Your Mobile Physiotherapist will arrive at your choice of destination and set up the treatment bed and equipment. The Physiotherapist will ask you a number of questions regarding your injury to gain an understanding of your problem.
An assessment will follow where you may be asked to make some basic movements. The physiotherapist will diagnose your problem and together will create a treatment plan that will assist you in decreasing your pain and getting your movement back.
Our physiotherapists are well trained in a variety of musculoskeletal (back pain, knee pain etc), neurological (MS, Parkinson’s disease etc) and respiratory conditions (COPD etc).
Your Mobile Exercise Physiologist (EP) will arrive at your choice of destination and go through a brief history of your medical condition to gain a deep understanding of how your condition is affecting you.
The EP will then put you through a number of simple tests such as 10m walk, standing up from a chair, measure your heart rate and blood pressure. An exercise program will be created and both you and the EP will go through the whole thing. You may be required to complete the program twice a week on your own until the EP visits you again and gives you a new bunch of exercises.
