The Advantages of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can aid people with many health problems, at different levels of activity, and at different stages in their lives. Physiotherapy can be done in many ways, each with its own set of goals depending on the needs and desires of the patient.

Reduce Pain

Physiotherapists are well-trained in many different forms of pain management, all of which aim to reduce feelings of pain.

Improve Movement

Stiffness and/or discomfort can result in a decreased range of motion, which could have a negative impact upon your life. Physiotherapy aims at improving your range of motion and maintaining joint integrity.

We want to see you heal from within by reducing pain, enhancing mobility, and providing treatment for your symptoms.

Strengthen Muscles

Strengthening exercises play a major role in physiotherapy. To do this we support you to work the muscle which encourages its growth, and in time, increases its strength.

Prevent Future Injury

Prevention is more than just our motto. It’s our business! Prevention is always better than cure, so we do all we can to prevent any future injuries.

Improve your quality of life

Life is there to be lived, so don’t waste a minute more not feeling like the best version of yourself. Physiotherapy increases endorphins, thus increasing your happiness, quality and enjoyment of life.

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 can work together if something seems ‘off’ or needs improvement.

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 should develop treatment and management plans that suit your needs so that together, you can address the specific problems you are experiencing. It doesn’t matter if you have a sore knee or headaches. Your treatment will be tailored to you and what you expect from physiotherapy.

Physiotherapists can use various techniques including manual therapy, dry needling, trigger points release, joint mobilisation and manipulation and muscular and myofascial relief. They may also recommend active treatment such as electrotherapy, taping, hydrotherapy, and clinical Pilates. Whatever treatment your physiotherapist suggests, they have considered it thoroughly and fully believe that the treatment they recommend will assist you to reach your goals.

Answers to Your Physiotherapy Questions

Do physiotherapists appointments require a referral?
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 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). It is a requirement for all members to complete at least 20 hours of continuing practice education (CPE) annually in order to maintain an active membership with these regulatory bodies. These rules allow patients to be confident that their physiotherapists are board-certified professionals, subject to an ethics code of conduct, and fully informed about current research and techniques in their field.
How many physio sessions do I need?
It will depend on your personal goals, needs, and treatment plan. For some people may only need a couple of sessions, while others may require a more ongoing and long-term plan.
What should I wear during a physio appointment?
It doesn’t matter if you dress up or down. Wear whatever you are comfortable in. If possible, bring something that will allow us the opportunity to treat the affected areas. Shorts may be the best option for you if you are experiencing knee pain.
Is physiotherapy covered by Medicare or any private health insurance?
It depends on your personal circumstances. 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.
