Treatment adapted to you in your environment
Convenience. Many of us now lead non-stop busy lives, with a never-ending list of things to do. The traditional 9am-5pm is a distant memory, and often with commuting on either side, professional lives tend to resemble 12+hour days far more frequently than not. Or whether juggling the many day to day jobs, shopping, kid’s clubs, school pickups and drop offs, homework, tea, bath bed etc, finding that elusive 60-90 minutes to get to a traditional physiotherapy clinic for treatment can be very challenging.
What’s more, some injuries make it difficult to travel. Broken arms, legs, lower limb muscular strains, post operation, spasms & back injuries to name the most common. Driving, parking, public transportation, organising family and friends for lifts, the simple fact is, an uncomfortable situation is made worse by logistical organisation and just unnecessary additional stress!
For certain age groups it is almost “essential” to treat in their own environment. Seeing how a baby or young child moves, plays and operates give a far more precise “real world” indication that taking them to a foreign environment. And in particular considering Elderly patients, making them comfortable in their own space, being with them and showing them the first few times how to integrate their exercises into their lives can make a tremendous difference to a successful outcome.
And this is where we come in. Fully equipped with everything we need to treat, from a portable massage table to portable ultrasound, from gym balls to exercise bands, we will bring the clinic to you and assess not only your injury, but also the lifestyle and environmental factors that can contribute to injury or decelerate rehabilitation in the future.
In some cases we may recommend taking the treatment away from the home, for example to the park for running, or to the swimming pool for a more hydro based physiotherapy session. As a mobile clinic we have the freedom and ability to choose the best place to manage your rehabilitation without having to carry the costs of owning it ourself, this in turn allows us to keep our costs reasonable and competitive so that the “burden of rehabilitation” isn’t made worse by out of control costs. We are covered by all major insurance companies, and prior to starting treatment you should always obtain an authorisation number.
Furthermore, we take the time we need at each treatment session. Many fixed location clinics are limited to 30min appointments, or expensive “double appointments”. At PhysioT our philosophy is that each treatment session will last as long as it needs to, for some this may be 30minutes, for others it may be 60minutes or even longer. It is likely that during your treatment with us that you experience a variety of session lengths depending on how things are progressing.
The one thing you should be aware of always: we are committed to rehabilitation as quickly, and as sustainably as possible.
