Treatment

Full assessment

At the initial session a full history, past and present, is taken.

It would be useful to bring:-

  • A list of past illnesses, injuries and accidents (Please inform us if you have a heart pacemaker when making your appointment)

  • A list of drugs you are taking

  • Any X-rays, MRIs or scans you have which are relevant

  •  This is followed by a physical examination which will lead to a clinical diagnosis.

 A treatment plan is then decided and generally there is time for some treatment.

 A brief re-assessment is made at each subsequent treatment session.
