How we work

Step 1

Our out-patient appointments are 45 minutes each, including a full evaluation. Follow-up appointments (45 minutes each) consist of treatment, exercise prescription and patient education through discussing a treatment plan. Referral for specialists or other treatments will be done as required or if no progress is seen. In-hospital treatments focus on evaluation and treatment as prescribed by the doctor/specialist. Further treatment plans will be discussed with the doctor/ specialist and communicated to patients.

Step 2

We encourage patients to wear comfortable clothes. Please come in a few minutes early, to allow for a little time to fill in some forms. The physiotherapist will advise a treatment plan and discuss when follow up appointments need to be scheduled
