New Patients

Please arrive at your appointment time 5 minutes early to complete necessary paperwork.

Please bring along any relevant investigatons (eg x-rays, scans).

It helps to wear loose clothing. Shorts are useful for back pain and lower limb assessments. Singlet tops are good for neck and shoulder assessments.

What happens at the first visit?

Your physiotherapist will welcome you to the clinic, listen to you, take notes and ask questions about your condition and general health. Any investigations (x-rays and scans) that you have brought with you will be viewed.

You will be guided through a physical examination to determine what the problem is. This may involve a posture assessment, measurement of joint movement, joint palpation, muscle palpation, tests of muscle length/strength, ligament stability tests and nerve function tests. You may have to partially disrobe; singlets or shorts are good clothes to wear. We have gowns and spare shorts if needed.

We will discuss your diagnosis, answer your questions and together with you make a treatment plan.

Hands on treatment is usually commenced in the first visit to reduce pain and improve movement and function. If your condition is complex, you may wish to book an hour for the first visit to enable more treatment time.

During your rehabilitation you will learn about your condition and learn exercises and strategies to facilitate recovery and to help manage your condition in the long term as well as prevent future episodes of your problem.
