Did you know that musculoskeletal health issues are the most common cause of repeat GP appointments and account for around 1 in 5 of all GP appointments? Better still do you know that most of them can be dealt with effectively by a physiotherapist without any need to see the GP?
Really a Physiotherapist can help my pain? How? Surely that is just massage? Well read on…
Research shows physiotherapists are the most expert professional group regarding musculoskeletal issues with the exception of orthopaedic consultants. They have the same high safety record as GP’s and are trained to spot and act on red flags (a red flag is a serious pathology that requires urgent referral). We are autonomous, regulated practitioners, holding our own professional liability and do not require supervision or delegation from medical colleagues or others.
Musculoskeletal pain is the second largest cause of sickness absence and speeding up access to a physio will reduce this.
So the good news is, if you are in pain or know somebody who is suffering with pain then Crest Health Physiotherapy Yanchep will help, book online now or call the Yanchep Medical centre on 9562 8100 to see Steve.
