About Us

Our Philosophy

Physiotherapy seeks to identify factors in everyday life and posture which predispose to, or provoke injury. These factors are addressed with research-based treatments and practical strategies for management in everyday life. At physiozone your time is spent one-on-one with your physiotherapist, in an environment which is friendly, relaxed and individually-focused - we pride ourselves on providing excellent physiotherapy treatment in a highly professional and uniquely personal clinical setting.

We offer you personal, professional "hands on" services, ensuring you notice a positive change with each visit. Our philosophy involves joining with you in restoring your optimal level of health and fitness. Together, we will make a difference to your life.

We believe that the key to getting good results and minimising recurrences of injuries is to educate you about your body and get you involved in the solution.

  • We will locate the real cause of your injury and pain.
  • Treat the cause of your condition - not just your symptoms.
  • Educate you in injury prevention to STOP relapses.
  • Get you back to your regular lifestyle FAST!

Staying fit and healthy is not always easy - sometimes you need help. The 21st century drive to maintain a positive & healthy lifestyle can lead to injury. Whether it's a slip in the garden, an odd twist in the office or a hard knock on the football pitch, injuries can interrupt your life - making every day tasks very uncomfortable. At physiozone we understand this, which is why we do our utmost to help our clients recover as fast as possible, and as easily as possible. We take our clients' concerns very seriously and appreciate how frustrating it is not to be able to do the things you want - whether that's sitting comfortably to watch a film, running 26km or simply getting a restful night's sleep.

We do ask all patients to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the initial consultation. You will receive a welcome pack with some documents to fill out prior to your consultation.

Faqs

It depends ...

If your injury is a WorkCover claim, motor vehicle accident claim or Department of Veteran's Affairs claim, then yes, you do need a referral from your GP or Specialist.

If you are claiming under the EPC (Enhanced Primary Care) package through the Medicare system, then you need a referral from your GP also.

For all other situations, you can simply refer yourself. We will communicate with your treating Dr as required.
This will obviously vary depending on your condition. We will outline what we feel will be the most likely scenario during your first visit. We aim to save you time and money, providing comprehensive treatment and education at each session, keeping the number of sessions you need to a minimum.
Payment for private treatment is made on the day of treatment. EFTPOS and HiCaps facilities are available for your convenience, allowing you to claim your private health rebate immediately, so you only have to pay the gap.

EPC, WorkCover, motor vehicle accidents and DVA claims are sent directly to the insurer by us.
Please give us as much notice as possible if you need to cancel an appointment, so another client can make use of the slot. A cancellation or non-attendance fee of $30 will be charged if less than 2 hours notice is given (obviously, consideration is given for exceptional circumstances). This fee is payable by you even if you are a WorkCover or motor vehicle accident claimant - not the insurer.
At your first visit, you will be thoroughly assessed so a diagnosis can be made, a treatment plan established, the recommended action plan will be discussed with you and we will commence treatment. It sounds a lot, and it is, we aim to make the most out of every visit with you. Your recovery will start at your first visit.
No, we offer treatment in private rooms so what you discuss in that room is private and stays that way. No-one else has access to your treatment records, only the physiotherapists treating you. If you need to see another physio, they will need to access your treatment record but confidentiality is assured.
