What to Expect

Case History

At your first meeting with Robert, a full case history will be taken. At this stage, you will be given the opportunity to describe your particular symptoms. It is important for him to understand the nature of the symptoms, how and when the problem started, location and pattern of any pain symptoms, previous history of any similar conditions and any other treatments received.

Physical Assessement

Having established the case history, it is likely that a physical examination will need to be undertaken during which he will want to observe both active and passive body movement in order to ascertain if specific movements provoke pain or discomfort. Throughout this process, using a combination of three of the five key senses - hearing, sight and touch - he will put all this information together in order to formulate a problem list and treatment plan.

There may be injuries or issues which present themselves that Robert is not qualified or experienced to treat. If this is the case, it may be appropriate for him to refer you to your GP or other healthcare professional.

Treatment Plan

If it is decided to proceed with treatments, these will be fully explained, along with the treatment plan, the type of treatment proposed, likely duration of treatment and, in the case of sports injury, the careful management of your return-to-activity will be outlined.

It is very important that you understand and are comfortable with all aspects of your treatment. You will be given the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and to consider fully the treatment proposed before deciding whether you wish to proceed.
