Are you attending our clinic for the first time?
After booking your initial appointment, we would greatly appreciate if you could arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment to allow time to complete all relevant and necessary New Patient Information Forms.
When you attend your first appointment, please remember to bring the following if you have it on hand:
What will happen during your initial consultation?
Your initial consultation with our practitioners will involve an assessment between 30-40 minutes depending on the complexity of your condition. Patients seeking Exercise and Dietetics consultations you will need to allow from 40 minutes up to 1 hour depending on the complexity of your case.
During the initial appointment the practitioner will have a comprehensive discussion with you in regards to your condition. Following on from this a comprehensive evaluation of your health condition will be undertaken from your practitioner. This may include specific orthopaedic or functional testing from your musculoskeletal practitioner or other more broad evaluations if you are seeing our Dietitian or Exercise Physiologist.
During your first session education of your condition will be discussed with you and if you are seeing our Physiotherapist or Podiatrist treatment will begin usually during the first session (depending on the condition or complexity, for example if we require further imaging or information this may be held off until the second session at times). If seeing our Exercise Physiologist they will work with you on implementing an exercise strategy plan or program to begin moving towards your goals with you. Our Dietitian will educate you to specific changes to your diet and work towards developing a treatment plan with you over coming sessions should you require that input and depending on your individual issue or condition. Our massage therapist will begin providing you with relief from the initial session and work with you to ensure you begin to feel better ASAP!
