Frequently Asked Questions

What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy can help you recover from injury, managing your pain and stiffness, improving your mobility and educating you in ways to prevent further injury. LifeForce physiotherapists listen to your needs and tailor their treatment programs specific to your condition, activities at work and home and your lifestyle in general.

Do I need a doctor’s referral?

Physiotherapists are first contact practitioners so a doctor’s referral is not necessary unless you plan to lodge a third- party claim because your injury was sustained at work or in a car accident.

What sort of treatments do physios use?

Our physios are trained to assess a wide range of conditions and after diagnosing your problem, help you to understand what is wrong, how to best treat and manage the condition, taking into account lifestyle, work, activities of daily living and overall health. The following is a list of treatment examples your physio might incorporate into your treatment program:

  • Joint mobilisation (and manipulation if indicated) to address pain and stiffness
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Exercise prescription to improve movement and strength
  • Muscle re-education to improve control
  • Postural re-education
  • Education with mobility aids, braces, taping
  • Dry needling
