How to Access Physiotherapy Services

Your specialist nurse or doctor will refer you for physiotherapy.

It is important to remember that all bleeds should be reported, so that each bleeding episode can be treated promptly. As soon as you are able, let your specialist nurse or doctor know that you have had a bleeding episode so that a referral can be made and actioned quickly.

In order to ensure that your muscle or joint makes a speedy recovery, make sure to attend your appointments and do the exercises you have been prescribed. You may need to organise time off work or school in advance of appointments so that you are able to attend.

Please do bring relatives or whānau to physiotherapy appointments. Attending with a partner or family member can help to provide support during assessment or rehabilitation appointments.
