About this website
Physiocheck.co.nz - the online physiotherapy check
Physiocheck.co.nz is a new initiative by physiotherapists to meet the increasing demand for online information about physical conditions. Our mission is to give patients reliable information and to serve as intermediary between patient and physiotherapy practice.
The online physiotherapy check
At Physiocheck.co.nz you can check your physiotherapy-related symptoms by means of an interactive physiotherapy check. Where you previously had to search the Internet for websites and forums about different physical conditions, you can now do this on a single website using a unique online physiotherapy check.
By answering questions and performing tests, the symptoms are compared to the most common conditions in physiotherapy. The check gives an indication of the condition(s) that you might be suffering and gives you the opportunity to make an appointment with a physiotherapist in your area. The information on Physiocheck.co.nz is based on medical scientific literature and medical guidelines. Physiotherapists and GPs work together to optimise the check.
Please note: Physiocheck.co.nz should not be seen as a replacement to a visit to the GP or physiotherapist. The aim of this website is to give you insight into your own symptoms and make it easy for you to find a physiotherapist in your area.
More insight into your own symptoms
By answering the questions in our online physio check, the user is stimulated to think about his/her own physical condition. Where does it hurt? How did the symptoms develop? And which movements or activities cause you to experience the most symptoms? Once the check has been completed, an overview of conditions and injuries that may cause the symptoms is provided immediately.
Well prepared before seeing the physiotherapist
Upon completion of the physio check, Physiocheck.co.nz offers you the option to make an appointment with a physiotherapist in your area. The personal physio letter contains the most important information from the physiotherapy check and can be taken along to the therapist who will be treating you.
