Consent to treatment

By attending an appointment at our clinic, you acknowledge that you willingly give consent to our Physiotherapists to perform any and all necessary examinations and treatment procedures in accordance with their professional training, qualifications and understanding of your injury.

You understand that, during your treatment, different Physiotherapists at Quest Allied Health Pty Ltd may be involved in your care.

You understand that you have the opportunity to discuss the nature and purpose of your physiotherapy care, with your Physiotherapist, before any treatment is performed, and that you may opt out of treatment at any time.

You acknowledge and accept the following:

Treatment

1.1 Physiotherapy involves physical treatment, which may include “hands on” treatment, among other treatment options.

1.2 You have the right to choose the Physiotherapist that you wish to see, refuse treatments offered to you, or seek a second opinion at any time.

 

1.3 There are possible risks associated with physiotherapy treatment modalities, including but not limited to; stiffness and soreness, soft tissue injury, neurological complications, cerebrovascular injuries, skin irritations, burns and other minor complications.

 

1.4 The chance of risk is lowered by a thorough assessment of your condition, and we take every precaution to minimise risk to you and to the therapist.

 

1.5 In many cases, other treatment options may be advisable. If the risk of treating your condition with physiotherapy modalities is considered to be too high, your therapist may refer you on to other forms of care. This on-referral will also occur if they believe your condition is outside of their scope of practice.

 

1.6 There may also be an inherent risk of remaining untreated. Depending on the requirements for your treatment and condition, remaining untreated can result in adverse effects to your health and continued deterioration of your symptoms.
