How Does Mobile Physiotherapy Work?
It’s easy, you or a family member, doctor, friend or carer calls us on 1300 797 793.
In the initial phone call we will find out from you what you need help with. Then we will guide you through how we work together, take down your details, contact number, payment info and your address to make your first appointment.
- visit you, wherever you call home, for your first appointment
- listen carefully and discuss with you indepth rergarding which pain and/or health problems are troubling you
- your mobile physiotherapist will then complete an assessment of your needs, your injury and/or what’s causing your problem/s.
- after the assessment, your physio will create a one-page plan to achieve your health goals**
- once we have agreed on the plan, your mobile physio will visit you at the agreed appointment times and provide physio treatment in the most convenient location possible: your own home, where you live
**If you’d like, we can share your goal plan with your family and/or doctor so we all work together on helping you smash your goals
We know that many older Australians can find it difficult, if not almost impossible to get to a physiotherapy clinic and that is why The Physio Co was born.
By providing a mobile physiotherapy service you no longer have to struggle with public transport, take a taxi or ask for a lift as a favour, we will come to you – and as an additional bonus, you and your physiotherapist will be working in the comfort of your own home.
The Physio Co is an ideal way to provide help older people who may be bedridden, immobile or less independent than usual as they are recovering from an operation or accident and unable to get about.
The team at The Physio Co are dedicated specialists committed to helping older people and they have skills that cover wide range of health difficulties. We can help reduce pain, improve flexibility, strength, balance and overall mobility.
Physio can also help with dementia, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, injury or stroke and in preparation for surgery as well as rehabilitation after surgery.
Physiotherapy is not just for serious problems, physio helps keep us mobile improving our general health as age starts to catch up with us.
