Frequently Asked Questions
Physiotherapists are qualified healthcare professionals who help people of all ages restore movement and function when they are affected by injury, illness or disability. Physiotherapists assess, diagnose, and treat various health conditions. In the long-term, physiotherapists can help people to maintain their health, manage their pain and prevent disease and disability, whilst emphasizing a holistic approach that involves the patient directly in their own care and treats the body as a whole.

Initial assessments are 40 minutes – they are longer as there is a process of getting to know you, your lifestyle, your goals to help with the diagnosis of the problem, and treatment plan moving forward.
Physiotherapy review sessions are 20 minutes – as we can get straight to assessing and reviewing the treatment provided in the first session.
Note that you can have a mixture of initial assessments and reviews no matter how long you have been with us, dependent on what you need for your physiotherapy issue.
When you have a constant niggle in your neck after work, sore back from driving or swollen hands from hammering; surgeries, medications and scans only forms part of the picture as it provides you with what is wrong but less on how you manage the new condition whilst returning to daily life.
We as physiotherapists want you to return to your community activities, return to work, sports, gardening, push the boundaries to run that marathon or have pain managed whilst looking after loved ones as best you can after a setback.
We work from pain management of conditions to achieving wellness and improving your quality of life for the long term.
