Do I need a referral to see a Physiotherapist?
No, you do not need a referral. However, if you do have a referral or any xrays, scans or information regarding your condition please bring this with you to your first appointment. If you require time off work due to your injury you may need to contact your GP or LMC.
Will my treatment be covered by ACC?
Treatments related to specific accidents/ incidents may be covered.
Please discuss with your Physiotherapist at your appointment.
How long after birth should I come in for my postnatal WOF?
We recommend that you come in for your postnatal WOF 4-5 weeks after birth so we can give you early advice and set you on the right track for your recovery. If you feel you are ready to come in sooner that is also appropriate, and if you can’t get in to see us until further down the track then don’t panic, it is never too late!
Can I bring my baby to my appointment?
Yes, you are more than welcome to bring you baby with you. Some women do prefer to arrange for someone to look after their baby while they come so they can have an uninterrupted session however this is often not always possible and we are more than happy to accomodate you and your baby’s needs throughout the appointment.
What are the Pilates Assessments?
These are half hour appointments to assess and check you before starting in any of the pre or post- natal pilates classes at the onsite Reab Pilates Studio. This is to both check that the classes are safe suitable for you and to identify any individual needs you may have, ensuring that you get the full benefit out of coming the classes.
