A physiotherapy assessment involves a discussion between patient and physiotherapist to determine the source of pain/injury and the impact this has on your movement function and control. You will likely be asked to perform certain movements to assess limitations which will provide the physiotherapist with a working diagnosis and treatment plan.
Physiotherapists will use various exercise methods depending on their training and experience. All physiotherapists have the fundamental skill set to prescribe and advice on specific exercise to help rehabilitate through different stages of recovery. Yoga and Pilates are more widely used amongst physiotherapists and require further training in order to deliver this type of exercise method safely. Other exercise types used by physiotherapists may include, hydrotherapy, breath control, respiratory, aerobic and gait re-education in neurological disease.
