For your first appointment at BodyMotion Physiotherapy, we ask that you bring any medical test results (including x-rays) that may relate to the problem. Our highly trained and experienced myotherapists will ask you questions that relate to your symptoms. Tell them anything you know about your medical history, including previous injuries or surgeries you underwent. Provide them with a list of any medication you are currently using. This information is kept with the strictest confidentiality and used to determine exactly what the problem is.
Our professionals will then manipulate and analyse the affected joints and muscles, before developing a treatment plan which will include techniques such as massage, remedial techniques, further joint manipulation, myofascial dry needling and trigger point therapy.
