What to Expect During Your Physio Appointment?

Physiotherapists deal with the musculoskeletal and are often recommended by GPs for treatment that can reduce stiffness and pain. A variety of conditions can also be assisted by physiotherapists. Their goal is to make people’s lives easier and their bodies function better. If you have any concerns or feel like something isn’t right, we are the team for you!

A consultation is a thorough evaluation and informed diagnosis. It also includes a discussion about your medical history. 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. You and your goals for physiotherapy are the focal points to the treatment.

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 may also recommend active treatment such as electrotherapy, taping, hydrotherapy, and clinical Pilates. Whatever your physiotherapist suggests for you, they’ve considered it carefully and wholly believe that the treatment/s they’ve selected have the best chance of supporting you reach your goals.

Answers to Your Physiotherapy Questions

Do I need a referral in order to visit a physical therapist?
Physiotherapists can be seen without the need for a referral from a doctor. A Pinch Of Physiotherapy’s physiotherapists are happy to collaborate with your healthcare team, whether they are podiatrists, dentists, or another healthcare professional. They are also open to accepting Enhanced Primary Care Plans from your doctor.
What qualifications does a qualified physiotherapist have?
Physiotherapy in Australia has a strict regulatory board. It requires successful completion of at least one year of university-level tertiary study, active membership with The Australian Physiotherapist Association or AHPRA registration and active membership with The Australian Physiotherapist Association. All members must complete at least 20 hours of continuing education each year in order to remain active members of these regulatory bodies. This allows patients to feel secure that their physiotherapist remains a board-certified professional. They are subject to an ethical code, remain current with research and techniques and have met all of these requirements.
How many sessions of physiotherapy are required?
Based on your goals, treatment plans and individual needs, the number of treatments that you might need may vary. For some, they might only need a few sessions. Others might require a long-term and more comprehensive plan.
What should I wear during a physio appointment?
Here, you don’t need to dress up! Wear what you feel comfortable in and, if possible, something that will allow us access to the affected area.
Are Medicare and private health insurance accepted for physiotherapy?
It all depends on your particular case. 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 do I know if physiotherapy is the right treatment type for my injury or condition?
You can get in touch with us to determine if physiotherapy is for you. Our physiotherapists will assess your needs, and then determine the best treatment options.
