About Your Appointment
What should I expect during my appointment?
After introducing themselves, the Physiotherapist will want to find out what you hope to achieve from your physio treatment. They’ll ask you What your goals are, and why this is important to you. By knowing this, it can help guide the session around the most important things to be focused on during the assessment and provide you with a diagnosis and plan if we can help. The practice uses an electronic note system and we may be typing notes on the computer during the appointment. This will involve asking questions about any pain or weakness you may be having and any history around it. The Physiotherapist will be interested in your occupation and tasks required, and also what hobbies you have that may be affected by your complaint.
What should I wear?
Comfortable loose clothing is advised if you are being seen for physiotherapy to treat lower back pain.If you are being treated for foot and ankle physiotherapy, then shorts are advised. If you get problems when wearing certain footwear, it may also be useful to bring them with you to the Physiotherapy or Podiatry appointment. If shoulders, upper and lower back will need to be seen, we advise women to wear a singlet or a bra that they are comfortable in. Towels are always provided for additional comfort.
Are there any forms to fill out?
We require all clients to complete a consent to treat form and fill out the appropriate section on the form if it is an ACC claim. This will collect some personal details and some basic medical history which will remain confidential at all times. We are now sending these electronically prior to your appointment and the more info you can provide the better! However we are able to provide a paper option for those that need it.
Can I bring someone with me for support?
You are very welcome to bring someone with you for support during your appointment.
