How do I choose a good physio for my back pain?

Aug 15, 2018

What makes a good physio?

How do you choose a physiotherapist? Is there one better suited to treat you than another? If you are looking for a physiotherapist, we suggest that you consider the following things before choosing a physio to treat your condition.

Qualifications / Accreditation

All physiotherapists should be registered with the HCPC (Health Care Professions Council) and should have completed a physiotherapy degree.

Reviews/Recommendations

Has your physiotherapist got good google reviews and testimonials? Have they been recommended by a friend, consultant, nurse or doctor?

Listen

They listen: simple, but how else do you know that they are hearing your concerns? Do they ask you about your goals? Is it important for you to get back to sport or do you want to walk the dog or be able to do your gardening? Whatever your goal is, your physiotherapist should listen to you and help you to achieve your goal.

Methods of treatment

Physiotherapists offer hands on treatments, exercise rehabilitation, acupuncture, electrotherapy, sports massage, joint mobilisations plus other treatments, so if you are specifically looking for a certain type of treatment do ask if they offer that treatment. Make sure they offer One-on-One treatment too.

Location

Is the physiotherapist close to home or work? If you are driving, is there parking available?

Availability

Normally we want to see a physio because we are in pain and need quick relief. So it is important to check they are not booked out for weeks in advance and they can fit you in relatively quickly.

If you’ve been seeing a physiotherapist, osteopath, or chiropractor who doesn’t do these things, perhaps its time to reconsider . .
