What should you expect on your first visit to the Sports Medicine Clinics?
On your first visit to the Sports Medicine Clinics you will be greeted by our friendly staff and handed a New Patient Pack. This pack contains a welcome letter, our clinic policies and a consent form. Please read through them carefully. For this process we ask you to arrive 10-15mins prior to your appointment. After this is completed you will be introduced to your practitioner and taken into the consultation room.
If you have any questions regarding the clinic policies, the consent or anything else - this is the perfect time to ask, and the practitioners will be happy to go through them with you. On your first visit the practitioner will take a thorough medical history, a guided musculoskeletal examination and any other testing that may help with diagnosing your condition. If you have any x-rays, MRI's or other imaging please bring them with you.
The primary goal of your first visit is for us to diagnose your condition. We will provide you with a medical and functional diagnosis. You will receive treatment on the first visit with the aim of reducing your pain and kickstarting the healing process. We will then work out the best treatment plan necessary for your condition. We ask that you make your appointments at the end of your first visit - as consistency early on is key to your improvement.
We look forward to meeting you.
