What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is one way to improve your movement and feeling. 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 are many physiotherapy treatments that may suit you, such as dry needling, massage and joint mobilisation. We work together to find the best form of treatment that suits you. Remember, this is your body. You’re the one who controls it and we are here to support you manage it.

Your life can take on a new meaning by using physiotherapy. In time, this may enable you to truly live your life again in a manner that brings you joy. If you want to play sport, keep up with the grandkids, or enjoy walks with your dog, physiotherapy can help you!

No matter your age, condition, injury, or profession, physiotherapy can be a powerful tool to make the most of your mobility and well-being. Physiotherapy could be the right treatment for you, whether you’re a student or an office worker or senior citizen.

What to Look Forward To On Your Physio Appointment?

Physiotherapists are professionals in the musculoskeletal system and are often recommended by GPs for their ability to reduce stiffness and pain. Physiotherapists can serve people with many conditions. We are the team to call if you feel something is ‘not quite right’ or you need some extra support.

A consultation is a thorough evaluation and informed diagnosis. It also includes a discussion about your medical history. Even if the patient has the same condition, no two treatment plans will be created the same. This goes to show that physiotherapy is all about you. Your treatment options can be varied and should be discussed with your physiotherapist before you begin treatment.

Your physiotherapist should develop treatment and management plans that suit your needs so that together, you can address the specific problems you are experiencing. 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 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.

Your Physiotherapy Questions Answered

Do I need a referral in order to visit a physical therapist?
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. A Pinch Of Physiotherapy physiotherapists work with other healthcare professionals, such as dentists, podiatrists, GPs, and naturopaths. We are happy to accept Enhanced primary care plans from your treating doctor.
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. 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 physio sessions will I need?
Your individual goals, needs and condition will determine how many treatments you need. Some people may only require a few sessions while others might need an ongoing, long-term treatment plan.
What should I wear during a 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 any private health insurance?
It depends on your personal 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?
Contact us if you are unsure if physiotherapy might be right for you. Our physios will meet with you to evaluate your needs and assist you to choose the most beneficial treatment option for you.
