Telehealth Physiotherapy Available Now

Whilst we are continuing to provide physiotherapy treatment in our clinic, we are now able to offer telehealth appointments also. This will enable you to access your physiotherapist in a 1:1 setting, without leaving home.

It was announced last week that several private health funds have agreed to provide benefits for individual physiotherapy teleconsultations where the following conditions are met:

  • The customer is undergoing an existing course of treatment and the customer has seen the physiotherapist over the past six months, or

  • For new patients, the tele-physiotherapy service has been recommended by their general practitioner or relevant medical specialist, and

  • The primary condition being treated is one of:

    • Post orthopaedic surgery rehabilitation (e.g. Total hip or knee replacement)

    • Chronic musculoskeletal condition (e.g. osteoarthritis)

    • Cardiac rehabilitation

    • Pulmonary rehabilitation, or

    • Pelvic floor muscle training,

Health funds will provide coverage for teleconsultations provided by physiotherapists from Tuesday 14 April 2020 subject to the conditions listed above. Health fund members should check with their health fund to see if they will cover tele-physiotherapy consultations. Some funds may impose additional conditions.

Please email or phone our reception staff if you would like further details about telehealth consultations. We look forward to helping you maintain your health during this difficult time.
