It may be recommended to start with supervised sessions at our facility under the experienced eye of our Accredited Exercise Physiologist, Scott Howard, or your program can be designed to be performed from home. We utilise a free exercise software program called Physitrack, which can be downloaded to your smart phone or tablet, which gives you the ability to message your therapist directly with feedback about your exercises.

 

Our AEP can work with you privately (health fund rebates may apply), or under workers compensation, CTP insurance, Medicare or DVA legislation to improve your health, reduce your pain and restore function. We also offer Telehealth consultations.

 

To book your initial AEP consultation please call our reception on (02) 4314 5183 or book online.
