What will Your Physio do?
At Coastal Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic, we understand that financial pressure is affecting everybody, for this reason we provide comprehensive physiotherapy treatment and get you better in as few sessions as possible… At your first session your physio will outline the approximate timeframe and cost of treatment. This would be dependent on the extent and type injury that you have sustained. We will also discuss the most cost effective options available to you regarding your treatment. We also offer HICAPS which allows you to claim your rebate from any Health Fund on the spot, this means you only need to pay the gap (approximately $25-50 depending on the fund and the cover.)
The First Physio Consultation
We provide thorough assessments for all our new clients to ensure accurate diagnosis and to develop a treatment plan. At your first visit we will take a history of your condition, perform an assessment and then treat you accordingly. We then give you a plan including an approximate time frame for recovery as well as how many treatments are likely to be needed. The fee will include all exercise programmes as well as all necessary advice offered. If you are referred by a doctor we will (with your permision) liase with the doctor.
This session will last approximately 40-60 min. For the assessment and treatment we have a selection of shorts and singlets for you to wear. If you feel more comfortable in your own you are welcome to bring these.
Follow up Physio Treatments
During the follow up treatment we will assess your response to the previous treatment and record your improvement in pain and movement. This is followed by a tailor made treatment including hands on techniques as well as giving you exercises to prevent recurrence of your injury.
This session takes approximately 30 min.
