What NDIS Registered Physiotherapists Do

Our AHPRA and NDIS registered physiotherapists are experts in the structure of the human body and movement. They work with people of all ages to treat a broad range of physical health conditions including physical injuries and musculoskeletal conditions, chronic health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, osteoarthritis and stroke. Physiotherapists are involved in the assessment, diagnosis, planning and re-conditioning of all things muscle, bone and tissue.

Physiotherapists assess, diagnose, plan and manage the care of patients across a broad range of areas with musculoskeletal, cardiothoracic and neuro-muscular problems. They help patients with chronic diseases, provide lifestyle modification and self-management advice (exercises or otherwise), prescribe aids and equipment, as well as prescribing and supervise exercises for both patients and carers. They can also provide health promotion education, occupational (daily activity) health assessments and injury prevention protocols.

Each individual is assessed independently, before being given specific recommendations and interventions targeted at improving that person’s physical strength, mobility and independence. 

How Can A Physiotherapist Help?

Typically our physiotherapists are called upon to see anyone who is having issues or concerns about their musculoskeletal system (muscles, bones and joints). This may include someone who is experiencing reduced strength, pain or altered physical function. As a registered NDIS provider, our physiotherapists may be useful for management of acute (short term) or more chronic (long term) physical health challenges. 

Our Physiotherapists Treat:

  • Diabetes

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Osteoporosis

  • Obesity

  • Stroke and other neurological illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease or Multiple Sclerosis

  • Cancer, palliative care and lymphoedema

  • Musculoskeletal injuries

  • Muscular deterioration

  • Stabilisation and protection of vulnerable joints

  • Pain management

  • Activity based injuries and prevention

This list is not exhaustive, and it may be better to consider the methods of a physiotherapist: to address musculoskeletal issues, increasing physical mobility, well-being and independent living skills.

Eligibility

The NDIS is only available to those under the age of 65, who have an assessed and diagnosed disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.

A good place to start is the NDIS Access Checklist, which can be accessed by clicking here. Alternatively, you can call the NDIS directly on 1800 800 110 or visit the NDIS website by clicking here.

Book An NDIS Registered Physiotherapist

Once NDIS approved, most participants will work with an NDIS Planner and/or Local Area Coordinator to develop a support plan. Each participant develops an individualised plan that identifies the specific outcomes they wish to achieve, the disability supports that will be funded by the NDIS and other supports they require; often an occupational therapy assessment (click here) can aid in this process of identifying needs.

The NDIS is unique in that participants are now given choice and control over the supports that they receive. If funding for “Improved Daily Living” is included in the plan, then this often means that physiotherapy is covered. Then the next step is to speak with My Care Provider to book an appointment.
