Latest COVID-19 Update

To our valued patients,

Firstly, we hope you and your family are safe and well during this difficult time.

The clinic is open for face to face consultations as normal.

We are also introducing online Telehealth consultations through PhysiApp to accommodate our patients who are unable to attend the clinic.

This simple process involves our Physiotherapist emailing you a link which
you will click on and will then redirect you to your online
consultation. It is as simple as that!

This process will allow the therapist to both assess you and observe your
movements to get an accurate as possible diagnosis of your
condition/progress and provide advice on exercises to help with your
recovery.

Telehealth Physiotherapy consultations are claimable on private health insurance! The Australian Physiotherapy Association has released a list of participating funds. This currently includes: Medibank, BUPA, NIB, GMHBA, Australian Unity, HBF. St Lukes, Teachers Health, AHM, Police Health, Health Partners, Defence Health, CUA, CBHS, Mildura Health and Pheonix Health. 

To book a Telehealth Online Physiotherapist Consultation you can call the clinic on 9639 2286 or book online.
