The number of sessions required depends on the nature of your condition, its severity, and your individual response to treatment. In some cases, a few sessions may be sufficient, while others may require a more extended treatment plan. Your physiotherapist will discuss the expected duration and frequency of your treatment during the initial assessment.
During a physiotherapy session, your therapist will evaluate your condition, discuss your medical history, and conduct various physical assessments. They may use manual techniques, exercises, stretches, modalities (such as ultrasound or electrical stimulation), and other treatment methods to address your specific needs. Your progress will be monitored, and treatment plans may be adjusted accordingly.
Physiotherapy treatments are designed to alleviate pain, not cause additional discomfort. However, some therapeutic techniques may involve temporary discomfort or soreness as your body adjusts and heals. Your physiotherapist will strive to minimize any discomfort and will communicate with you throughout the session to ensure your comfort.
