Physiotherapy - It's all about YOU!
Here at the Physio Fit Studio we understand that you are an individual and unique, and your treatment should be, too. When you come to see us, we spend the time to deeply understand your situation, motivations and goals, and will create a treatment plan tailored just for you. Even if you have exactly the same pain as the person before you, you'll receive customised treatment aimed at helping you achieve your goals as quickly as possible.
Our Studio has a ‘hands on’ philosophy providing you with maximum benefit and value from your treatment time. We only ever treat one person at a time. We will find the best method to get or keep you out of pain, work with you on your goals and guide you on how you can get there faster.
Physiotherapy is a drug-free and scientifically verified approach to treating musculoskeletal aches, pains and injuries. Physiotherapists are university trained professionals who specialise in treating and preventing pain and injuries to joints, nerves and muscles. Hence, you will NOT need a referral from your doctor to come and see us
Our 45 minute initial consultation allows us to comprehensively assess your injury or condition and provide an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment to aid in alleviating your pain and restoring your movement from the first visit.
- We have a strong focus on hands on treatment and exercise prescription. We don't rely on machines
- We never treat more than one client at a time and treatment is conducted in private spacious rooms
- We will answer all of your questions and teach you the appropriate exercises and stretches for your injury and make sure you have a hand out to take home

We take the time to advise you on management of your injury or condition. The more you can do to help us, the less we need to do… resulting in fewer consultations. A true saving to you!

Do I need a referral?
A medical referral is not required to see a physiotherapist, massage therapist or come for Pilates unless you are claiming the injury through a third party provider, e.g. Workcover, TAC or Veterans Affairs.
Does private health insurance cover my treatment?
This will depend on your policy. Most policies with ancillary or extras cover will provide a rebate for physiotherapy, clinical pilates and remedial massage. At the Physio Fit Studio you can process your health claim immediately using HICAPS.
Does Medicare cover my treatment?
Medicare does not generally cover physiotherapy. However the recently introduced Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) scheme now permits doctors to approve up to five allied health services per year on referral. Usually, this service is only available to people with chronic conditions. Please discuss this option with either your physiotherapist or treating doctor. Please note, Physio Fit does not Bulk Bill. We will claim your visit with Medicare and you will be required to pay a gap of $15 -$30 per visit.
Does Physio Fit treat Workcover and third party patients?
Yes we do, however Workcover and other insurance companies may only partially cover the cost of services at this clinic. All Workcover patients are required to have a referral and CLAIM NUMBER from their treating doctor and are responsible for the balance of payment.
What are the terms for payment and cancellation?
Payment in full is required at the time of consultation. Cash, cheque, EFTPOS, visa and mastercard are accepted. If you need to cancel your appointment we request that you provide at least 24 hours notice if possible to avoid a charge for the time you reserved.
