carried out. This will include checking: posture, movement of the joint or extremity and how the tissue feels on palpation. From this if you are happy to carry on, a treatment will be carried out. This can consist of a range of techniques, to help ease pain and discomfort. After the treatment, rehabilitation exercises will be demonstrated and thought to you so that you can complete them at home, thus continuing in helping your recovery.
It is worth noting that it may be useful to bring shorts or a sleeveless top. Make sure to wear appropriate clothing as you may be asked to take some clothing off to help with diagnosis and treating effectively
