What happens at the appointment?

 

The process of examination and diagnosis:

 

Assessment:

 We will first work out what the problem is by assessing the causes.  This will involve a comprehensive discussion about the history of your complaint, how it started, what makes it better and worse, when does it hurt most in the day, does it disturb your sleep and do you have any other symptoms beside pain.  We will also take a history of your past medical conditions.  We will ask about medication and also about what sports and activites you like to do.  We will ask about your home life ad what you do for a living, whether you drive to work and how often you take time off. 

All of this is called the 'subjective history' and it is really important because it gives us the information to work out what is wrong.  We may ask you a lot of questions and this is called differential questioning and helps us to diagnose one condition from another. It may follow the format of a medical examination similar to what you may experience when seeing a doctor or surgeon.

Examination:

In this part of the assessment we will look at the range of bodily movement or joint.  We will test muscle strength, neurological fuction and normal everyday movements.  We will also perform some special tests to isolate certain structures.    Physiotherapists are trained in delicate handling of the body. However, testing may cause some discomfort.   

Sometimes it is necessary to ask your GP to arrange bloods tests or xrays.  Physiotherapists are trained to look for common conditions and are particularly good at looking for problems not ameanable to physioatherapy.  We can tell if you need to see a surgeon and will refer you to the GP should we deem this necessary.

 

Treatments: 

See our list on treatments to see the types of techniques we offer. 

 

What about Covid and Lockdown?

No probelms, we run a COVID SAFE clinic so you are in safe hands.  This means that during the Swansea Lockdown, you can still attend for physiotherapy appointments.  We cant have people in pain and throughout the pandmic we kept our Reading clinics open for emergency Face to Face and online sessions.  Pain and injury causes misery to millions each year.  With little access to GP or hospital, we have been a life line to patients and this will continue with the opening of our Swansea clinic.  We wear full PPE, as you to wear a mask, ensure you have signed our consent form and check your temperature on your way in.  We like to call it a belt and braces approach.  We have tons of hand sanitiser so we have now officially swapped our hand shake with a blob of hand sanitiser.  Of course, if you dont feel safe then you can select an ONLINE appointment instead of a F2F.  We have been conducting online video appointments for the last 5 years, covering the whole of the UK and the entire world! So, we know they work - just ask the last patient we treated in Dubai!

Prostatitis and CPPS

Chronic Prostatitis or Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndome (CPPS) are often considered Synonymous where pain in the pelvis is of a persistent nature and at Core Body Clinic in Reading, Berkshire we see a large number of men who have been suffering for a very long time.   In Prostatitis, there is often as an infection affecting the prostate gland.  However, only about 5-10% are actually bacteria related with the vast majority related to inflammation or non-specific pain syndromes. Prostatitis can affect all men at any age and accounts for about ¼ of all pelvic pain conditions, genital or urinary conditions in young to middle aged men.  Where pain persists after a period of time and after medicine has failed to resolve pain, CPPS or Chronic Prostatitis is a diagnosis assigned.
