Inspired Physiotherapy can help:
Private patients – Hicaps is an automatic claims system where your private health fund card can be swiped and the claim is done on the spot so you only have to pay the gap. The gap amount will depend on your health fund and your level of cover.
Athletes – From the novice beginner athlete to the elite professional. Physiotherapy can help to alleviate your pain and treat those frustrating injuries that keep you from participating in your sport. We’ll help to identify the true cause of your injury, treat it and educate you on how to prevent re-aggravation and get you back on the field as soon as possible.
Pre and Post Operative Rehabilitation – Physiotherapy can help to strengthen you prior to surgery which enables a smoother recovery post surgery and it can also help with your recovery post surgery with hands on techniques and gym or home based strengthening exercises.
Other Types of Services:
WorkCover (the injured worker) – If you have sustained a work place injury and physiotherapy has been recommended for your recovery you will require a WorkCover Medical Certificate from your Nominated Treating Doctor and also your insurance claim number from your employer’s insurance company. We at Inspired Physiotherapy are able to provide hands on physiotherapy, graded gym/home programs for recovery and attended case conferences with doctors and insurers to ensure a safe return to work.
Comprehensive Third Party (CTP) – Have you been in a car accident and suffered an injury? Whether it be whiplash or back pain, recent studies have shown that early intervention with physiotherapy treatment and exercises can help you get back to normal life quickly.
Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) – Our physiotherapist is registered to treat clients that are eligible for services provided by DVA. The client will require a referral from their treating doctor and the Department of Veterans Affairs will cover the cost of the entire consult fee.
Medicare Enhanced Primary Care Program (EPC) – The Medicare EPC program was introduced by Medicare for those with chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, arthritic conditions and cardiac abnormalities that would benefit from physiotherapy. If you qualify for this program you will require a referral from your treating doctor and this will give you 5 visits to a Allied Health Practitioner (including physiotherapy) per calendar year. The EPC will cover the majority of the consult cost therefore there is only a small gap for the client to pay.
Our physiotherapist is trained in a number of different types of treatment techniques to treat and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system including:
Mobilisation and manipulation of joints using ‘hands on’ techniques – this form of therapy helps to increase range of motion, reduce pain and get you back to your everyday activities as soon as possible.
Massage – massage encourages musculature to relax. Not only does it feel great but it helps to ‘switch off’ overactive muscles that could be causing your pain.
Dry Needling – Have you ever felt tough, stiff bands of muscles in areas where you feel pain? Dry needling is when small acupuncture needles are inserted into stiff or tight fascial lines to encourage healing and relaxation of the fascia in the area.
Interferential & Therapeutic Ultrasound – Both forms of treatment are great for acute stages of an injury that are too sensitive for touch. They help to relax overactive muscles and settle down swelling.
Exercise Prescription – Need some guidance on what exercises to do pre or post surgery, to recover from an injury or just for general fitness? Our physiotherapist can develop an individualized program to cater for your individual needs.
