What should I expect?
Your physiotherapist will first sit down and discuss with you the reasons for making the appointment. After they have a thorough understanding of your concerns, they will then ask you to perform a series of movements and tests to help establish a working diagnosis. From there they may or may not refer you for further imaging or get started with treatment. Treatment may involve hands on manual therapy, dry needling or exercise therapy. Our goal from physiotherapy is for you to leave your consultation with a thorough understanding of your diagnosis and a process to get back to what you want to do.
Will my physiotherapist talk to other professionals about my care?
We always ask your consent to discuss your care and liaise with other health care professionals such as your GP, treating specialist or surgeon, personal trainer, sporting coach, sports physician or exercise physiologist. We find that in communicating with your support and health care team, your outcomes are far greater than if we were all working alone.
Why should I come to Alchemy over another clinic?
Alchemy offers clients a unique ‘one stop shop’ for health and wellness needs with a wide variety of holistic, multidisciplinary services such as podiatry, exercise physiology, sports and exercise medicine and remedial massage. As a team, we work together to support our clients to achieve their goals in a timely and efficient manner.
What should I bring to my appointment?
Bring whatever scans, referral letters and information that you might have relating to your injury. Wear comfortable clothing that the physio can see what region you are needing to be assessed (ie. shorts for a knee injury, sleeveless top for a shoulder injury).
Do I need a referral from my GP?
You may be eligible for a rebate through Medicare with a Chronic Disease Management Plan however, but this is to be decided by your GP.
If you have any questions regarding funding and rebates, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly admin team and they can talk you through your options.
