A good physiotherapist will ask a range of questions about your problem and about your life. Then they will also carry out their own assessment in order to ascertain how your movement and your body’s mechanisms are affected. Based on what the physio finds, a treatment plan will be made to restore functionality at a rate that works for you.
A chartered physiotherapist will ask about your medical history in order to check your suitability for the physical therapy that they will want to give you. You will be asked questions about the problem you are experiencing and any pain associated with it. This is in order for your physio to understand which areas are affected with stiffness, pain or restriction of motion.
Physiotherapists find it helpful if you can rate your pain on a scale of one to ten in order to determine the severity of your problem. It is highly important that the patient feels able to answer the questions honestly.
