What is it?

When you injure a muscle, joint, tendon or ligament causing pain, stiffness or restricted movement, your doctor will most likely recommend a good Physiotherapist. After surgery or hospitalisation, physio’s are experts at rehabilitation and helping you get back to full health. Physio’s are trained to assess, diagnose, treat and help prevent a broad range of health conditions and movement disorders.

General practitioners refer more patients to physiotherapy than any other healthcare profession. That being said, you do not require a doctors referral to see a physiotherapist. Simply book an appointment online or call and make an appointment that is suitable for you.

What happens when you get treatment?

Your first appointment will be a longer appointment allowing your physio to understand your injury history, assess your condition and make an accurate diagnosis. At this point your practitioner will suggest some suitable treatment options and make some recommendations. Treatment of most musculoskeletal injuries or aggravations will generally require 3-6 visits, more if the condition is severe.

Your treatment could involve a combination of soft tissue techniques, manual therapy, lifestyle advice, therapeutic cold laser, homes exercises,  education and electro-physical modalities.

Why are we different?

Our practitioners are both holistic (focused on your whole body, not just your symptoms) and integrated (they work as a team where advantageous) in their treatment approach. Your physiotherapist works alongside chiropractic, podiatry, acupuncture and remedial massage and often co-treat to improve outcomes, at no extra cost to you. 

Utilising assessment and treatment techniques derived from latest research your physio is committed to providing the most suitable and effective treatment for your condition. 

Our physiotherapy team are members of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Australia and Sports Physiotherapy Australia. Updating their knowledge, skills and awareness of the latest advances in treatment assists them to offer the most current treatment techniques.

While you’re with us, you’ll enjoy:


  • Friendly, warm and helpful receptionists
  • Experienced Physiotherapists and Physio assistants
  • Individualised holistic care
  • Complementary tea and coffee
  • Minimal waiting times
  • Fully equipped rehab gym for when required
  • Both male and female physiotherapists to suit your preference
 

Physiotherapy services available:


Physiotherapy is heavily reliant on evidence-based research.  Our physiotherapists use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as:

  • Neuromusculoskeletal (back & neck pain, headaches, whiplash associated disorders, sports injuries, arthritis, osteoporosis, tennis elbow, carpel tunnel, sprains and joint problems)
  • Cardiovascular (chronic heart disease, rehabilitation after heart attack)
  • Respiratory (asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis)
  • Neurological (stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's)
 

Physiotherapy Telehealth


  • If you have ever used skype, facetime, messenger video, you will be able to do this – it’s essentially a video chat with a couple of extra cool features.
  • Our Physio's will still be able to diagnose, advise, educate, examine your movement and prescribe exercises.
  • Multiple clinical trials have demonstrated it is as effective as face to face care in terms of overall outcome.
  • It allows you to stay home for your safety (and potentially convenience).
  • You will have access to the physitrack messaging service (the program we use for telehealth) anytime after the consult in case you have any questions or have any difficulties.
  • If something goes wrong with the call or you are not satisfied with the service, then there will be no charge.
  • We will send you the information via email that walks you through the simple process of setting it all up.

Fees:

  • Existing Physiotherapy fees apply for telehealth appointments.
  • Medicare funded EPC appointments – the Department of Health has stipulated certain criteria for patients at risk of Covid-19, which if met, will trigger a bulk-billed Physiotherapy EPC appointment.  Please discuss these criteria with your Physiotherapist if you currently have an EPC plan.   
  • Health fund claiming – many health funds are now also rebating for telehealth appointments.  Please confirm with your own private health fund, should you be wanting to claim a rebate under your private health cover.

Why Choose Physiotherapy?


  • Physiotherapy adopts a multiple-systems approach to musculoskeletal 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 musculoskeletal 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 musculoskeletal 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 any exacerbation 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.
