When Should I See a Physiotherapist?

If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort, or if you have a mobility issue, it’s a good idea to consult with a physiotherapist. They can assess your condition and provide guidance on the best course of action.

Depending on your condition, a physio may also be able to provide some pain relief through targeted massage and stretches. 

What Conditions Can Physiotherapy Treat?

Physiotherapy is effective for a wide range of conditions, including musculoskeletal issues, sports injuries, chronic pain, and rehabilitation after surgery. It can also address issues like posture, balance, and general well-being.

At SYSSM, we treat all of these and more with a range of techniques and methods. We’ll start with a consult to determine your condition, its cause, and what the best course of action is for treatment.

What to Expect from My First Session?

In your initial session, your physiotherapist will conduct a thorough assessment, discuss your medical history, and understand your goals. This helps tailor a personalised treatment plan that suits your needs.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?

The number of sessions varies based on your condition and treatment goals. Your physiotherapist will discuss this with you after the initial assessment and continually assess your progress.

Length of treatment can vary from a few appointments to sessions over several months, and even longer to ongoing years-long treatments that can be beneficial for things like chronic conditions.

How Long Does a Physio Session Last?

A typical physiotherapy session usually lasts around 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your treatment plan. This allows sufficient time for assessment, treatment, and any necessary exercises.

How Many Days a Week Should I Do Physio?

The frequency of physio sessions depends on your condition and treatment plan. Your physiotherapist will provide guidance, but typically, sessions may be scheduled one to three times a week.

How Long Does it Take for Physio to Start Working?

The time it takes to see results varies, but many patients experience improvement after a few sessions. Consistency with exercises and following your physiotherapist’s advice enhances the effectiveness of the treatment.

Does Medicare Cover Physiotherapy?

Medicare doesn’t typically cover physiotherapy sessions unless you have a chronic condition under a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan. It’s advisable to check with our team or your healthcare provider for detailed information based on your situation.

If you have private health insurance, however, many plans include physiotherapy in their benefits. Check with your insurance provider to find out how much you can claim on your appointments with us.
