About Physiotherapy 

Physiotherapist’s are allied healthcare professionals that assesses, diagnose, treat and work to prevent disease and disability through physical and hands on methods. Physiotherapists are experts in function and movement and who work in partnership with their patients. They aim to assist in overcoming of movement disorders, which may have been present from birth, acquired through injury or accident, or are the result of ageing processes or 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.

What to expect at your first appointment

Your first appointment with a Physiotherapist will be approximately 30-45 minutes duration. During this time your physiotherapist will discuss  your reason for the visit and your medical history, and any other relevant information such as daily routines like office work or sports, which may be contributing to your current symptoms.

Your physiotherapist will then carry out a number of movement based tests. These tests may include orthopaedic testing, a spinal examination, postural assessment, muscle testing, and neurological testing.

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

Generally you will receive some form of treatment on your first visit unless your physiotherapist determines that it’s un-safe to do so.

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