How do i book an appointment?
What appointment should i book?
If you are a new client to Fieldwork Health, you have a new issue or you haven't seen us in a while choose an "initial appointment". This allows the clinician more time to go through your issues and formulate the plan to get you better faster!
If you are a return client, your clinician should have given you a plan for your appointment length required for your issue. If you are unsure, give us a call on 64686825 and our friendly team will assist you to make sure you are getting what you need.
Whom should i book with?
It is important you get the right person to treat your specific issue to get the best outcome and get you out of pain fast! Fieldwork has Physiotherapists and Remedial Massage Therapists to help you.
We will ask you a few questions to best direct you to the practitioner that suits your needs. See our team and some of their interests here.
How long are my appointments?
Appointments may vary from 20 minute short consultations to longer 60 minute consults.
Your initial appointment is generally longer, involving planning and goal setting, more detailed notes and assessment.
Follow up appointments will vary with your presentation and severity.
Generally if things are really painful the appointments will be shorter and more frequent.
If you have had a longer or a chronic presentation (or less painful) we can generally dive deeper into the reason behind your issue. These appointments will generally be longer and spaced out more.
What are the cost of appointments?
Our appointments change in cost with the length of appointment. Here is an easy table to show you the cost breakdowns, click on the service type for additional information.
What should i wear to my appointments?
Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in.
The therapists will need to access your area of complaint, so feel free to bring or change into shorts / singlets.
If you are doing a gym session - wear appropriate gym clothing, shoes and bring a water bottle.
