Telehealth 

Health fund & Medicare rebates available!

A safe and secure way of getting evidence based injury management 

With the advent of COVID-19 virus we understand and value that individuals may choose to or are forced to stay home. 

Fortunately we are able to offer online physiotherapy through Telehealth, which has been proven to be as effective as face to face physiotherapy for appropriate injuries and with capable clinicians. We will be using an application called Cliniko; this will allow private and confidential video conferences with your physiotherapist.

Medicare rebates The Australian Government has announced that allied health providers that deliver Chronic Disease Management (CDM) eligible services can now do so via Telehealth. 

Private Health Fund rebates Health funds will be offering rebates for allied health services that can be delivered via Telehealth. These include Physiotherapy and Exercise physiology. 

We are excited to offer this new service to our clients and will be continuing this service long after this crisis to assist people in remote locations or who have difficult schedules.

What equipment will I need?

What if I don’t have any of those things (such as landline only) or I’m just not comfortable with video chat?

We can still help. Our physiotherapists are well experienced with receiving frantic calls from a friend who has hurt themselves on the slopes of the Swiss alps, or a relative from interstate who has hurt their back doing some gardening! We are happy to take phone calls.
