What is a Physiotherapist?
Physiotherapists are university trained and are experts in injury diagnosis, injury treatment, exercise prescription, injury prevention, rehabilitation and many other areas of health, sport and and fitness.
What do I need to bring?
Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history. If you have them and if they are relevant bring scan/MRI reports, and a list of all your medications (prescription and non-prescription). You may wish to bring shorts and t-shirt.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and the individual. After a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will discuss with you their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.
What should I wear to my appointment?
If we are treating your feet you will not be asked to undress but if we are treating your spine, you will need to undress. So wear comfortable and modest underwear or even a pair of shorts is appropriate so long as you feel at ease during your examination.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No. Physiotherapists can assess and treat you without referral from a doctor. However, most health insurers require a doctor's referral before they authorise the payment of fees, some only require a phone call.
Treatment duration depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairment, your past medical history and other factors. Re-evaluations will be done to assess your progress and your physiotherapist will communicate with your doctorto help you achieve your therapy goals.
We see and treat clients for a wide range of conditions and diagnoses. See our Services for an extensive list of conditions and diagnoses.
Our HICAPS terminal recognises most health funds. If there are any issues, we will be able to determine this. It is however important for you to know if you have extras cover on your private health to cover your physiotherapy expenses.
