Why come to Hawke's Bay Pelvic Health & Women's Physiotherapy for treatment? Hawke's Bay Pelvic Health & Women's Physiotherapy is a Private service that will ensure you receive treatment quickly and safely. This will result in a faster recovery, prevent recurrence and reduce the need to wait for necessary appointments. I will ensure that you receive the treatment that you need and will always liaise with your GP, LMC or specialist regarding your problem, with your consent.
What does an initial Appointment Involve? It is important on the first assessment that I get a thorough history on your concerns. I often do a physical assessment on the first appointment, but this will depend on our discussion. There is usually a lot of advice/education given on that first session.
How many sessions will I need? This can vary from just one appointment to several appointments depending on your problems. In the event that Physiotherapy does not seem to be benefiting you, I will liaise with your GP or other Health Professionals as appropriate to ensure that you receive the right treatment or investigative pathway that you need.
Do I need to be referred by my GP or Consultant? You do not need to be referred by your GP or Consultant. A self- referral is more than adequate.
Can I bring someone with me? Absolutely, You are always welcome to bring a support person with you. Children are welcome too
