What is Physiotherapy and how does it work?

Visiting physiotherapy means you want to feel and move better. However, it is more than just that.

Physiotherapy, in addition to being a form of physical therapy, is an art form and a discipline that has been evolving over many, many years. It was founded on the belief that a person’s physical injury does not have to be the final straw in their lives. Whatever type of injury you have, there are physiotherapy options that will support you feel in your best shape again.

There’s a range of treatments available such as massage, dry needling, joint mobilisation, and more. We will work with you to determine the best treatment option for you. This will allow you to feel in complete control. After all, it’s your body– you’re steering this ship, we’re just here to keep you afloat!

You can find new meaning in your life by restoring it through the discipline and art of physiotherapy. In time, this may enable you to truly live your life again in a manner that brings you joy. You can live your dreams if you are a passionate footy player, an aspiring dancer or just want to keep up with your grandkids.

Physiotherapy can be a valuable tool for improving mobility and well being, no matter your age or condition. Physiotherapy can help you whether you are a student, athlete, or senior citizen.

What to Expect During Your Physio Appointment?

Physiotherapists work with the musculoskeletal system, and are often recommended by GPs due to their ability to assist to reduce pain and stiffness. People with various conditions may also be treated by physiotherapists. They aim to improve their mobility and aid them to live a better life. We are the team to call if you feel something is ‘not quite right’ or you need some extra support.

Initial consultations include a comprehensive assessment, informed diagnosis and treatment. This includes taking into account your medical history and relevant symptoms. No two patients’ treatment plans will look the same, even if they have the same condition, so it goes to show that physiotherapy truly is about you! You have many options and your physiotherapist will discuss them with you.

Your physiotherapist will develop treatment and management plans to meet your specific needs. Whether that’s a sore knee, headaches, arthritis, or a sports injury, your treatment is centred around you and what you hope to get out of physiotherapy.

Physiotherapists use a range of techniques which include things like joint mobilisation and manipulation, muscular and myofascial release, trigger point release, manual therapy, dry needling, and exercise therapy. They might also recommend active therapies such as orthotics, taping and hydrotherapy, rebalancing exercises, clinical Pilates or electrotherapy. No matter what your physiotherapist recommends, they have done extensive research and believe the recommended treatment will be the best for you.

Answers to Your Physiotherapy Questions

Do physiotherapists appointments require a referral?
A physiotherapist is an autonomous first-contact practitioner. This means you don’t need to be referred by a doctor to see us for acute injuries or chronic pain. The physiotherapists of A Pinch Of Physiotherapy 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 does a qualified physiotherapist have?
Physiotherapy in Australia is a highly regulated industry that 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). Each member must complete at least 20 hours in continuing practice education each calendar year to keep their membership active. 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 do I need?
Based on your goals, treatment plans and individual needs, the number of treatments that you might need may vary. Some people may only require a few sessions while others might need an ongoing, long-term treatment plan.
Is there a desired clothing for physio treatment?
You don’t have to dress up to impress! Wear what you feel comfortable in and, if possible, something that will allow us access to 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.
Can I pay for physiotherapy through Medicare or private insurance?
This will depend on your specific condition. Physiotherapy coverage might be available through Medicare with an Enhanced Primary Care plan. Private health insurance may or not include physiotherapy – check with your provider.
How can I tell if physiotherapy is the appropriate treatment for my injury?
Get in touch with our team if you aren’t sure physiotherapy would be right for your needs. Our physio team will work with you to assess your needs and determine the best possible treatment options, if any, that may be beneficial for you.
