Recovery Tip

Did you know that your core muscles, which are the deepest layer of your tummy muscles, should work at all times to brace and protect your back? These muscles switch off due to pain and it takes 50,000 repetitions before they work automatically again to protect your back!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What can I expect in the first consultation?

In your first appointment, we will:

  • Review your relevant medical history
  • Conduct a thorough biomechanical assessment to find the cause of your concern
  • Diagnose your injury and explain to you what this means, what needs to be done, what the expected time frame for your recovery is and what options you have
  • Commence treatment to get you feeling better straight away
  • Teach you a few simple but effective exercises to do at home so you continue to get better
  • Advise you on what to do next and what you should avoid doing

At the end of your session you will feel assured that you are in safe and expert hands!

2. Do I need a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist?

In most instances, the answer is no. Physiotherapists are first contact practitioners. This means you do not need a doctor’s referral, so just give us a call and we will assist you with making an appointment. 
If you are claiming Work Cover or third party insurance, you must first see your GP and acquire a referral in order to satisfy the conditions of approval for these claims.

3. Can I claim physiotherapy on my private health insurance?

Yes, if you have 'extras' cover. The amount your insurance company pays is dependent on your individual policy.  If you would like to find out how much coverage you have, it would be best for you to contact your private health insurance provider to discuss this.

4. What should I bring and wear?

You should wear clothing that you are comfortable in and would also allow your physiotherapist to see and access the areas of concern.  If you already have any tests or imaging done then please bring the films and reports with you.

If you are claiming Work Cover or third party insurance, please also bring your referral and any relevant paperwork.

5. What methods of payment are available?

We accept cash, credit card and EFTPOS. We have HICAPS facility so we can process your private health insurance claim on site and you will only have to pay the gap.
Please note:  All payment is required on the day of treatment.

6. What are the car parking options?

There are Function Well car parking spots in the lower car park (enter from Helen St) or the Commercial Rd car park that are allocated to patrons of Function Well and Le Physique Physiotherapy.  There are plenty of metered street parks available on Commercial Rd and adjacent roads.
