What happens in my first session?

All treatment sessions at artistic sports physiotherapist begin with an initial consultation. In this consultation;

  1. A history is taken about your injury/concern, general health and previous history. Sport specific questions will be asked about your training and regime to understand your task load.
  2. A clinical examination is performed with special tests specific to your presentation. It is asked if possible, that you bring your training prop or instrument with you to the consultation so you can be thoroughly assessed. For example: if you are a musician, bring your instrument with you. If this is not possible, bring in a video of you performing the concerning task in your training environment.
  3. After a history and assessment is conducted, a provisional diagnosis is discussed.
  4. Treatment is commenced based on clinical reasoning.
