What is Physiotherapy?
When you come to physiotherapy, you’re hoping to feel and move better— and that’s what physiotherapy aims to provide. However, it’s much more than that!
As well as a physical therapy treatment, physiotherapy is an art and a discipline that has evolved over many, many years. It was born out of the recognition that a physical injury doesn’t need to be the beginning and the end of a person’s existence. Whatever your injury is, there’s a form of physiotherapy to help you feel like yourself again, as it aims to promote recovery and meaningful gain.
There’s a range of treatments available such as massage, dry needling, joint mobilisation, and more. We work with you to find the best possible form of treatment for you, helping you to feel as in control as you deserve to be. After all, it’s your body— you’re steering this ship, we’re just here to keep you afloat!
Through the art and discipline of physiotherapy, new meaning can be restored back to your life. In time, this may enable you to truly live your life again in a manner that brings you joy. If you’re a dedicated footy player, aspiring dancer, or want to keep up with the grandkids, living your dream may be closer than you think!
No matter your age, condition, injury, or profession, physiotherapy can be a powerful tool to make the most of your mobility and well-being. Whether you’re a student, office worker, senior citizen, or aiming to become the next best sports star the world has ever seen, physiotherapy may be just what you need to help you get back out there.
Our Physio Approach
A Pinch of Prevention offers physiotherapy in Mt Gravatt as an intervention that encompasses many aspects of the life journey, such as injury treatment and prevention, patient education, exercise prescription, occupational health assessment, pelvic floor health, continence care for men and women, and falls risk assessment and mitigation practices.
The physiotherapists of APOP are highly driven individuals who are committed to helping you become the best physical version of yourself, however that concept looks to you, within the confines of what is possible. Our physiotherapists approach your treatment via rigorous assessment and sound diagnosis, which is then followed by a tailored treatment regime encompassing our 4-step process of Release, Re-educate, Reinforce and Retain.
Release: The primary muscle of the joint that is causing the dysfunction.
Re-Educate: The biomechanics of the musculature responsible for the desired movement, to operate more efficiently so as to decrease pain/episodes of painful debility.
Reinforce: and strengthen the appropriate muscles so as to decrease the likelihood of injury reoccurring.
Retain: How to hold your form during movement so that you can perform the functions that you need to do so that you can move forward in your life.

Your Physiotherapy Questions Answered
Do I need a referral to see a physio?
Physiotherapists are known as autonomous first-contact practitioners, which means that you do not need a doctor’s referral to come and see us if you have an acute injury or chronic pain. The physiotherapists of APOP are more than happy to work alongside your healthcare team; be they podiatrists, dentists, GPs or naturopaths; and are delighted to accept Enhanced Primary Care plans from your treating physician.
What qualifications do physios have?
Physiotherapy in Australia is a highly regulated industry which requires successful completion of university-level tertiary studies, active membership with The Australian Physiotherapist Association (APA) and registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). To maintain active membership within these regulatory bodies, it is a professional requirement that all members undertake a minimum of 20 hours Continuing Practice Education (CPE) each calendar year. Compliance with these rules allows patients to feel confident that their physiotherapist is a board-certified professional, subject to an ethical code of conduct and remains fully versed with current research and techniques within their field
How many physio sessions will I need?
The number of treatments you may need will vary based on your individual goals, needs and treatment plan. For some people they may only need a couple of sessions, while others may require a more ongoing and long-term plan.
What should I wear to my physio appointment?
There’s no need to dress to impress here! Wear whatever you’re comfortable in, and wherever possible, wear something that will allow us to work on the affected area. For example, if you have knee pain you may want to wear shorts, or if you have shoulder pain, a singlet may be a good idea.
Is physiotherapy covered by Medicare or my private health insurance?
This depends on your individual circumstances. Physiotherapy coverage may be available through Medicare with an Enhanced Primary Care Plan, and if you have private health cover this may or may not include physiotherapy— we recommend you check with your insurer if you’re unsure.
How do I know if physiotherapy is the right treatment type for my injury or condition?
If you’re not sure if physiotherapy is right for you, the best way to find out is to get in touch with us. Our physios will work with you to assess your needs and determine the best possible treatment options, if any, that may be beneficial for you.
