To individualise treatment for you, a comprehensive history will be taken of your current injury or problem, your previous injuries/surgeries, goals, medications, beliefs, occupation, physical activity levels and general health. Some questions might be sent through before your consultation to help with preparing for your session.

During the assessment, we might ask you to expose the painful area so that we are able to view any muscle bulk differences, subtle movements or other signs of pathology. We use the latest technology to be able to objectively measure your strength and how you move during your painful tasks, so we ask that you bring comfortable clothing to your sessions.

A treatment plan will be created collaboratively with your physiotherapist on the way to best manage your presentation.

Treatment options can include education about managing/changing your exercise or work load, rehab exercises, hands-on treatment such as joint mobilisations and massage, clinical rehabilitation sessions, or hydrotherapy.

We see a large variety of different injuries and pain at the clinic, including but not limited to;

  • Shoulder, hip, knee and ankle pain
  • Running-related injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Neck, back and spinal pain
  • Muscle strains
  • Headaches and vertigo (BPPV)
  • Osteoarthritis pain
  • Pre and post-surgery rehabilitation

No, you do not need a referral to see a physiotherapist.

Yes – physiotherapy is covered under most private health insurances, however we recommend checking with your specific private health insurances to avoid disappointment.

Our initial consultations are 45minutes long to allow more time for our patients to tell their stories. Subsequent consultations are 30-40minutes long, depending on your needs.

This depends on your symptoms, goals, general health and contributing factors. For example, it might take a longer period of rehabilitation for a long-standing injury, or if you have a high number of contributors to your pain such as decreased strength, movement control, mobility etc.

Initial physiotherapy consultation
45 minutes

These sessions are used to gain an understanding of your specific problem, including an assessment of contributing factors and preparing an individualised treatment plan based on our findings. Depending on your presentation and goals, there will likely be hands-on treatment to help with your pain in this session.

Extended physiotherapy subsequent consultation

These longer follow up sessions are best suited to those with a complex history and multiple problem areas, or those who require further strength testing, running analysis or hands-on treatment.

Similar to the standard subsequent session, we will answer any questions you have from the initial consultation, review your progress and progress your rehab exercises.
