Do I need a referral?
As a private patient you do not need a referral for treatment or to claim from your private health fund.
Referrals are required for patients covered by
* third party
* veterans affairs
How long does a treatment take?
Your first consult generally takes 30-60 minutes with subsequent consults requiring 30-45 minutes.
What should I wear?
Physio assessment and treatment requires us to observe the postures and movements in the area of pain so some clothing may need to be removed. We suggest that you wear loose, comfortable separates that can be pulled up to expose the area in question. Patient gowns/shorts are available and can be requested during treatment if you desire. We want you to feel comfortable at all times…if uncomfortable please let your therapist know so that extra drapes can be supplied.
What do I need to bring with me?
Referral if you have one, scans ,X-rays or imaging results, health fund card, credit/eftpos card, details of insurance/workcover claim, veterans affairs card.
