What happens during the initial physiotherapy assessment?
The first step for all clients at Kieser is an initial assessment with a physiotherapist. Over the course of this 45-minute consultation your physiotherapist will undertake a complete review of your medical history, physical condition, mobility, training background, personal goals and perform an initial back strength test. After your initial assessment with the physiotherapist they will either recommend a course of physiotherapy if required, or schedule your introductory training session with one of our instructors.
What do I need to bring with me for the initial physiotherapy assessment?
Please wear comfortable clothes as your physiotherapist may have you do some stretching. Be sure to bring your private health card as we attract rebates for all physiotherapy appointments at Kieser. You will also be emailed a link to an online registration form prior to your appointment. If you are unable to fill this form out prior to your appointment, please arrive 10 minutes early to take care of any paperwork.
