What do Olympic Athletes, Professional Dancers, and Rugby players have in common? The answer is that physiotherapy is their first choice of treatment for soft tissue injuries.
From recovery after a work incident, car accident or sports injury, to post-operative rehabilitation and beyond – PhysioChoice can help.
We believe this is because all physiotherapists undergo 4 years of thorough university level education, giving us a very detailed understanding of the human body, what can go wrong, and how to fix it.
Physiotherapy uses up to date research-based techniques to help restore movement and function when injury, disability, surgery, or health issues have resulted in a loss of function, movement restrictions, or pain.
For you and your family, you can be assured of:
- A thorough assessment.
- An accurate diagnosis – explained to you in terms that you’ll understand.
- Safe, effective treatment.
- Complete management of your condition.
How we can help
An initial assessment will include lots of questions from the Physiotherapist to gather as much information as possible about you, your injury or problem, and your restrictions or limitations. From there, we will progress to fully assessing the problem area(s) and in order to do this properly we need to see the body part and surrounding region, so you may be asked to remove outer clothing. For lower limb problems, shorts are a great idea, but if you don’t have any, we do have gowns and shorts available. We maintain privacy and dignity at all times.
We work closely with other health professionals to ensure an integrated approach in your treatment, including surgeons, GPs, sports specialists, midwives, podiatrists, radiologists/sonographers, massage therapists, schools, ACC, and team coaches to name but a few!
We are also able to refer for ultrasound scans (including cortisone injections) and x-rays, and directly refer to surgeons if it is appropriate. We’ll discuss this with you and include you in all of the decision making about your care – at the end of the day, it’s your body and no-one knows it better than you; we’re here to offer guidance and support using the best of our knowledge and capabilities.
