Q. What happens on my first visit?
Ans. On your initial consultation, a thorough subjective and objective examination of your condition will be performed by one of our Physiotherapists. The hands-on’ assessment will allow us to structure a suitable treatment plan through various treatment modalities. We ask that you bring any relevant medical information including the treating doctor’s prescription (e.g. doctor’s reports, X-ray reports, etc) for the Physiotherapist to review before assessing your problem.

We also believe and follow the principles of close professional exchange of treatment planning & protocols with your primary physician or treating surgeon to ensure the best possible outcome with the least amount of suffering and in the shortest possible time frame.

If you have multiple areas or a complex problem it is best to allow 60 minutes for a comprehensive assessment to be completed (please let our reception staff know this at the time of booking).

Q. How often will I need to come for treatment?
Ans. Depending on the type of injury, its severity, and your sporting or work commitments, the number of treatments required and their frequency will vary. Your Physiotherapist will discuss this with you on your initial consultation to give you a guide. Your physiotherapist will give you exercises to help manage your condition yourself. This will help to reduce the number of treatments you require.

Q. What is Core Stability?
Ans. Core stability is the balance and coordination of the muscles of the trunk to ensure that the peripheral limbs have a stable base to work off. Training in this area can promote muscular efficiency which can prevent injuries as well as reducing injury recurrence. Pilates or core stability training is also successfully used in the management of long-term back and neck pain.
