The purpose of the assessment is to fully and clearly understand our clients condition and the physical basis that is causing the clients source of pain. In order to complete a physiotherapy assessment it is important to carry out a thorough examination because a correct diagnosis depends on an accurate client history and the diligent observation of the physiotherapist.
Physiotherapy uses a variety of techniques to help muscles and joints work to their full potential, helping to repair damage by speeding up the healing process and reducing pain and stiffness. Our physiotherapists do not simply offer treatment, they offer advice to help clients prevent problems from returning or even occurring in the first place. Physiotherapy helps the client restore and improve motion to achieve long-term quality of life.
As physiotherapists, we realize that client education is the most crucial aspect of the treatment process. Our commitment to education is what sets us apart from other health care professionals. Our goal is to give our clients a greater understanding of their condition and treatment, which makes it easier for them to take an active part in the treatment process.
The physiotherapist may be able to provide professional advice and broad solutions related to a client’s condition. You may need to discuss past episodes and draw our relevant facts about your client’s general health along with the details of the current issue. Should treatment be recommended, a treatment plan will be developed and discussed in detail with the patient, including an estimate of the potential length of treatment required and the expected outcomes. You will be encouraging your patient to ask questions about their condition, prevention and recurrence in the future.
