What to Expect From Your First Consultation


At the initial appointment, our therapists discuss the problem with the hand and/or upper limb, and how it is affecting you. We use this information to guide the session, and the thorough assessment of the whole upper limb problem. Assessment may include review of any scans or referral information, plus relevant medical history. We will ask about symptoms and functional difficulties, finding what are the priorities in care. This is followed by careful physical examination including a range of very specific tests and investigations.

To achieve your goals, we will develop a completely tailored treatment plan.
