What’s the difference between physiotherapy and physiotherapy exercise?
Physiotherapy is a broad healthcare field involving the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of physical ailments and disabilities.
It includes various treatment methods such as manual therapy, ultrasound, and acupuncture. Physiotherapy exercise, or therapeutic exercise, is a subset of physiotherapy. These are specific exercises prescribed by a physiotherapist to improve movement, strengthen muscles, and promote healing.
They are tailored to individual needs, and are essential for rehabilitation and preventing further injuries. If you’re wondering how we work from start to end, here’s all you need to know before making an appointment.
When Should I Go See A Physio?
You should consider seeing a physiotherapist if you experience pain, discomfort, or difficulty in movement affecting your daily activities. It’s also advisable to consult a physiotherapist after sustaining an injury, undergoing surgery, or if you have chronic conditions like arthritis. Early intervention by a physio can prevent conditions from worsening and can expedite the recovery process. They can also provide guidance on managing long-term health conditions and offer preventive advice.
How Can I Book A Session With MNCAH?
Booking a session with Mid North Coast Allied Health is straightforward and convenient. You can visit our website and use the online booking system to select a time and location that suits you. Alternatively, you can call our clinic directly to schedule an appointment. Our friendly staff will guide you through the process, answer any initial queries, and ensure that you are booked with the appropriate physiotherapist for your specific needs.
What To Expect From My First Session?
In your first session, expect a comprehensive assessment where the physiotherapist will discuss your medical history, symptoms, and goals. They will conduct a physical examination to understand your condition better. Based on this assessment, they will develop a personalised treatment plan which may include exercises, manual therapy, and education about your condition. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
The number of physiotherapy sessions you need depends on various factors, including the nature and severity of your condition, your goals, and how your body responds to treatment. After your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will provide a Client Assessment Report. Some conditions may require only a few sessions, while others might need longer-term management.
How Long Does A Physio Session Last?
A typical physiotherapy session at Mid North Coast Allied Health can last between 30 (standard initial) to 60 (extended) minutes. The duration depends on the type of treatment you’re receiving and the complexity of your condition. Some sessions may be shorter if they are more focused, while others, especially initial assessments or more comprehensive treatments, may take longer.
How Many Days A Week Should I Do Physio?
The frequency of physiotherapy sessions will be tailored to your specific needs. For acute injuries or post-operative care, more frequent sessions might be recommended, such as two to three times a week. For chronic conditions or long-term rehabilitation, sessions might be spaced out more, like once a week or biweekly. Your physiotherapist will advise the optimal frequency for your situation.
How Long Does It Take For Physio To Start Working?
The time it takes to see results from physiotherapy can vary. Some patients notice improvement after just a few sessions, while others may take longer to experience significant benefits. It depends on the type of injury or condition, the treatment plan, and individual factors like age, overall health, and commitment to prescribed exercises and advice. Consistency and following your physiotherapist’s recommendations are key to achieving the best results.
Does Medicare Cover Physiotherapy?
Yes, Medicare can cover your physiotherapy services if you meet certain eligibility criteria. Coverage often depends on your specific Medicare plan and the nature of your physiotherapy needs. It’s advisable to check with Medicare or GP for details about coverage and any out-of-pocket costs you might expect.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Have a Valid Medicare Card: You need to be an Australian citizen with a Medicare card. Medicare covers physiotherapy under specific conditions.
- Meet Health Requirements: If you have a chronic condition and are under a GP Management Plan and Team Care Arrangement, you could be eligible for physiotherapy through Medicare.
- Get a GP Referral: A referral from your GP is necessary. They will assess if your condition qualifies for Medicare-covered physiotherapy.
- Choose a Medicare-Approved Facility: Not all physiotherapists accept Medicare referrals. Confirm with the clinic before booking.
- Bring Necessary Documents to Your Appointment: Having your Medicare card and GP referral with you streamlines the process and avoids the need for later Medicare claims.
