Do I need an appointment?

The best way for us to heal what hurts and help you get on with living your life is to ensure you can have treatment at the best time for you, you should book an appointment either online, by calling your closest clinic or visiting in person.

Whilst we will do our best to assist with emergencies, acute injuries and pain we cannot guarantee walk-ins will be able to seen. Call and ask to speak with a physio if you are unsure whether you need an emergency appointment.

Do you require a referral?

Physiotherapists are “first contact practitioners” which means you do not need to see your Doctor first before coming to physiotherapy. We are trained and skilled in examination, diagnosis, treatment and advise our patients with no previous input or referral from a doctor. This can include ordering xrays and scans to assist with your diagnosis and treatment.

Do you offer home visits?
As a clinic-based physiotherapy practice we do not routinely offer home visits. We are able to assist with providing recommendations for many fantastic physiotherapy services who can help if you need physio at home. Call and ask to speak to one of our physios.
Do you do gym rehab programs?

Gym consultations are charged at $150/hour. Travel must also be paid for at the hourly rate. You are also responsible for covering the cost of entry to the gym (either casual visits or a membership).

Do you do hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is charged at $150/hour. Travel must also be paid for at the hourly rate. You are also responsible for covering the cost of entry to the pool (either casual visits or a membership).

Do I need to get xrays/scans first?
No, we can arrange any xrays or scans required to assist in your diagnosis and treatment.

We are able to refer for bulk billed xrays and the cost for the majority of musculoskeletal MRI’s are the same as if you were referred by your GP.

If you already have xrays/scans relevant to your condition please bring them with you. Scans performed at QScan or QldXray can be accessed and viewed electronically.

Do you have Hicaps/instant health fund claiming?
Yes, we have Hicaps at our clinics so you can claim your Private Health Fund rebate at the time of your appointment and only pay the gap.
