WHAT IS A PHYSIOTHERAPIST?
Physiotherapists are highly qualified, university-trained health professionals who work in partnership with their patients to effectively treat physical injuries and ailments.
Our physios use advanced techniques and evidence-based care to assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders.

WHAT DOES A PHYSIOTHERAPY INVOLVE?
Your first appointment with one of our physios will act as the initial consultation. This is where we conduct a comprehensive assessment and develop a clear understanding of your physical health, the condition and your lifestyle. During this time, we also assess the injury and your movement capabilities.
Wear comfortable, loose clothing to your appointment. Your physio will need to look at your injury, so ensure you wear clothing that allows easy access to the injured area.
We do ask our patients to bring any relevant medical assessments of the injury (such as x-rays or MRI scan) to the first appointment.
Once we have all the necessary information, your physio will tailor a specific treatment plan to be started straight away. Your treatment might include remedial massage combined with exercises and stretches to perform at home. Anytime Physio also use clinical Pilates and reformer Pilates as part of our treatments. This is highly beneficial for injury recovery as Pilates helps improve posture, balance, strength, control and flexibility.
Depending on what’s needed, your physio may show you strategies for correct movement and comfortable sleeping positions while your injury heals. At the beginning stages of your treatment plan, more appointments will be needed. As you regain better movement and strength, your visits become less frequent.
