Virtual Physio Services
Our telehealth options allow for you to access physiotherapy from wherever you are. Virtual physiotherapy appointments are not a replacement of treatment but, rather, a modality that can be used to complement your ongoing therapy. Our physiotherapists use an online program where you can view video examples of the exercises you are meant to perform and you can send instant messages to your physio when you have questions.
HOW WILL VIRTUAL PHYSIO HELP ME?
This type of consultation is great if you have questions about certain exercises you are performing or if you want to discuss your rehab progress. Virtual consults are also great for checking in about postural correction or movement issues, as our physiotherapists are able to answer questions and watch your movements. Virtual physiotherapy can accommodate for last minute schedule changes so that you don’t have to miss your appointment if you aren’t able to make it in person, plus you can stay on track with your program when you travel interstate or internationally.
Ways virtual physio can help:
- Posture Correction
- Exercise Modification
- Movement Problems
- Program Accountability
- Acute Pain
A referral is welcome but not required to see one of our physios.
If you are a WorkCover, Veterans Affairs or Medicare Chronic Disease Management (EPC) patient, you will need a referral.
If you have private health insurance which covers allied health then you will receive a rebate from your health fund.
When you attend a telehealth appointment, you are required to pay via bank transfer or over the phone. Once you have paid, we will send you a receipt so that you may claim with your health fund.
We do not know how much your rebate will be since different funds can provide different rebates.
If you need to know what the rebate will be before your consultation, you will need to contact your Health Fund directly to find out from them.
Medicare does not offer rebates unless you have a Chronic Disease Management referral from your GP. If you have a plan issued from your GP, it can be used on your telehealth appointment. You are required to pay for your appointment in full via phone or bank transfer. We will send off your rebate after payment, and the rebate will be deposited directly into your bank account.
