When you come for physiotherapy you want to know 3 things. What’s going on? How can it be treated? When will I get better?
Understanding the person, their experience of the problem affecting them and using my physiotherapy knowledge, skills and techniques I help patients address common painful neuro-musculoskeletal conditions e.g. joint pain, muscular injury, nerve pain. As a first contact practitioner I help my clients understand the what, how and when.
Treatment techniques depend on the best evidence available, safety, client’s preference and previous experience. The aim is to reduce pain, increase movement and restore functional ability. They can include advice and education on the condition, “hands on” therapy, needling, laser, functional exercise and behavioural change. Integral skills to develop new (healthy) habits, better movement control or mind-body links form part of this.
If hypnotherapy or neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) techniques are needed to reach your goals they can be included too. Each person receives their individual prescription to go from recovery and beyond!
At the first assessment, I ask lots of questions and ask for background information on your health and activities, as well as about your experience of the problem.
Completing the Pre-Assessment and terms and conditions form in advance helps to ensure that your session time is maximised. The information contributes to the comprehensive picture about you, so that you receive the most appropriate advice and treatment. It takes around 45 and 60 minutes. You can ask questions any time and you receive a take-home action plan. On subsequent sessions (25 minutes) we always start with a reassessment and ensure that the plan is working for you and then get to work with treatment.
How Does This Work?
By working with the people involved, observing and testing the task (task analysis), checking out someone’s physical capability for a task or role, I understand where the problem lies, and alongside the organisation and the person work out the best value solutions to resolve the problem.
Occupational physiotherapy helps organisations to build and sustain good health in the workplace: personal carers, tradies on-site, office workers, housekeepers etc. If someone in your organisation reports pain and difficulty in performing activities, needs regular sick leave after doing certain tasks or there have been accidents and “near misses”, an Occupational Physiotherapy On-site assessment can help to resolve these issues.
