  • How do I prepare for a physio appointment?
    Prior to your initial appointment we request that you fill out a new patient form to provide us with your details and a brief understanding of your condition and/or injury. This can be done by following the the link in your booking confirmation email or in person on the day of your appointment. We request that you come in 5 minutes before your appointment if you choose to fill in your new patient form in person. Please come to your appointment wearing comfortable and unrestrictive clothing. If possible, please leave the affected area exposed to make it easier for the physiotherapist to conduct the required assessments.
  • Do I need a referral from my GP?
    No, you do not need a referral from a GP. Physiotherapist's are primary health care professionals, meaning that they are trained to be the first point of contact for many injuries and conditions that are not medical emergencies.
  • What can I expect from my first appointment?
    First your physiotherapist will have a conversation with you about your injury and/or condition, work and social life, hobbies and interests. This gives you the opportunity to share your main concerns and goals and for the physiotherapist to get a good understanding of what may be contributing to your condition and the best pathway forwards. Following this the physiotherapist will conduct physical assessments to gain a further understanding of your injury and/or condition and what is contributing to your symptoms. From here the physiotherapist will prescribe the appropriate treatment strategies for your condition. This could include, but is not limited to, massage and manual therapy, dry needling and a home exercise program.
  • Do you accept private health insurance? How much will my rebate be?
    Yes, we accept most major private health insurance. Everyone's rebate is different depending on the cover that you have. We can provide a quote if requested, however this has to be done in person.
  • How often will I need to come in and see you?
    Many factors influence how often we like to see our patients. Depending on your injury and/or condition and the severity of your symptoms, we might suggest that you come in twice a week, weekly or fortnightly. It's important to remember that everyone presents differently, so we cater our management based on what's best for each individual, their schedule and their financial situation.
