When might I see an Allied Health Assistant?
You may be recommended to see an Allied Health Assistant if:
- You have an existing treatment or exercise plan developed by an Exercise Physiologist, Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist that can be implemented by an Allied Health Assistant.
- Your rehabilitation journey has progressed to a level that an Allied Health Assistant can monitor and conduct follow-up appointments with you, reporting back to your Exercise Physiologist, Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist on a long-term basis.
- You require therapeutic support on a regular basis and would like assistance using fitness equipment, completing exercise programs and stretching.
- You are wanting to see an allied health professional more frequently.
- You are looking to implement an existing mobility and stretching program set by an Exercise Physiologist, Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist.
Before your first appointment with an Allied Health Assistant, you must complete at least two sessions with either an Exercise Physiologist, Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist. These sessions provide the Physiotherapist, Exercise Physiologist or Occupational Therapist time to assess and develop an individually tailored treatment plan that may be carried out by an Allied Health Assistant depending on treatment required.
