At our injury clinics, all our new clients receive an initial consultation with one of our highly-trained specialists who will undertake a brief physical assessment.
From here, a relevant treatment plan will be discussed and each client will receive an explanation on how to continue. If further advice or treatment is required, the clinician will call you to check on your progress. If you continue to improve without ‘hands-on’ intervention, further advice can be given.
If you feel that further ‘hands-on’ intervention is needed, then an appointment will be made for a more detailed consultation, where one of our skilled clinicians will conduct a thorough physical assessment. Then, using Summit’s education board, we will explain why the condition has occurred, allowing you to understand the cause of your pain/problem.
As part of your physical assessment, a full musculoskeletal screening will be completed. This is a comprehensive muscle balance testing process which identifies tight, weak, overactive or underactive muscles.
Next, a relevant, evidence-based, up-to-date and individualised treatment plan can be agreed and implemented.
All treatment at Summit is ‘hands on’ treatment (manual and massage therapy techniques including mobilisation and manipulation of tissues and joints).
You will be given a home exercise programme (HEP) at the end of the session, in conjunction with your treatment, enabling you to maximise the benefits of your treatment and, allowing you to self-manage your symptoms where possible. This process is designed to minimise the amount of treatment you will require.
