Tools of the trade
Having real life anatomy models in our physio clinic makes it so much easier when it comes to explaining to the patient what is going on with their particular condition. Personally, I’m a visual learner. If I can visualise it, I can understand it.
Technology is great too. There are quite a few apps on the market which can be used as excellent patient educational tools.
Physiotherapists are a little bit different from other healthcare professionals. We spend a lot of time asking questions, taking you through different movements and tests and explaining what’s going on.
Countless times I have heard stories of patients who went to see their GP as their first point of contact only to be out the door 5 minutes later with a referral to see someone else.
