What is a Physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists are university educated healthcare professionals trained to assess, diagnose, treat/prevent disease and disability through physical means.
They are experts in movement and function. They work with their clients to overcome pain, stiffness and/or injury. Complaints can be present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or as a result of ageing. They can help you recover quicker or help with ongoing management.
Your treatment plan will take into account your lifestyle, activities and general health.

What to expect

An initial consultation at Baw Baw Physio & Fitness consists of you being interviewed by the Physiotherapist in a treatment room.  This allows the Physio to gather all the relevant information regarding your complaint. Following this discussion the physiotherapist will then observe your movement and perform special tests to further determine the cause of your problem.

If appropriate you may be provided with a home exercise program. Doing particular exercises at home can be an important part of your recovery/management and it’s very important that you are willing and an active participant in your rehabilitation.

Our physiotherapists allow longer than industry average time for our appointments, so we create adequate time for you to be treated thoroughly and ask any questions you may have.
