Frequently asked question’s @ M3 and The Loft
What does Physiotherapy involve?
A physiotherapist will first assess your condition, the problem will then be diagnosed, and your physiotherapist will help you to understand what’s wrong using the latest digital and interactive tools.
A personal treatment plan will then be developed and your condition will be treated based on the assessment findings. This takes into account your lifestyle, leisure activities, and general health, and will include educational advice promoting self-management. If outside their scope of expertise, they can refer you to the most appropriate specialists in their network of experts.
Finally an individual exercise programme including strength and stability, and muscle flexibility will be formulated for on-going self-management.
