Frequently Asked Questions

Each person’s situation is unique, so the number of visits might differ. Generally, after your first check-up, our physio team will suggest a plan outlining how often you should come in to achieve the best results.

Most of the time, you don’t need a referral to see us. However, in some instances or due to insurance rules, you might need one. And if you’ve got any medical documents or scans linked to your condition, please bring them with you. This helps us understand your situation better and provide the right care.

Choose comfy clothes that aren’t too tight. This allows you to move freely and lets us easily access the area we need to check or treat.

Your first visit might be a bit longer, usually around an hour, as we’ll be getting a full picture of your condition. After that, regular treatments typically last between 30 and 45 minutes.

Absolutely! Just bring along your health insurance card, and we can process it straight away with HICAPS. The amount you get back depends on your cover. And if your GP’s given you an Enhanced Primary Care form (EPC), you might get a Medicare refund, too. For a clearer picture, you can check out the detailed info here.
