Who we treat
We treat a wide range of people with a wide range of abilities. From the athlete to the weekend warrior, the young to the not-so-young, if you think you may need a physiotherapist, you probably do.
A Doctor’s referral is not necessary, however, we accept Workcover, DVA, CTP and GP Management Plan referrals.
We have HICAPS and EFTPOS for payment and on-the-spot private health fund claiming.
We do not bulk bill.
