Appointments & Fees

What to expect at your first appointment:

Allow 1 hour for your initial consultation. The physiotherapist will ask many questions about your specific condition, your general health and lifestyle. This is to be able to fully understand your condition and find out what your aim of treatment is. The physiotherapist will then do a physical examination. With your consent, this may involve exposing the relevant area to assess your range of movement, strength and general function.

At the end of the assessment, the physiotherapist will discuss an appropriate plan to treat you and together you will set goals for a successful outcome.

To assist us at your first appointment:

  •  Please arrive 5-10 minutes early so that you can complete a short information form
  •  Write a list of what you would like to discuss at the time of your appointment so that we don't leave anything out.
  •  Bring a list of all your prescription and non-prescription medications
  •  Wear appropriate clothing
  •  Bring any referral letters or relevant x-rays or reports with you
  •  Bring your private health insurance card if you have one
