5 Important Questions to ask your Physical Therapist
Ask your physical therapist about their qualifications and special interests.
In Australia, all physiotherapists must have a university physiotherapy degree and be registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. Each physiotherapist will have their own unique skillset, experiences and special interests, which can help you decide if they are the best physiotherapist for you. Our physiotherapists have skills ranging from neck and back pain to sports injuries, vertigo, women’s health and jaw pain amongst others.
Ask your physical therapist about the services they offer.
It is important to know what services your physiotherapist can offer you. Our physiotherapists offer a range of treatment options such as manual therapy, massage, blading, exercises, acupuncture and dry needling amongst others. We also offer several types of exercise classes as well as individual consultations.
Ask your physiotherapist for some exercises

Ask your physiotherapist for some advice on activities of daily living
Some simple advice about how we do certain tasks such as vacuuming, sitting and lying in bed can have a significant impact on how fast we recover from pain. Your physiotherapist can give you excellent advice about how to perform tasks around the house, as well as what you can do regarding physical activity.
