Do you charge a gap for your services?

What do I need to bring to my first appointment?
Any necessary referral (Medicare/D904 or other) medical history, medication lists, a drink bottle, towel, loose comfortable clothing and closed toed shoes.
What can I expect during my appointments?
The first session will be an initial consultation where we will gather your full medical history and complete a physical assessment to help guide us to create an exercise program specifically for you which is then administered in the following sessions. You are reassessed at a later date to evaluate your progress and advance the program if necessary.
What is the difference between an physiotherapist and exercise physiologist?
Physiotherapists use a hands on approach and often diagnose inuries in the acute stages whereas an exercise physiologist treats people who already have a diagnosed condition and specialise in exercise prescription as a form of treatment for your conditions.
