Everything will depend on what required rehabilitation and the health professional consulted. In common core, during the first session, an assessment is carried out. “Then, at the physiotherapist’s, for example, during the very first session, the practitioner questions his patient about the reasons which lead him to consult, the discomfort and pain felt on a daily basis, he looks at the radiological examinations and assesses the deficiencies functionalsays Dr. Delong. Once this assessment has been carried out, and depending on the problem encountered, he will be able to propose different exercises to practice in the office“.
