In most circumstances no doctor referral is required to see a physiotherapist. There are some exceptions to this rule which include:
Musculoskeletal physiotherapists treat any injury in the human musculoskeletal system. In general this includes injuries to muscles/soft tissues, bones/joints (including the spine), and nerves. We also have a good understanding of things that can influence the symptoms of injuries and use a mix of manual techniques and exercise to help you feel better. The key is often to get a good idea of what is happening to then plan your way to recovery.
Sports physiotherapists treat injuries to similar areas of the body but are related to participation in sport or exercise. These are most commonly associated with a change in use/load or trauma. Sports injuries require a management plan that is specific to the level of activity that was occurring prior to injury which can significantly vary from other types.
Please bring with you:
Push Physiotherapy accepts all health funds, but the amount paid by the fund is dependent on both the fund and the level of cover. We are not particularly associated with any fund and therefore encourage those that are concerned, to contact their fund directly for further detail.
HICAPS online claiming is available on site, which allows patients to claim from their health funds immediately.
