What to expect at Necessity Health
always at your comfort level
At Necessity Health we will always work to and respect your level of comfort at all times. During therapy, our clinicians will apply pressure to certain muscles to treat your condition. At any point that you feel uncomfortable just let us know and we will adjust the treatment. At times we may ask you to remove an item of clothing to work on certain areas/conditions, this will always be conducted in a sensitive and respectful approach (hospital gowns are always available). However, if you do not feel comfortable with this let your clinician know and they will discuss an alternative approach to your therapy.
Your first appointment
For your first appointment please arrive at the clinic 10 minutes prior to your session to complete some paperwork
By completing our new patient form you will assist our team in making diagnoses and discussing treatment options.
You will be invited into a private therapy room
For your privacy all treatment is conducted in our therapy rooms.
To start your session, our clinician will discuss with you the problems and symptoms you are experiencing. You will be asked about your medical history, current medications and any other factors that may impact your therapy.
Your clinician will advise you if they are able to treat your condition or not. At times we may refer you to another health practitioner if we feel they are better suited to your condition.
Your clinician may ask you to perform passive and active movements to assess your condition.
Hands on treatment
After assessing your condition your clinician will begin to perform hands on treatment to relieve the symptoms of your conditions (please note Exercise Physiologists will ask you to perform certain exercises instead)
Plan moving forward
Your clinician will then recommend a plan moving forward including practical at home advice and further appointments where necessary.
What to wear
It is important to feel comfortable at your appointment. We recommend wearing loose clothing to Osteopathy, Massage Therapy and Podiatry appointments. At Exercise Physiology appointments we recommend wearing activewear.
