Do I need a doctor’s referral to book a physio appointment?
No, a referral from a GP is not necessary to book a physio appointment. You can book directly with us online or, if you’re not sure what you need, give us a call and our friendly team will be happy to help.
Is physio covered by private health insurance?
Yes, physio is covered by private health insurance. However, it is important to check with your individual insurer to see what level of cover you have and whether there are any restrictions on the type of physio treatment you can receive.
What can I expect from my first physio appointment?
At your first appointment, your physiotherapist will take a comprehensive history and ask about your current symptoms, medical history and any previous injuries or surgery.
They will then conduct a physical examination to assess the cause of your pain or injury. Based on this information, they will develop a treatment plan aimed at reducing your pain and helping you regain normal movement and function.
What techniques do physiotherapists use?
Our physiotherapists use a range of different techniques to treat our patients, depending on their individual needs. These may include manual therapy (such as massage and joint mobilisation), clinical Pilates and exercises prescribed specifically for your condition.
We also use modalities such as heat/cold therapy and ultrasound to help reduce pain and inflammation.
What facilities does your physio clinic have on-site?
Our stand-alone physiotherapy clinic is fitted out with exercise and clinical Pilates equipment for our patients to use as part of their personalised treatment plans. We also have a second clinic located inside the Five Dock Medical Centre, giving us access to x-ray and radiology facilities as well as allowing interaction with other health professionals including GPs and allied health.
How often do I need to see a physio?
How often you see a physiotherapist varies, depending on your condition, goals and the treatment required. During your initial consultation, your physio will complete a detailed analysis of your condition, symptoms and movement to identify the underlying cause of your pain, injury or discomfort.
From this, we will tailor a personalised treatment plan aimed at reducing pain and restoring function as quickly and safely as possible. Your physio will advise on how often you should come in for treatment, as well as any at-home stretching or exercises that may assist.
