Physiotherapists needed
« on: January 14, 2015, 08:52:30 pm »
As some of you may know, my SIL is coming over from Scotland for a visit in a couple of weeks.  About 2 weeks ago she broke her arm badly - the humerus near the shoulder (sorry if my terminology and spelling is incorrect).  If age is relevant, she is in her mid 60s.  To cut a long story short, she is in need of physio every day whilst she is here so I am looking for good physios in Darwin, Brisbane, Sydney, Castlemaine / Bendigo and Melbourne. 

Does anyone know of / happy to suggest or recommend physios in any of those locations?  SIL is devastated that she may have to cancel her trip, but we are hoping that all will be fine.

Many thanks to you for any help or suggestions you can come up with - I am told that Skype may also be a possibility??  Her fracture clinic have stated a preference for the same physio for her time in Australia!  I don't know how practical that is, but the Skype option may be the answer there.

I would ring

Australian Physiotherapists assoc  and ask for members numbers.
or ATMS in Sydney. ( Australia Traditional Medicine Society)

Any decent physio will be registered with a professional organisation, and they should help you. :)

I always got referral's for me from ATMS.

Oh Marina that is horrid. I could probably have helped with Perth, but she isn't coming over. I think Robyn's suggestion is good. I am sure your SIL isn't the first person that this has happened to and they may well be very helpful.
