Frequently Asked Questions

What does a treatment session involve?

At SMPC your time is spent one-on-one with your physiotherapist. An initial consultation allows you to meet your physio and discuss the nature of your problem. A full history is taken to accurately identify all the contributing components and establish goals of treatment. Your physio will then conduct a physical assessment, examining the relevant postural, structural and mechanical factors contributing to your problem.

Your physio will diagnose the likely structures and nature of the problem and individually tailor a treatment plan to best address these issues.

Do Physiotherapists treat muscles or joints?

Physiotherapists are trained to treat the source of pain and/or dysfunction. This is usually a complex interaction between muscles and joints and other important structures such as nerves, discs, ligaments and tendons. Traumatic events, everyday stresses, disease or the ageing processes can impact on these structures and how they feel and behave. Physiotherapists combine their knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology with clinical reasoning and experience to determine why there is pain and how is this can best be addressed.

Do I need a referral form from a GP or surgeon?

No. You are welcome to seek physiotherapy treatment as you feel appropriate. We work closely with GPs, surgeons, podiatrists and radiologists and can advise and refer when appropriate.

Will I have to do exercises?

Part of a good overall treatment plan and progression is the inclusion of strengthening, stretching and adoption of healthy postures and activities. Often the way you move and position yourself outside of the treatment session has significant impact (positive or negative) on healing and recovery. Identifying these factors and equiping you with self-management and prevention strategies is a vital part of the treatment process.

What is a senior clinician?

At SMP our senior physio’s have significant experience in clinical and/or private practice settings. They have shown dedication within the furthering of their professional career and have demonstrated significant contribution within the SMP business and community.
