How a physiotherapist can help
Physiotherapists are experts in diagnosing and treating joint and muscle problems. You should receive a thorough examination after discussing your symptoms.
Often a diagnosis can be made without the need for any x-rays or scans but these can sometimes be recommended.
In most cases a custom exercise programme will be prescribed for your specific problem. In some cases you may be referred to see a surgeon if the problem is more significant or has failed to improve with treatment.
