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.

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.

How expensive are sessions?

During your first visit at The ELiTe Wellness we will determine your program, and the costs you can expect. We are open and transparent in our planning with you.

Assessment: Your physiotherapist will ask you about your medical history, current symptoms, and any medications you are taking. They may also perform some physical assessments to understand your condition better.

Physiotherapist Impression: After the assessment, your physiotherapist will explain your diagnosis and the underlying causes of your symptoms.

Treatment Plan: Your physiotherapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs. This may include exercises, manual therapy, education on injury prevention, and other techniques.

Education: Your physiotherapist will educate you on how to perform exercises and other techniques correctly and safely.

Follow-Up: Your physiotherapist will schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.

You should consult a physiotherapist if you are experiencing the following:

• Pain or discomfort in your muscles, joints, or bones, especially if it has lasted more than a few days.
• Difficulty performing everyday activities such as walking, climbing stairs, or reaching overhead.
• Limited range of motion or stiffness in your joints.
• Recent injuries, such as a sprain, strain, or fracture.
• Chronic health conditions that affect your mobility, such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, stroke, or ageing.
• Pre or post-surgery, to help with recovery and rehabilitation.
• Sports-related injuries, such as a strain, sprain, or concussion.
• Chronic pain conditions such as back pain or fibromyalgia.

A physiotherapist can help you manage your symptoms, improve your mobility and function, and prevent future injury. It's always best to consult a physiotherapist to determine if physiotherapy is appropriate for your particular condition.

A typical session will take about 1 hour, but this may vary depending on the complexity of your condition.
