Physiotherapy Appointment

For new patients, a written referral is required from your consultant, GP, physiotherapist, midwife or other health professional.

For return patients, please ring the clinic (03) 977 5977 to book an appointment.

An initial appointment takes up to 60 minutes:

It will involve a detailed assessment of your presenting complaint, including relevant past medical history, medications and physical / social activities. A physical assessment may involve examining the abdomen, spine, pelvis, hip joints and pelvic floor. At the conclusion of the assessment, an explanation of the findings will be given and a management programme will be discussed which meets your goals and expectations. This will include education about your pelvic health issue, application of physiotherapy treatments and a home programme. The home programme is very important, and often will determine whether you will achieve the results you want.

Follow up appointments take up to 30-45 minutes: 

The numbers of treatment sessions vary depending on the presenting complaint but often only 3-4 sessions spread over several months is all that is required. In some cases a referral to another health professional may be recommended such as a gynaecologist, urologist, colorectal surgeon, dietician, psychologist or counsellor. This will be discussed with you and a referral made with your consent.
