Australian physiotherapists are registered health professionals with university qualifications. Physiotherapists assess, diagnose and treat people with movement problems. They also help people avoid injuries and maintain a fit, healthy body.

Physiotherapy management of your musculoskeletal problem involves;

  • Asking questions about your physical condition and general health. There will be some questions about how your injury is impacting on you personally. The more information you can provide, the more likely the physiotherapist can provide an effective treatment. If you feel uncomfortable with a particular question or group of questions please let us know.
  • Observing and assessing your movement. In most cases, physiotherapy does require physical contact and some exposure of your body. Your physiotherapist shall endeavor to protect your modesty as best as possible by using towels and blankets but please let us know if you feel uncomfortable at any time.
  • Develop a treatment program with you discussing treatment options and goals.
  • Provide information about your problem and physiotherapy program.
  • Respect your rights, dignity, privacy, feelings and cultural customs.
  • Communicate with other health professionals including your Doctor as appropriate.
