SECOND OPINION CONSULTATIONS

What is Second Opinion Physiotherapy?

Second opinion physiotherapy is a focused review of your condition that has already been provided for by another treatment provider.

This programme is suitable: 

  1. If you have a condition that you don’t understand and is limiting your functional ability.

  2. If you feel like you’ve tried many treatments, but are still disabled by your problem.

  3. If you would like to gain a better understanding of how to self manage your problem.

  4. If you would like a second opinion for conservative care before making a decision on surgery.

  5. If your family, company or treating clinician would like a second opinion on your treatment.

 

Why is second opinion needed?

There are good reasons why getting a second opinion from a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist is helpful:

  1. Your condition is not improving with current treatment and/or you are unsure about the direction to take.

  2. A collaborative approach is needed for the assessment and management of your complex condition. E.g. your Clinician (doctor, OT, physio), exercise trainer, massage therapist may request a one-off second opinion review of your problem, to provide additional support for management.
