What to expect when you visit PhysioWorks?
The PhysioWorks Difference
Your unhurried first visit will include a thorough and individualised assessment of your injury or problem. We will then be able to determine and inform you:
- What exactly is the problem
- Why you are experiencing pain or dysfunction
- What can be done to correct it
- How long it will take to recover
- How to prevent a future recurrence
Your personal physiotherapist will design a specific treatment program for you. Your treatment may include hands-on treatment, such as joint manipulation, mobilisation or massage, that only highly qualified physiotherapists can perform.
Your treatment will vary depending upon your age, sex, sport, work requirements or lifestyle. Electrotherapy such as ultrasound, laser, interferential etc may be utilised to assist pain relief and facilitate your healing rate.
You will be instructed on specific exercises and stretches for you to undertake at home to assist in your rapid recovery. We'll also offer you some helpful advice to help ease your pain, such as the appropriate resting positions or whether to use heat or ice and exactly for how long.
The end result is prompt pain reduction, quicker natural healing and your successful return to full activity, whether it be work or sport, as soon as possible.
How Long is Your Physiotherapy Appointment?
Allow at least one hour for your initial physiotherapy session. Subsequent treatments are usually 30 to 60 minutes in duration. Your physiotherapist will inform you if additional or less time is required. Knee and shoulder reconstruction sessions can take up to 90 minutes.
Do You Need a Referral?
A doctor's referral is not required to see a physiotherapist in private practice. We work closely with numerous doctors, who we are happy to liaise with on your behalf if required.
What About Private Health Insurance?
A proportion of treatment costs is rebatable under all higher table private health insurance schemes. PhysioWorks is linked to the HICAPS electronic health fund system so you can claim your rebate at the time of treatment and avoid those long queues in major shopping centres.
