What can you expect when you arrange an initial assessment? Please browse below for an idea about the kinds of assessment and goal setting process that will be involved in a Sharp Neurological Physiotherapy session.
A background history means questioning about how this condition began, what has happened in the past and now, what therapy is already in place, what kinds of treatments do you prefer?
Specialist neurological tests will give more information about which parts and pathways need more help, what range and strength could be improved. Physical tests as well as video or photography if useful will provide a picture of your initial presentation. This allows the therapist to build a treatment plan and is really helpful to look back on after a period of treatment.
Goals and Contract
Discussion about what is important to you. There isn't a right thing to work on, treatment is about getting to your goals. Once the goals are defined, a plan is agreed between the therapist and patient. An initial report will be produced which reflects the information found, the treatment plan and your goals.
Sessions available Monday to Friday, the sessions will last 60 minutes if tolerated. When required, an assistant may also attend, at an additional cost. It is often helpful for family members or carers to be present. Treatment will be explained and agreed throughout the session.
Contact and Cancellations
If a session needs to be cancelled or rescheduled, you will be given as much notice as possible. Should you need to cancel or reschedule a session, please also give as much notice as possible. There is no obligation to attend all the sessions arranged and patient or therapist are free to terminate therapy at any time.
