Assessments give people the chance to get a big picture overview of where things are at with their condition. Our aim is to look at where things can change to help you improve your quality of life. We will look at functioning in day to day activities (ADLs), make recommendations for therapies, adaptive equipment, splinting and other necessary & helpful changes.
The aim here is that you follow these recommendations up with your GP, physiotherapist and other treating team. We are available for limited follow up to clarify any of the recommendations. If you don’t currently see one of the professions we recommend, we will do our best to help you find someone appropriate in your area.
A lot of the education that we used to provide in follow up sessions will soon be available via online courses, and occasional face to face workshops. This frees up therapists to see more people for their big picture sessions and get them on their way to living a more satisfying life with their condition.
