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 sport and health 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 list of medication. 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 individual. After a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will discuss 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 be so comfortable and modest underwear or even a pair of shorts is appropriate.
How do I make an appointment?
You can get in touch by phone ( +123 - 456 -7890 ) or use the form under the contact page. Alternatively use the quick and easy online booking page, which is the method we prefer.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No, physiotherapists can assess and treat without referral by a doctor. However most health insurers require a doctors referral before they authorise cover of fees, some only require a phone call.
Massage therapy is a form of treatment that involves manipulating the body's soft tissues to alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve overall wellness. Massage therapists use their hands, fingers, and sometimes other tools to apply pressure to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the body.
Massage therapy has many potential benefits, including reducing stress, relieving pain and tension, improving circulation, promoting relaxation, and boosting overall wellness. It can also help with specific conditions such as headaches, back pain, and sports injuries.
During a massage therapy session, you can expect to lie on a comfortable massage table, covered by a sheet or blanket. The therapist will use various techniques to manipulate your muscles and other soft tissues, and may ask you to move or stretch certain body parts to help with the treatment. You can ask the therapist to adjust the pressure or techniques used to make you more comfortable.
There are many types of massage therapy available, including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, sports massage, prenatal massage, hot stone massage, and more. Each type of massage therapy has its own unique benefits and techniques.
The frequency of massage therapy sessions can vary depending on your needs and goals. Some people may benefit from weekly or bi-weekly sessions, while others may only need occasional massages. Your massage therapist can work with you to determine the best frequency for your needs.
