Physiotherapy Assessment

Physiotherapy assessments play a crucial role in the world of physical therapy, serving as the foundational step in creating effective treatment plans for individuals experiencing a range of physical ailments. These assessments are key to understanding a patient's physical condition, identifying the root causes of their discomfort or dysfunction, and charting a path towards recovery and improved mobility. They can even help you uncover physical ailments before you feel the symptoms of them.

What is a Physiotherapy Assessment?

A physiotherapy assessment is a comprehensive evaluation conducted by a physiotherapist. It involves examining a patient's physical condition, including strength, flexibility, movement patterns, and functional abilities. The assessment may also review the patient's medical history and any specific symptoms they are experiencing.
