Face-to-Face Physiotherapy Consultations

What does the physio service include?

Examination

Consultations begin with a discussion to get an understanding of the presenting condition, the patient, their goals and expectations of what they are looking to achieve and what they are looking to actually get out of physiotherapy. This is followed up by a physical examination to further identify the problems contributing to the presenting complaint.

Diagnosis & Treatment Plan

Patients will be presented with a clinical diagnosis and given an understanding on whats actuallly going on and how it may have occurred in the first place

Solutions are provided on how both, they the patient and the physio can best manage their condition

How Long are we doing this dance for? Patients leave with an idea on how long their physio journey will be and when they can get back to doing what they love and being where they want to be.

Alex takes a collaborative approach with his patients to devise a treatment plan that outlines the strategies and steps to progress patients back to where it is they want to get back to, whether its back to playing sport, studying or enjoying their hobbies.

All treatment plans are communicated with parents/carers of students to ensure they are up to date and know the direction we're headed and timelines of when

Treatment Approach

Alex strives to empower his patients to take control of thier problem and become a leader in their own treatment and rehabilitation to accomplish their goals and achieve optimal outcomes. He integrates a combination of hands-on therapy, movement re-training, exercise therapy, dry needling and taping to help eliminate pain, improve mobility and movement quality, strength and functional capacity, keeping it specific & centred around each individual.

If they are not working on improvement in the clinic room, they may be in the gym, courts or sporting field working on higher level strength, agility, cardiovascular fitness and functional capacity.

Customised & Tailored Exercise Program

Patients are provided with a customised exercise program including self-management techniques and strategies.These programs are accessible online with the program "Physitrack" complete with video demonstrations of the prescribed exercises, which are also emailed out to patients and respective parents and careers if appropriate.
