How do I get to Yves Silveira Physio?
The clinic is located on Botany Road opposite ‘Gardeners Road Public School’ and is also a short walk away from Mascot train station. There is also residential street parking available outside the clinic and in surrounding streets.
What should I expect for the initial consultation?
We will begin by reviewing and assessing your health history in conjunction with your presenting complaint(s), and we will also evaluate your movement and function. Our overall goal is to not only treat the aggravating factor but to also diagnose and attend to the cause of the issue. During your first appointment, we will discuss a diagnosis, collaborate on a treatment plan, and provide you with hands on treatment. An initial consultation will take about 45 minutes to an hour.
How long is a session?
An initial consultation typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour, and a standard consultation takes about 30 minutes. We aim to start promptly upon your arrival and make the best use of your time during your consultation.
Do I need to bring anything?
Because of the current COVID-19 situation, we ask that you bring your own towel and face mask. We also require you to wear this mask during your consultation.
What should I wear?
We recommend to wear comfortable clothes that you can easily remove should that be necessary, and most importantly we’d recommend you to wear clothes that are non-restrictive and that you can move freely in, in case we like to go through some exercises with you.
How often do I need to come in for treatment?
This varies based on your condition among other factors. During your appointment, we will discuss and establish a personalised treatment plan for you, which will tell you how often you should come in. We will also provide you with techniques to better manage and strengthen the affected areas at home. Your progression may also dictate how often you would need to see a physiotherapist.
