About Physio 

Physiotherapist’s are healthcare professionals who spend 4-5 years at university learning to assess, diagnose, treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Physio’s work to prevent disability and disease through their personally designed treatment sessions and management plans. Physio’s are experts in function and movement and prioritise working in partnership with their patients. They aim to assist in overcoming of movement disorders, which may be present from birth, acquired through injury or accident or are the result of ageing processes and life-changing events.

Physiotherapists can help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase joint mobility. By listening to your needs and collaborating information gained in you sessions a physiotherapist will formulate an appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals and treatment outcomes.

 

When to see a Physio

Most people visit a Physio after they experience pain in the muscles or joints, or nerve pain.

Examples of what many people have visited our physiotherapist’s includes:

  • Headaches, migraine and jaw pain
  • Sporting injuries
  • Muscle strains and spasms
  • Neck, back, and joint pain, including disc injuries
  • Postural back pain
  • Nerve entrapments such as carpal tunnel and sciatica

If you are unsure if we can help you, feel free to call our clinic reception and request a ‘call back’ from David. He can have a brief discussion with you about your concerns and advise you as to what direction is most suitable.

What to expect at your first appointment

Your first appointment with a Quay Health Physio will be approximately 30-45 minutes in duration. During this time your physio will discuss  your specific reason for the visit, gain information about your complaint and medical history. Any other relevant information such as daily routines of office work, sports and hobbies, which may be contributing to your current symptoms will also be investigated.

Your physio will then carry out a number of specifically designed tests. This testing may include orthopaedic tests, muscle testing, spinal examination, postural assessment, and neurological testing. This will provide important information for future treatment and management choices.

To carry out these tests it is often necessary for you to remove outer layers of clothing, dependant on which body part/s require assessment. You will never have to remove your underwear. Gowns and towelling are always available to cover areas that are not being assessed.

On your first visit  you will usually receive some form of treatment – unless your physiotherapist deems that it’s un-safe to do so.

Return visits are usually 20-30 minutes long and offer treatment & periodic comparative assessments to ensure you are continually progressing towards your goals.
