Initial Physiotherapy Assessment

Your initial Physiotherapy assessment at MD Health involves a complete analysis of your injury or pain. This is extremely important as the biomechanical effects from one area may be contributing to another. For example, a typical case of back pain would involve assessing the lumbar spine, pelvis and hips, as all these areas can contribute to back pain.

Following your assessment our clinicians will provide a detailed explanation of the findings, then specific treatment will commence, which will come in different forms depending on what the issue is. Advice on how to manage this will also be provided.

 

Most conditions take longer than 1 session to make a significant change, this is why we include another 2 sessions complementary to  ensure we can get on top of your issue. If your issue gets better in less than 3 session – great! You have no obligation to attend the extra 2 sessions.
*Please note that this offer is not valid for TMJ (Jaw) issues.

What is the difference between a Physiotherapist and Accredited Exercise Physiologist?

At MD Health our clinical staff are both Accredited Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists. We often are asked what is the difference between these two professions…

Both Accredited Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists are University qualified Allied Health professionals that have four-five years of training to gain the knowledge and skills to treat and manage a wide range of health conditions. Accredited Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists have an in-depth knowledge of the human body and in particular the musculoskeletal system. In addition to this, they need also need to understand an individual’s medical history and any changes to ensure they are prescribing the appropriate exercises and/or treatment to deliver the best outcome for every client.

Every year all the clinical staff at MD Health must continue to complete professional development to be approved by their governing body and Medicare to continue to practice as an Allied Health practitioner.

But what is the difference between an Accredited Exercise Physiologist and Physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists are generally taught to assess and treat musculoskeletal injuries and pain management. However Physiotherapists can work in a wide range of sectors including neurology and cardio-respiratory health. Physiotherapists practice a combination of exercise rehabilitation and manual therapy, such as joint mobilisation, to achieve the best outcomes for their patients.

Accredited Exercise Physiologists also work in a variety of health sectors and generally focus on assessing, developing and implementing exercise programs for individuals with chronic conditions or injuries such as diabetes, cancer or musculoskeletal injuries. Accredited Exercise Physiologists also work on behavior changes to promote healthier lifestyles.

At MD Health our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists can both assess and treat injuries while helping to manage chronic conditions and help our clientele enhance their quality of life. Our team work collaboratively together so clients are able to see any practitioner and receive consistent and excellent care.
