Confused over choosing a physiotherapist for you?
Here is a simple walkover for you to assist.
Things to consider when choosing a physiotherapist in Brisbane.
Choosing a physiotherapist can be a confusing challenge, especially if you've recently moved to Brisbane. I would suggest you to start by asking for recommendations from your co-workers, neighbors, and friends. Your body is your most important possession, ultimately you will have to decide who meets your individual needs and situation. In my experience the following three points are the most important when selecting a physiotherapist in Brisbane.
1. Physiotherapist location in Brisbane
Generally a person will select a physiotherapist close to their home or work. They will ask the following questions: which suburb in Brisbane? is it easy to get to? is there ample parking? I would avoid a physiotherapy clinic located in Brisbane CBD, they are often difficult to access without parking. You don't want to be walking large distances to find out your physiotherapist in Brisbane CBD if you have an injury. Please consider the physiotherapist closest to your home or work might not be the best in Brisbane. If you live on the Brisbane Northside it is worth driving the extra distance to find a quality practitioner.
2. Experienced physiotherapist in Brisbane
The most common question a patient will ask before selecting a physiotherapist at our Brisbane clinic is "how many years of experience?" This is an excellent question! I would advise you not to select a newly graduated physiotherapist to provide treatment to your injury. I understand they need to learn experience somewhere, let them experiment on someone else. Unfortunately, a new graduate physiotherapist in Brisbane does not have enough experience yet and could miss valuable information during an assessment. I would recommend you a physiotherapist with 7-10 years experience.
3. The physiotherapist's attention to detail.
To achieve the best results, the physiotherapist in Brisbane must provide a treatment plan that suits your individual needs and circumstances. If they do not ask the right questions, and actively listen to your answers, they DO NOT understand everything about your injury and you as a person. I would suggest a Brisbane physiotherapist who takes the time to listen closely to your problems.
