What does a Physiotherapist do?

Physiotherapists are university educated healthcare professionals trained to assess, diagnose, treat and prevent disease and disability through physical means.
.
Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function who work with their patients, assisting them to overcome pain, stiffness and injury, which may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or as a result of ageing.
.
A physiotherapist can also help you prevent further injury by listening to your needs and working with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals, treatment outcomes, prevention programs and home exercises.

What to Expect

An initial consultation at Cardinia Physio & Fitness consists of you being interviewed by the Physiotherapist in a private room.  This allows the Physio to gather all the relevant information regarding your complaint.
.
Following this discussion the physiotherapist will then observe your movement and perform special tests to further determine the cause of your problem. Techniques which may include massage, joint mobilisation or stretching will then be used to treat your condition and if appropriate. You may then be given a small series of exercises to complete at home to supplement the treatment.
.
Our physiotherapists allow 40 minutes for an initial consultation and 20 minutes for a follow up consultation so you are not rushed and have adequate time to be treated thoroughly and ask any questions.
