Frequently Asked Questions

Make An Appointment

Below is a list of commonly asked questions.  If there is anything you are concerned about or would like to discuss before your appointment please do not hesitate to contact us ahead of your appointment.

How long will the appointment last?

An initial appointment at Body Logic Physiotherapy Clinic will last up to 45 minutes to an hour and any subsequent follow-up appointments will last approx 45 minutes.

Is there anything I need to bring to my appointment?

If you have a referral letter from another professional or a list of medication, it could be useful to have it available at your initial appointment along with any equipment you might have any questions about.  If you are covered by an insurance company for treatment, please bring your authorisation details with you.

Is there anything special I should wear?

Please wear comfortable fitting clothing to any appointments.  It might be necessary for you to remove some items of clothing for access to the affected area so please ensure you are wearing suitable clothing!

Do I have to book an appointment or can I drop in?

We are a busy clinic so ALL appointments are by prior arrangement only.

What should I expect at an appointment?

At the initial appointment we will check your details and then take a history from you relating to your problem. This will include how it is affecting your lifestyle, any other medical problems you may have and any medication you are taking.

We will then examine the ‘problem area’. To do this, your physio will need to be able to see the area (this may need you to undress down to your underwear), to get a full picture of any swelling, muscle spasm and movement changes around the affected area. Your physio will then normally have a hands on feel of that part of your body, feeling for stiffness, muscle spasm, signs of inflammation or instability.

Throughout your appointment your physiotherapist will explain what they are examining and why. A diagnosis will then be explained to you and you will be able to discuss the treatment options including mobilisations, ultrasound, acupuncture and strapping. You will always be given some advice and/or exercises for you to start to help address the problem.
