What is a Physiotherapist?
Physiotherapists are university trained and are experts in injury diagnosis, injury treatment, exercise prescription, injury prevention, rehabilitation, management of women's health conditions, chronic pain and many other areas of sport, health and fitness.
What do I need to bring?
Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history. If you have them and if they are relevant bring scan/MRI reports, and a list of medication. You may wish to bring shorts and t-shirt or wear comfortable clothing for a physical assessment.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will discuss their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.
What should I wear to my appointment?
You may wish to bring shorts and a singlet or wear comfortable clothing for a physical assessment. Where possible we endeavour to keep you covered and clothed for the assessment and treatment. If we are treating your feet you will not be asked to undress but if we are treating your spine or shoulders, dress comfortably and wear modest underwear and/or a pair of shorts.
