A physiotherapist’s role is to diagnose the problem, help you understand what’s wrong and find a suitable treatment plan, taking into account your lifestyle, activities and general health.
Common methods used by physiotherapists include:
- Joint manipulation and mobilization to reduce stiffness and pain
- Postural correction
- Electrotherapy (Ultrasound/laser treatment)
- Soft tissue massage
- Acupuncture (Insertion of fine needles in specific areas on the body to reduce pain/illness)
- Hydrotherapy (Aerobics or similar exercise carried out in a body of water)
- Exercise programs to strengthen muscles and improve mobility
- Aids, splints, crutches, frames and wheelchairs as means of assistance
Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function, and can help patients recover from injury, reduce pain and increase mobility. They can also work out prevention strategies in line with the patient’s lifestyle to avoid problems in the future.
Depending on the injury and treatment plan, costs will vary from patient to patient. It is not uncommon for a patient to have a series of regular appointments, the first one a little longer than the others to allow the physiotherapist to assess and diagnose the problem. This initial appointment may take about an hour and cost $60-$120. Subsequent appointments are usually shorter, about 30-45 minutes and could cost anywhere from $50-$100. Depending on the patient’s health cover, they may be eligible for a rebate.
