What will happen at my first appointment?

The physiotherapist will show you into an individual curtained cubicle and will introduce themselves. They will ask you a variety of specific questions and then examine you to find out exactly what is wrong. They will explain what the problem you have is and how it is best treated, giving you advice on treatment and exercises to do at home. If you need another appointment, this will be arranged before you leave.
