What to Expect From Your Physiotherapy Appointment

physiotherapy Croydon

Our bodies can do amazing things, from running a marathon to simply getting us up out of bed every morning. Your bones, muscles, and tendons interact to form a complex system that keeps you fit and moving all day long. However, we are (unfortunately) not superhumans. From time to time, all bodies break down. An injury that you thought was minor could turn into a chronic condition that prevents you from doing the things that you love. 

People who have suffered through pain and stiffness for years often forget what it’s like to enjoy a full range of movement. Here at Freedom Sports Medicine, we are passionate about getting all our patients back on their feet. Our experienced and highly trained team strives to help you achieve your personal peak performance, whatever that might look like. 

If you’ve never attended a physiotherapy appointment before, you might be a little apprehensive or unsure of what the process involves. This article will break down exactly what to expect from the appointment itself and post-treatment. The team at Freedom Sports Medicine aims to empower our patients by providing them with all the information they need to make an informed decision about their health and wellbeing.

So what are you waiting for? Read on to discover exactly what to expect from your physiotherapy in Croydon appointment, and then go ahead and make a booking!

Our physiotherapy philosophy

As a leading provider of physiotherapy in Croydon, we believe in providing our patients with a holistic and tailored service. We see health as being multi-faceted. Treating musculoskeletal conditions involves far more than providing physical therapy. We spend time getting to know our patients so that we can provide personalised treatment that gets to the root cause of the issue.

We also believe in educating our patients. By developing a step-by-step, evidence-based plan, you will understand exactly where you are in your treatment journey and how long it will be before you are back to performing at your physical best.

Our physiotherapists are highly trained and work under our expert APA qualified Exercise and Sports physio Ross Kinsella. We have experience treating individuals of all ages and backgrounds who are suffering from all types of conditions.

Our programs are tailored to you, setting us apart from other physiotherapists who follow a ‘one-size fits all’ philosophy.

The appointment itself

Freedom Sports Medicine is located in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne and we treat patients from all surrounding regions. Our state of the art treatment rooms enable our physiotherapists to listen to your concerns in a safe and welcoming 1:1 environment. All appointments run for a minimum of 30 minutes.

In the appointment, your physio will ask a range of questions designed to help tailor a treatment plan that is appropriate for your goals and abilities. Their questions will focus on three key areas:

Results: What do I hope to achieve? Why?

Reality: What is wrong with me? How did this injury or condition occur? What impact is it having on my day to day and sporting life?

Roadblocks: What is preventing me from getting back to the level of physical fitness that I previously enjoyed?

Having established the answers to these questions, our physios will be able to produce a personalised plan that will have you back on your feet in no time.
