Physiotherapy encompasses a wide range of services including listening, assessing, problem solving, diagnosing and treating individual and unique injuries and conditions. It is a physiotherapists goal to find the cause of an injury or dysfunction and return an individual to their optimal movement and function.
Dry needling is a tool used to alleviate pain and restore function. Dry needling is a gentle, generally pain free insertion of a very fine acupuncture needle into muscle or fascia. The insertion of the needle stimulates the tight muscle, increases blood flow, and stimulates pain relieving nerve fibres. When dry needling is performed by a skilled practitioner, it is a very effective treatment tool to help restore normal muscle function.
TAPING / BRACING
Physiotherapists use taping techniques or braces to aid in rehabilitation after an injury, for example after an ankle sprain.
EXERCISE / MOVEMENT RE-TRAINING
Following injury or pin, the body can adapt to move in a non-optimal way. This may be necessary in the acute painful situation but not always a good thing for the long term. We provide a full body assessment, looking at functional movements related to your pain or injury and provide exercise to retrain your optimal movement patterns to reduce pain or improve function.
Whether you have a running injury or want to improve your technique, at physiozest we can help. With simple cues or change in footwear we can work together to improve or re-train your run style to prevent injury or improve efficiency.

Once you’ve completed the sizing process, fitting a bicycle comes down to the contact or connection points between the cyclist and their bicycle and adjusting those moving parts on the chosen bicycle. These five connection points (9 on a time trial or triathlon bike) are the right and left foot, the pelvis, and right and left hands.

DO I NEED A REFERRAL FOR PHYSIO?
If you are a private patient, you DO NOT require a referral. For workers compensations or third party claims and EPC (Enhanced Primary Care) you do require a referral from your GP. If you are a DVA (Department Of Veterans’ Affairs) patient you will require a D904 referral from your GP.
How much rebate do I get?
HOW MUCH REBATE DO I GET?
Unfortunately we cannot tell you how much rebate you get with your Private Health Insurance as all funds repay a differing amount. We have HICAPS available on site to swipe your Health Fund card at time of treatment and provide you with an immediate rebate, and you just need to pay the gap fee, which can be paid by cash, card (eftpos) or cheque.
EPC rebates can also be provided on the spot. The rebate is approximately $52 per session back into your bank account, you will then just need to pay the gap fee.
WHAT DO I BRING?
Please bring with you any scans or correspondance you have from your GP, specialist or other health care provider.
Wear loose comfortable clothing you can move easily in and bring any footwear you wear often such as work shoes, or sports shoes.
For private patients that are covered by a Health Fund, please bring your current Health Fund card so that we can claim your rebate on the spot.
If you are being treated under workers compensation or third party, you will need to bring along your GP referral as well as any correspondance from your insurance company. You will also need to provide information such as claim numbers, case manager details and insurance company contact details.
If you are being treated under an EPC (Enhanced Primary Care) plan, you are required to bring your GP referral and the management plan that your GP or nurse would have provided to you. You will also need to bring with you your current medicare card so that the rebate can be claimed on the spot.
