FAQ:

Physiotherapists have a wide range of treatment modalities at their fingertips. From ultrasound to exercise prescription to mobilisations to massage and stretching. They are able to help with most injuries and tightness. You should see a Physiotherapist when you first start getting symptoms. This will ensure the fastest recovery possible.

No, you don’t need a referral to see a Physiotherapist privately at Advantage Healthcare & Physiotherapy. Your doctor may give you a referral if you have a chronic condition, which gives you access to some treatments under Medicare.

This will depend on your individual condition and severity. Your physiotherapist should be able to give you an idea of how many treatments you will need at your first appointment.

If your physiotherapist suspects some more serious injury, they may refer you for some imaging. Physiotherapists can refer you directly for a selection of X-Rays, but if Ultrasounds or MRI’s are required, your physiotherapist will request this from your GP.

First and foremost, just yourself! If you have any scans or reports of your injury bring those along. Wear comfortable and loose clothing that allows the Physiotherapist to treat your concerning area. We will get you to fill out a new client form when you arrive which contains some general information about you and your health. Please also bring along your private health card and a method for paying the gap fee.
