First Physio Appointment

Postby calamityr » Wed Mar 23, 2016 4:42 pm

So...I have my very first physio appointment booked this week - tried to get my GP to refer me but she is conviced that is it all in my head, so I am going private with a friend of a friend.

I've never had a physio appointment before and am just getting over a bad flare at the moment - quiet anxious already (just the way I am) :yikes:

Has anyone has physio before so I can kind of mentally prepare myself, and know what to expect? I assume the first appointment will basically be to see my range of movement etc, what I can do, but is it like an exam of some sort - should I go in trying to push myself or just be honest and do what I can? I'm really good at hiding when I'm in pain so I don't want to go in there and have him think that I don't need any help because I'm secretly just battling through! :shock:

Any advice much appreciated :-)
