If you have any questions regarding these changes, please do not hesitate to call us on 07 5795601.
Do you offer physiotherapy for non - sports related patients?
Yes. A lot of our normal, day to day work involves working with people who have suffered work place or home injuries. We also do a significant amount of post-operative rehabilitation utilising our on-site gymnasium.
What happens at the appointment?
The physiotherapist will take a thorough history of your complaint and find out how your injury is affecting you. They will also read any relevant referral material that you may bring along from perhaps your surgeon or GP. The physiotherapist will then complete a physical examination, including a thorough assessment of range of motion, strength and biomechanical issues.
Your physiotherapist will provide a working diagnosis and explain this to you in a user friendly way and answer any questions you might have. They will then formulate a plan of treatment in consultation with you and set both long and short term goals for your personal recovery plan.
Can I get ACC on physiotherapy Appointments?
Yes, if you have suffered an injury that involves a specific external force within certain timeframes you will be able to lodge an ACC claim with us. There is no need to see your GP first as physiotherapists can lodge ACC claims for you.
How long are the physiotherapy appointments?
Our treatment time frames vary depending on the nature and complexity of your injury. In general, initial appointments are 45 minutes long and follow up appointments are 30 minutes or longer if needed.
What should I wear to my physiotherapy appointment?
Your therapist will ask you to reveal the injured area so please wear clothing suitable for this. If you are uncomfortable with this please speak with your therapist. We do however have shorts, singlets and tee shirts for your use and privacy as well.
Please try to wear clothing that is appropriate to your compliant, e.g. if you have a sore knee when you run, please bring some running gear and your running shoes!
