Is it for You?

The first thing to do is to find out if Enliven Health can help you with your pain or health concerns. It is essential that before any type of treatment can commence, an Initial Assessment is undertaken to identify your issues, diagnose your problem and establish the aims and goals of what you want to achieve with your Physiotherapist. The Initial Assessment will take 60 minutes. The first half of this session will involve a thorough but informal interview, asking you detailed questions about your pain or problem and your Medical History.

The second part of the assessment will consist of a Physical Examination in order to identify any issues with the Musculoskeletal and Neurological systems as appropriate, in order to inform a diagnosis. The Physiotherapist will then explain this diagnosis to you and goal setting will be discussed. In the occasional instance that Physiotherapy is unsuitable for you, the Physiotherapist will discuss other potential treatment options with you and may liaise with your GP or alternative Health Professionals as required, with your consent. The Physiotherapist will always attempt to include a degree of treatment and advice into the Initial Assessment if time allows.
