What Physiotherapists do?

Physiotherapists are university qualified health professionals who will assess, diagnose, treat and prevent spinal, joint and muscular injuries.

Physiotherapists use their knowledge of normal movement patterns and the function of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments to determine if they are working correctly.

Physiotherapists are experts in the management of muscle and bone and spinal pain. You do not need a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist – just call and make an appointment.

Physiotherapists aim to restore normal movement and pain-free function with the use of manual physical treatments including joint mobilisation or manipulation if required, soft tissue release or deep massage, and corrective or strengthening exercises, complemented by advice and education on how you can manage your injury in your own home.

Our Correct Physiotherapist is experienced with a variety of injuries, and works daily at the elite sporting level during his roles with the Collingwood Football Club and Cricket Victoria. You can trust his professionalism and judgment when it comes to finding the solution to your problem

What to expect from your Physio appointment at Correct

Your physiotherapy consultation will involve:

  • 10-15 minutes of questioning and listening to your injury history and symptoms to identify the cause of your pain or problem
  • A range of clinical tests, which combined with your history and symptoms will be used to provide a diagnosis and timeline for recovery.  If a definitive cause of your pain cannot be identified in the fist session, the physiotherapist can provide you with a referral for X-Ray or scan.
  • Once a diagnosis is made, a treatment plan will be discussed and commenced in consultation with your wishes and treatment preferences
  • You will be shown exercises, stretches and techniques for pain management and injury resolution to complete at home
  • At the end of the session, expected duration of your symptoms, what to expect during the week, and a Plan B if the initial management is not successful, will be discussed.

An Initial appointment will last 45 minutes, and any subsequent appointments will be 30 minutes.  Any new injury will require another initial (45 minute) appointment.  This is significantly more time than usual physiotherapy appointments (usually 30 and 15 minutes) so you wont feel rushed or unimportant.  Our physio can guarantee you won’t be kicked out just because your time is up, if the injury needs more treatment, you will receive it!
