Your First Appointment

Your first appointment will begin with a comprehensive assessment. Physio Éireann ensures every patient is fully and carefully assessed, to first rule out any potential sinister causes of pain and then identify the exact source of the symptoms.

This will involve taking a detailed history of the problem. There will be questions on your general medical history and the medications (if any) you take.

This will be followed by a physical exam and as part of this it would be helpful to bring shorts for a knee, hip or back problem and a string top for ladies with neck or shoulder problems.

Following the assessment the diagnosis will be discussed with you and then an individualised specific treatment plan will be developed to address the problem. Physio Éireann has excellent communication links with the GPs and Pharmacists in South West Donegal and this communication ensures you will be directed to the appropriate professional if required at any point in your treatment.
