FAQs
Physiotherapy is treatment to restore, maintain, and make the most of a patient’s mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy helps through physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. Physiotherapists get you involved in your own recovery.
Physiotherapists study the science of movement. They learn how to pinpoint an injury’s root causes.
Think about getting physiotherapy if you have an injury, or chronic pain that affects how you function everyday. A doctor may refer you to physiotherapy after surgery such as a hip replacement, or an event such as a heart attack or stroke.

Physiotherapists focus on both prevention and rehabilitation. Treatment can be for problems caused by injury, disease or disability. Here are some examples:
  • Neck and back pain caused by problems in the muscles and skeleton.
  • Problems in the bones, joints, muscles and ligaments, such as arthritis and the after-effects of amputation.
  • Disability as a result of heart problems.
  • Pelvic issues, such as bladder and bowel problems related to childbirth.
  • Loss of mobility because of trauma to the brain or spine, or due to diseases such as:
  • Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
  • Fatigue, pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of muscle strength, for example during cancer treatment, or palliative care.
Your session will be unique, because it is all about you and your particular needs. In general, here’s what happens:
  • The physiotherapist learns about your medical history.
  • The physiotherapist assesses and diagnoses your condition.
  • You receive a treatment plan that sets goals for you.
  • You are prescribed a course of exercises and any assistive devices needed.
You can expect a respectful and professional experience with a physiotherapist (PT). The physiotherapist will need to ask some questions about your problem and may need to understand other health issues you might have that could impact recovery.
The PT will try to understand what your goals are, they will explain how they will assess you and ask for your consent before they start. After the assessment, the physiotherapist will explain what physiotherapy can help you with, how long it might take and the expected outcome from the treatment.
Again, as a patient you will be asked to consent to a physiotherapist assessing you and developing a treatment plan. PTs will get you involved your own recovery and should never proceed with treatment if you are uncomfortable.
When you book an appointment with or visit a physiotherapist for the first time you want to feel informed and have the information you need to make good decisions about your health.
And don’t forget that you can always contact the College’s Practice Advisor to ask questions about physiotherapy. The Practice Advisor provides a free service to anyone looking for information about physiotherapy.
Consider Asking Your Health Care Provider:
  • What should I expect on my first visit?
  • How long will my appointment be?
  • What should I wear?
  • Will it hurt?
  • How many appointments will I need to get better?
  • How much will it cost? And how will I need to pay?
  • Is the physiotherapist registered? Be sure to look the person up on the Public Register before your first appointment.
No, you can access physiotherapy without a doctor’s referral.
At HEAL, physiotherapists are not employed unless they have produced valid education & registration documents. Our HR manager has copies of their registrations and License. We also actively train our physio before they work with any patients.
Physiotherapists are qualified to treat all spinal problems. In fact a large percentage of their workload is made up of back and neck problems.
We are normally able to offer you an appointment within 24 hours - often on the same day.
The initial assessment is normally 15-20 minutes, with a follow up treatment lasting upto 45 minutes.
There is no pre-determined number of treatments for a specific conditions, but following your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will discuss and agree a treatment plan with you. They should be able to give you an approximate guide at this point.
Your physiotherapist will need to see the affected body part, for lower limbs bring shorts.
