Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats and works to prevent pain and injury through physical means. Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function who work in partnership with their patients, assisting them to overcome movement disorders which may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or are the result of ageing or life-changing events.
You do not require a GP referral to book a physiotherapy appointment as a private patient. If you are coming in for physiotherapy under a Workers' Compensation or motor vehicle accident claim, then we do require a doctor's referral in order to bill the account to the third party. We do also accept referrals under the Chronic Disease Management program from your GP. You will need to discuss this with your GP to see if you are eligible for the Medicare funded sessions.
If you have physiotherapy cover on your private health policy then you are able to swipe your card in clinic to claim your rebate on the day of service, meaning you will only need to pay the gap. The rebated amount will depend on your level of cover. To find out how much your insurance will cover, please contact your private health fund.
Physiotherapy can help with lots of different musculoskeletal issues of the body. Most commonly we help with spinal pain, other peripheral joint pain (hip, shoulder etc), nerve issues including sciatica, tendinopathies, biomechanical issues, rehabilitation post injury and surgery as well as pre and post natal management.
Our friendly staff are there to greet you with a smile and help you get started on the road to recovery. You will be required to fill in an information and consent form before your first appointment so please arrive 5-10 minutes early to ensure you appointment starts on time. Your physiotherapist will thoroughly assess your issue and provide treatment during the first session and then design a customised treatment plan to give you guidance on how they will help you achieve your health and fitness goal, moving you towards your best quality of life.
