At your Initial Consultation, your physiotherapist will perform an in-depth interview and physical assessment in order to determine the source and nature of your problem. He/she will then choose which evidence-based treatment technique they deem most appropriate for you, taking into account your current presentation and your past history of injury or treatment reactions. This choice of treatment technique, and how it will be specifically applied, will also be influenced by a number of factors, including how acute, chronic or irritable the injury is AND which structures appear to be involved. A combination of these techniques will be used in instances where the physiotherapist decides that this will maximize the recovery response.
