How do we treat these conditions?
With more than 12 years’ experience successfully treating these intimate conditions, you know you are in good hands at Scarborough Physio and Health.
At your initial appointment, your physio will perform a comprehensive examination, along with taking a thorough medical history. With your permission, your physio may contact your GP or specialist for further information and to coordinate your treatment or rehabilitation.
Your treatment plan will consist of manual therapy, rehabilitation and education. All three of these areas are essential in your recovery so that you return to your daily life with as much confidence as possible. We take great care to treat everyone as individuals, tailoring your treatment plan so that it specifically targets your issues, bringing relief along with a positive way forward.
