What happens on the first appointment?
A detailed history and examination takes place. This will involve some undressing to expose the area that needs examining. You are welcome to bring someone with you. After the history and physical examination, I will be able to diagnose the problem and discuss the appropriate course of action. The suggested treatment will be discussed with you and if in agreement, will be started straight away.
How many sessions will I need?
This does vary from person to person. Sometimes just one session is all that is needed. I will be able to advise how many sessions I would recommend more accurately after the first session.
