This session lasts around 45 minutes when you attend Momentum Healthcare, at either our Margate or Broadstairs location, for the first time for an appointment with one of our Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, or Sports Medical Specialists. On arrival you’ll be asked to complete a personal details and medical history form before commencing the appointment. The consultation lasts around 45 minutes and the health professional will confirm details around your medical history, and then record detailed notes about your presenting pain complaint. This is followed by an examination of the painful area to help determine the potential cause of the pain you’re suffering. In most cases treatment will also be provided in this session and we aim to deliver a clear plan of action for your recovery.
All of our health care professionals are able to manage a range of pain complaints, from spinal to joint or muscle complaints and also sports and non-sports related. If you’d like to discuss the most appropriate therapy for the consultation then please feel free to contact us directly where we can discuss this in more detail. Should the unlikely scenario occur where the healthcare professional feels you’d be better placed with an alternative therapist within the practice, then this will be organised as a follow on session and not as a second consultation.
At Momentum Healthcare we pride ourselves on providing well-defined and informative solutions to your pain complaint. The consultation is an essential part of us building a clear picture of your background and general health; all of which can impact on the treatment plan we believe will get you pain free in the quickest time frame possible.
If you have any questions or concerns about the nature or process of the consultation then please feel free to call or email the clinic. One of our health professionals will be more than happy to speak with you and explain any aspects further.
