FAQ

  • Why should I choose Community Therapy?

    The staff of Community Therapy are constantly reflecting on our approach to clinical practice to ensure we remain current with modern evidence, innovative healthcare & maximising our quality of healthcare.

    We work closely with the coordinators and care staff from our partner organisations we to ensure any strategies and recommendations are put in place and can be supported by care staff where required.

  • Does Physiotherapy have measurable outcomes?

    Yes.

    One example of a test we may perform to test a client’s balance is the Berg Balance Scale.

    This test allows our Physiotherapist to test many components of the client’s balance to determine areas of balance that require improvement through training. This can be things like:

    • The ability to balance with eyes closed
    • The ability to balance on one leg
    • The ability to reach and touch the floor in standing

    The tests we perform in an initial assessment can determine the level of impairment in a client’s physical function and allows us to identify risks (i.e. risk of falling in narrow areas or in the night time) as well as develop a safe and repeatable treatment plan.

    Our Physiotherapists provide ongoing care to our clients and our clients continue with the same Physiotherapist to ensure continuity of care.
