Depends on the injury and the appointment type. For your first physiotherapy appointment we allow 45 minutes to 1 hour, which allows us plenty of time to get to know you and your injury and go through a thorough assessment. Subsequent appointments are 30mins long.

  • Any Doctors notes or referrals if you may have one

  • Your private health fund card if you are with a fund

  • Appropriate clothing so we can assess the injured area (eg shorts for knee and hip pain)

We accept most/all private health funds.
