3. What should I expect from my consultation?
In your initial Movehappy consultation, your practitioner will take a history, review any images that you might have, and then conduct a physical examination.
The physical examination involves palpation (touch), movement, and observation, to allow the therapist to arrive at a diagnosis.
An action plan will then be formulated in conjunction with the patient to work out the best way forward for treatment. If the therapist feels that more imaging or referral onto a specialist is required then that will be discussed with you. Otherwise, with your consent, treatment will commence and, where appropriate, exercises will be given. Each patient will leave their first consultation with a working diagnosis and prognosis, including a time frame of how long the condition should take to settle, and how many appointments should be required.
