Do I need a referral for Physiotherapy?

No. Physiotherapists in Australia are “first contact” professionals, this means that they are trained to assess and diagnose an injury or complaint. If the problem is outside of their area of expertise they will refer onto the appropriate professional.

Is the Physio a hands-on professional?

Achieve Physiotherapy has always been a hands- on professional service. The Physio will take a clear, in depth history from the client. They will then perform an objective examination which usually requires performing certain movements and tests on the client. Both these examinations will provide information to the therapist as to the diagnosis of the problem. They will then formulate and deliver a treatment plan which involves the use of various modalities of treatment which often include trigger point therapy as well as other forms of hands- on massage techniques.
