Physiotherapy assists children and adults with movement disorders. The therapist conducts a thorough assessment and establishes goals with the person, their family/carers so that a treatment plan can be put in place. This may involve just one or two sessions or a period of weekly visits. A referral is not required, but can be helpful to coordinate therapy. We are a registered NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) provider.
Sessions can be conducted wherever the person feels most comfortable: at our clinic, at their home/kinder/school. Hydrotherapy (water exercise) sessions can also be arranged.
Our therapists see children and adults with a wide variety of conditions including:
* Developmental concerns: delayed milestones such as crawling/walking, balance and coordination problems
* Other conditions which have necessitated access to the NDIS.
What we can Provide:
As our Physiotherapists from both Macedon Ranges Children’s Therapy and Sports Physio and Active Rehab have worked in this community for many years, they have well established relationships with other health professionals, educators and sporting clubs. Your therapist will utilise this wide knowledge base as they work with you to meet your goals.
NDIS participants will have access to the extensive skills and expertise of the following Physiotherapists who are currently registered NDIS providers. They will be happy to refer you to other NDIS registered Providers in the area that can also assist you to meet your goals. This may be other services and therapists such as Early Childhood Intervention, Speech therapists, Occupational therapists, Podiatrists or Orthotists.
