The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides individualised support for people with disability, their families and carers. provides eligible people

Our physiotherapists help people of all age groups and with different conditions to provide the support they need to pursue their goals. We help people take part in the community and to become more independent. Our team are experts in treating children, young adults and the ageing population with a disability, whether it involves heart and lung conditions, neurological and musculoskeletal conditions.

You may need a short burst of care from our physiotherapists, or care for a longer time to achieve your goals. We can put a plan together to help you now, and into the future.

Some health conditions need a number of health experts to work together. Our physiotherapists also work closely with other health workers. Together we can help you manage more complex needs.

In case you have not experienced physiotherapy in the past, rest assured that it is safe, and effective in getting you closer to your goals. We use evidence and research to guide us in working out the most effective treatment for you. We must also meet the same strict legal requirements to work, like your GP and nurses.
