WHAT IS EXTEND PHYSIOTHERAPY?

Our physiotherapists at Extend help you get the most out of life. They help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury. They listen to your needs to tailor a treatment specific to your condition. As first contact practitioners, you don’t need a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists, doctors, and other health professionals will often work as part of a team to plan and manage treatment for a specific condition.

Do I need a referral to see a physio?

Patients do not need a referral to attend physiotherapy with the exception of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA), Workers Compensation (claim number required) and GP Management Plans (EPC referrals).

Can I claim my private health insurance?

Extend Physiotherapy can claim your private health insurance rebates at the time of treatment, leaving patients to pay only the gap. The rebate amount depends on your level of cover and the particular insurer.

How long will my treatment take?

Initial appointments take between 30 and 45 minutes depending on the injury. Subsequent consultations take between 15 and 20 minutes.

How many times will I need to come back?

Extend Physiotherapy strive to get the patient to participate in their own recovery. Every injury is varied and our physiotherapists will encourage you to participate to promote your recovery with exercises.
