Sports and Musculoskeletal Injury

What to expect from a Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy Session At Waterford Chartered Physiotherapy Clinic?

During your 1st physiotherapy consultation Waterford Chartered Physiotherapy Clinic will take your medical history and thoroughly assess your injury. If you have any recent diagnostic exams such as a scan or X Ray, please bring it to your first physiotherapy consultation. Following a thorough examination, your Chartered Physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan. This treatment plan may include Manual Therapy, Massage, Taping or Electrotherapy. To help accelerate your recovery process, a home-based exercise plan may be devised and included as part of your rehabilitation programme.
