Patient Care model
Treatment at Eric St Physiotherapy begins with an initial assessment withh one of our physiotherapists. In your initial assessment the physio will take the time to listen to your history, your goals and undertake and a thorough physical examination. Based upon your current physical condition and personal objectives your physio will create a treatment plan and suggest the most appropriate services for you.
Treatment can be broadly divided by the level of supervision you require and the amount or pain or physical limitation that you experience in the present moment. This will then determine the type of services that are available and suitable to you at your current phase of rehabilitation or functional state.
Follow up consultations:
Your treatment plan could include a mix of manual therapy, movement analysis and retraining and/or functional exercise to assist you in aquiring more efficient movement patterns. Initially this might involve private sessions with your physio and, as you progress, you will be guided into the best service to suit your level.
Whether you want to improve your mobility to better enjoy your family or your golf or you want to improve your core strength for increased force generation in sport there is something that we can do for you. Please contact our reception to know more.
