Physiotherapy is designed to improve your physical wellbeing, reduce pain, repair injuries and improve your daily life through movement. What happens in the clinic is a great starting point and place to move your progress forward, but it’s what you do outside of the clinic that is going to make lasting change and keep you as in control of your body and its condition, as is possible.
Our Lincoln Physiotherapy clinic is useful at all ages and stages of our life, not only during times of pain and injury, as the ideal situation would be to help prevent musculoskeletal problems from arising in the first place.
Experience personalised care and specialised treatments with InLine Therapies. Our focus lies in assisting people who have specific physical goals they wish to achieve. From improving flexibility, strength and pain to helping you feel yourself again – we’re here to help.
At your initial consultation (approximately 55 minute appointment), a thorough assessment will help us to understand what you need and how we can achieve it – you just need to book the appointment. You’ll have a thorough assessment to help diagnose the issue, put together a plan to reach your goals, and start the program straight away. It will usually include a combination of a movement and exercise program, advice and education (to ensure you remain the expert of your body) and hands-on therapy if needed.
Physiotherapy is a team effort between you and the therapist you’re working with, so the more you learn in the clinic room, the more you can replicate it on your own outside the room where the real lasting change happens! We’re always here to help, but want you to feel empowered and able to self-manage as much as possible.
After the initial session, depending on what you and your therapist think would work best for you, you can arrange further sessions. For those that feel they have several areas of the body or goals to work on, 55 minute appointments are useful. If you and your therapist feel a shorter appointment is all that’s needed to concentrate on one body area or goal, a 40 minute appointment can help you get to where you want to be.
To give you the best possible chance of achieving the results you want, you will need to practice the advice and follow the program(s). This will also reduce the risk of complications or re-occurrence of an injury or issue, so you can get on with living a life that you don’t feel held back from.
The number of physiotherapy sessions you may require can vary greatly depending on several factors. These can include the nature and severity of your condition, your individual health history, your personal goals for recovery, and how your body responds to treatment.
Our aim is to help you experience positive changes as soon as possible. While clients often report these after 1-2 sessions, many will see lasting improvements within 4-6 sessions. However, it’s important to note that every individual’s recovery journey is unique. Some may need fewer sessions, while others with more complex or chronic conditions may require ongoing treatment over a longer period of time.
At your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will develop a personalised treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and goals. This will include an estimated number of sessions required for your recovery. Throughout your treatment, your progress will be regularly reviewed and the treatment adjusted as necessary to ensure you’re on track towards meeting your goal(s).
We always strive for efficient and effective treatment, aiming to get you back to your regular activities as soon as possible while ensuring long-term success in managing your condition.
In most cases a doctor’s referral is not required for physiotherapy at our clinic, meaning you can make an appointment with us directly.
However, there are a few exceptions where a doctor’s referral might be necessary. For instance, if your health insurance provider requires a referral for coverage, or if you have a specific medical condition that needs a doctor’s clearance before undergoing physiotherapy – an example of this would be recovering from a recent fracture.
If you’re unsure whether you need a referral, feel free to contact us, and our team would be happy to assist you. Remember, our primary goal is to make your path to recovery as smooth and straightforward as possible.
Our initial assessment treatment session is designed to be comprehensive and thorough, hence it is scheduled for 55 minutes. This gives us ample time to discuss your health history, your specific needs, and to commence a personalised treatment plan.
Following the initial session, you have the flexibility to choose between 55-minute or 40-minute follow-up sessions, depending on your preference and the treatment plan established by your physiotherapist. These sessions will typically involve reviewing your progress, adjusting your treatment plan as necessary, and continuing with your personalised therapeutic exercises and interventions.
We always aim to make the most of the time you spend with us, ensuring that each session is as beneficial and effective as possible in supporting your journey to recovery.
For your physiotherapy sessions, it’s best to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that allows for easy movement. You’ll want to choose clothes that will allow the physiotherapist to easily access and assess the area of your body that requires treatment.
For instance, if you’re attending a session for a knee issue, wearing shorts would be ideal. For upper body issues, a sleeveless top is often a good choice. Depending on the nature of your treatment, you may be doing exercises or stretches, so it’s essential to wear something you can move freely in.
As for footwear, trainers or other comfortable, closed-toe shoes are typically recommended if your treatment involves standing or walking exercises. Please avoid wearing excessive jewellery, and if applicable you may wish to tie back long hair, to ensure it does not interfere with your treatment.
Please remember that your comfort is paramount during your physiotherapy sessions, and we want to ensure your clothing helps rather than hinders your progress.
