What We Do

Physiotherapy is an allied health service that looks to maintain and optimise movement. This evidence-based health care profession considers movement central to health and wellbeing and can be beneficial for a range of injuries, conditions and functional changes associated with age.

When should you see a physiotherapist? 

Physiotherapy should be considered for any injury or condition that is impacting your movement. These could include:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain
  • Groin and pelvic pain
  • Headaches and vertigo
  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Post-operative rehabilitation
  • Posture and alignment problems
  • Sciatica
  • Women’s and men’s pelvic health; including incontinence

What qualifications do Physiotherapists have? 

Physiotherapists are university trained health care professionals with a four-year bachelor degree.  Their thorough understanding of the human anatomy enables Physiotherapists to assess the underlying cause of your joint, muscle or nerve issues and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan to help you achieve your movement goals.

Do you need a GP referral to see a Physiotherapist?

Physiotherapy does not require a referral from your GP. However, if your GP has recommended you for a Chronic Disease Management Program (previously known as Enhanced Primary Care) this referral will need to be brought to your initial appointment.

Can I claim this service as an extra on my health insurance policy?

Physiotherapy sessions may be claimed on private health insurance depending on your level of cover, please check with your private health insurance provider.
