Figuring out if and when to see a Physiotherapist for your injuries, aches and pains can be a tricky decision to make. Especially if you’ve never seen a physiotherapist before and aren’t too sure what we do or when you should contact us for treatment.
Below are what we believe to be the common signs and symptoms of when you should seek out physio:
- You’ve been struggling with a recurrent injury
- Your mobility has declined over the years
- You suffer with long term conditions like arthritis or osteoarthritis
- If you’re at risk of developing neck and back issues (such as if you’re an offer worker at a desk all day)
All of these you do not need a referral from your doctor for you can book an appointment with us directly.
Some of these aches and pains and injuries may be subsidized by ACC or they may need to be a private consult.
Physiotherapists can help you get back to doing what you love whether that be running, tennis, golf or simply being able to walk and sit down more comfortably! We are experts in injury assessment, treatment, and management, whether your injury is posture-related, exercise-related, work-related… the list goes on and on!
