Our team of experienced physiotherapists use advanced, evidence based techniques to assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders.
Physiotherapists are university trained allied health professionals who specialise in prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries, musculoskeletal and neurological disorders, and respiratory conditions. They use a combination of manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, education and lifestyle advice, soft tissue techniques and anti-inflammatory modalities to treat conditions.
All Physiotherapists are required to complete a minimum of four years training before becoming registered to practice and must participate in ongoing continuing education every year to maintain their registration.

WHAT HAPPENS AT MY PHYSIOTHERAPY CONSULTATION?
At your first physiotherapy consultation, your physiotherapist will ask you about your particular problem. They will assess you and diagnose your condition, then work with you to set goals and objectives around the treatment of your particular condition and your specific needs. If referred from your GP or Specialist, regular progress reports will be sent back to your Doctor.
DO YOU NEED A REFERRAL FROM YOUR GP?
As a first contact practitioner, you do not need a referral to see a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists, doctors and other health professionals often work closely as part of a team to plan and manage your treatment.
CAN I CLAIM MY PHYSIOTHERAPY CONSULTATION?
Rebates are available for Physiotherapy under Medicare (Enhanced Care Plans) Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA), WorkCover, National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), motor vehicle accidents and most private health insurance.
