At Coastal Balance, we understand the importance of feeling comfortable and confident that you are receiving only the best care from your physiotherapist.

It is important for you to know that all physiotherapists are not the same. Although all physiotherapists registered to practice in Australia are qualified to provide safe, effective health care, many have, through experience and ongoing education, developed special interests in certain areas, such as spinal injuries, sports injuries, hip or pelvic pain.

Here are some important questions to ask your physiotherapist:

  • What is your highest level of education?
  • How long have you been practicing in this field?
  • Have you treated many patients with this type of injury or condition?
  • Have you taken many professional development courses?
  • Are you a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association?  Members are required to undertake a certain number of professional education courses each year to stay up to date with the latest assessment and treatment techniques.

These are all key questions to ask to get to know your physiotherapist and to be confident that you will receive the best care for your condition or injury.
