Yes. However the main purpose of the initial consultation is to gather as much clinical information as possible about the cause(s) of your problems, so that the right treatment or course of action can be decided upon.  If time permits (and if it’s appropriate) you will be be treated at this visit.  If this is not the case, you will be given advice on how you can start to minimise the pain severity and you will be asked to return to start treatment within the next few days.
