Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to see my doctor first?

Most patients can go straight to their Physiotherapist for treatment. Physiotherapists are considered primary contact practitioners and here at The Physio Clinic Great Lakes we have good relationships with local doctors who we can contact directly if necessary. Treatment of injured workers requires a referral.

Can I be treated under Medicare?

There is a system within Medicare that provides limited treatment at your doctor’s discretion. Not everyone qualifies for treatment under this program. It would be best to check with your GP or check with us first.

Can Physiotherapists request x-rays?

Yes, Physiotherapists can write requests for x-rays. If you have x-rays or other scan results, make sure you bring them along with you to your consultation.

Do I have to book in advance?

Yes, it is best to phone for an appointment. We would normally be able to arrange an appointment within 24-48 hours. We also now offer online bookings – click here to book online.
