Physiotherapy is a beneficial treatment for many conditions and injuries. If you have never undergone physiotherapy, you may wonder what to expect from your first session.
This article provides a detailed overview of what to expect so that you can prepare yourself for your appointment.
Assessment of Your Injury or Condition
A licensed physiotherapist might need to assess your injury or condition when you book your first physiotherapy session. There are several reasons for this.
If you don't spend a lot of time thinking about your pelvic floor, you're not alone. As a group of muscles that supports your bladder, bowel and uterus, it does a lot of work towards preventing uncomfortable conditions. When you treat it well, you reduce your risk of incontinence and prolapses. If you're starting to notice symptoms such as leaking when you cough or a frequent urge to urinate, you may need to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
