Why Choose Physiotherapy?


  • Physiotherapy adopts a multiple-systems approach to musculo-skeletal disorders.  This means treating joints, muscles, nerve tissue and others.
  • Our Physiotherapists provide treatment of spinal pain (neck or back), sport injuries (such as tennis elbow or ankle sprains), neck-related headaches, whiplash injuries, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, overuse injuries etc.
  • Our Physiotherapists provide instruction on long term self management of chronic musculo-skeletal conditions.
  • Physiotherapy can enhance recovery from acute injuries.

Physiotherapy patients participate in a complete system of assessment and treatment, which aims at treating all of the different aspects of the condition.  Physiotherapists utilise broad varying techniques, which depend on the individual’s requirements.  The overall goal is to resolve symptoms, retrain altered movement patterns, and prevent recurrence.  Your treatment program will take into account the nature of your condition and your own personal commitments to provide you with the best possible outcome.

Consultations


Initial Consultations

Your first visit for any new problem will be a comprehensive consultation.  We cater for extra time, if needed, to fully assess your condition and ensure you receive the most effective treatment possible.  If you haven’t seen a Physiotherapist at our Practice before, it would be appreciated that you arrive ten minutes prior to your appointment to fill in a new patient form.

Each comprehensive consultation consists of a detailed discussion regarding your symptoms, assessment of different movements (which may require some degree of undressing), and some specific tests.  Once a diagnosis has been reached, treatment options will be discussed and carried out – keep in mind that you are a key player in the management of your condition.

Standard Consultations

Standard follow-up appointments with your physiotherapist include discussion on progress since the previous appointment and reassessment of problematic movements or positions before treatment continues

Post Consultation


At Tyack Health the physiotherapists are here to assist in complete recovery from your musculo-skeletal condition.  We believe that your care continues after you have left your appointment – you are a valued patient and will continue to be nurtured back to full health. This is why follow up appointments are sometimes recommended – so that the job isn’t left half-done!

As a patient of Tyack Health Centre’s Physiotherapy Department, you are invited to phone and speak directly with your practitioner concerning exacerbations of pain, difficulty with exercises and any other treatment-related questions you may have.  If the physiotherapist is unable to attend your call, all efforts will be made to contact you as soon as possible.
