PHYSIOTHERAPY HOME VISIT
WHAT TO EXPECT
Prior to the session
After making a booking via phone, text or email, you will be sent a confirmation text or email (depending on your preference). This will include the date, time and cost of your session.
What to wear
We recommend that you wear comfortable, loose clothing that will allow easy access to the painful area, as this is important to provide a thorough assessment. The Physiotherapist will provide towels for your comfort and modesty as appropriate.
Initial Consultation – 75 minutes
The Physiotherapist will arrive at your home, work or agreed location at the time confirmed. The Physiotherapist will bring all the equipment needed for your home Physiotherapy session, including a portable treatment table.
Personal Details, Medical History and Consent
You will be required to complete an LM Physio @ Home Intake Form, which will request the information that is needed prior to being assessed and treated by a Physiotherapist. Details required include your full name, date of birth, address and contact details. We will also need your medical history, current medications and your consent to Physiotherapy assessment and treatment.
History Taking & Telling your Story
The Physiotherapist will then complete a comprehensive assessment of your condition, starting by asking you questions such as: how long have you had the pain? and how did it start? They will also ask about how the pain is impacting on your daily function and quality of life. The Physiotherapist will allow you to tell your story, in your own words, in your own time. We are aware that, especially when you have had pain for a long time, it often starts to affect many areas of your life such as work, social and family life, which can impact on your mood and overall well-being. Recent research in pain science has shown how these factors can further impact on the pain, often making it worse. We therefore believe, that it is very important to understand the nature of the pain and its impact on you as an individual to provide you with a holistic, individually tailoured Physiotherapy treatment programme, targeting all contributing factors to your pain condition.
This will be followed by a thorough physical examination, which will involve assessing your joints, ligaments muscles, tendons and nerves. This will be achieved by performing specific tests and assessing your movement, strength and flexibility. They will also observe the movements that you find particularly painful or difficult to do in addition to more general functional movements. Your Physiotherapist may also conduct a neurological examination, assessing your sensation, reflexes, strength and other specific tests if there are indications from your symptoms that the nerves may be involved in your pain problem.
The information from your condition history and personal story along with your physical examination will be used to ascertain a clear diagnosis of your pain problem. Your Physiotherapist will then provide you with an honest, clear and understandable explanation of your pain problem and how Physiotherapy can assist in your recovery.
Your Physiotherapist will be trained in numerous treatment techniques including manual therapy, exercise therapy, massage therapy, soft tissue techniques, acupuncture, dry needling therapy, taping and pain science education. Their choice of treatment will be determined based on what they clinically reason to be the most effective for your pain presentation / condition, which is aligned with your expectations of the session, whether this be a reduction in pain, an improvement in movement or in-depth education about your condition and how to self-manage. Often a combination of treatments will be provided over the course of your Physiotherapy journey.
Your Physiotherapist will repeatedly review your painful positions and movements to determine the effectiveness of the treatment. Your Physiotherapist may suggest some specific movements or exercises to perform to assist in your recovery following / in between sessions. These will be clearly explained, demonstrated and practised within the session. Further information will be provided via email. Please see ‘After the Session’ section below.
If you plan to have further Physiotherapy sessions at home, your Physiotherapist may discuss with you what your long-term goals are and devise a plan for how we can guide and support you to ensure you achieve these. This may also be done at subsequent sessions.
At the end of your session, you will have the opportunity to ask any further questions you may have.
We currently accept payment for your home visit Physiotherapy session by cash or online bank transfer. If paying by online bank transfer, we kindly request that this is made at the end of the session, or within 24 hours of your session.
Once the payment for your Physiotherapy session has been received, you will be sent a receipt via email within 24 hours.
After the Session
The Physiotherapist will email you any exercises that they have suggested you perform, within 24 hours. This will include a picture and / or video of the exercise to be performed. This will be accompanied by clear instructions of how to perform the exercise, how many repetitions are required and how often you should perform the exercise to ensure its effectiveness. It will also indicate whether any pain is expected to be felt, and if so what level is safe and appropriate for your specific pain condition.
The Physiotherapist will commonly contact you within 2-3 days via text or email to see how you are things are going.
You can make a follow up appointment at any time. Please note, that we do offer a discount on multiple sessions paid for in advance. Please speak to your Physiotherapist or call 07512 388 633.
Follow up appointments (45 & 60 minutes)
As for the Initial Consultation, your Physiotherapist will arrive at your home, work or agreed location at the time confirmed. They will bring all the equipment needed for your home Physiotherapy session, including a portable treatment table.
The home visit will start by asking you how your symptoms have been since the last session, and their impact on you. Your Physiotherapist will want to know if there have been any changes to your condition, such as any new symptoms or any changes in your management, such as a change in pain killers.
Your Physiotherapist will ask you repeat movements that are known to reproduce your symptoms and may perform some additional tests to confirm your diagnosis. They will then proceed to treatment as determined by your response to previous treatment, whether your condition is improving, the assessment on the day and your session / overall treatment expectations.
They may also ask additional questions about the pain itself and its impact on you to further understand the complexities of your specific pain presentation.
Again, your Physiotherapist may suggest some specific movements or exercises to perform to assist in your recovery following / in between sessions. These will be clearly explained, demonstrated and practised within the session. Further information will be provided via email. Please see ‘After the Session’ section above.
