Our Services

Appointments

If you would like an appointment, you can call 02 5301 6585 and select your closest location or enter your details below on the online contact page, and one of our team members will contact you to arrange a suitable appointment time shortly.

Consultations

Initial appointments are typically 45 minutes in duration. Subsequent consultations are 30 minutes For clients seeing us through a WorkCover claim through SIRA NSW or the NDIS, we will usually require 60 minutes. DVA clients attend 30 minute consults.

Private Clients

If you have private health cover you may be eligible to claim a rebate for Exercise Physiology, depending on your type and level of cover. Each Private Health Insurer is different, and therefore the benefits available will vary. Please contact your insurer if this is important to you and let us know if you plan to claim rebates.

Medicare Patients

Clients presenting with a Chronic/Complex Condition or who have Type 2 Diabetes may be eligible for a rebate under Medicare if you are referred by your General Practitioner with a specific referral. 

In order to help you get the best treatment possible and see you for a consult longer than the 20 minutes that Medicare reimburse us for, we charge a gap fee. Please contact us if this will be an issue so we can further explain the treatment process and ensure you are looked after appropriately and in a timely manner.

Veteran’s Affairs 

We service patients under the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) with eligible GOLD or WHITE cards. Motion as Medicine provides Exercise Physiology services to eligible War Veterans and War Widows. Entitled Veterans can be referred for Exercise Physiology sessions by their General Practitioner with a D904 referral form. Your GP will explain why you are being referred, but in brief:

  • Gold Card holders are entitled to clinically necessary treatment covered by DVA’s health care arrangements for all health conditions.
  • White Card holders are entitled to clinically necessary treatment for certain accepted conditions/disability

Our treatment plans are all safe and supported by evidence based practice to ensure that you are making positive changes to your health and medical conditions.

NDIS

Motion as Medicine practitioners commit to the wellbeing of all their clients, and have a reputation for being open, honest and empathetic, especially with those patients with disabilities.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme was developed to provide long term, effective care, and we share the same goal. We understand the difficulties of NDIS planning, preparation and budgeting. So we take pride in giving our participants on the NDIS full access to our team on the phone, via e-mail or in person to plan goals, sessions and ensure our treatment is extremely beneficial to their function and quality of life.

We currently see NDIS participants who are plan managed or self-managed. For more information and to ask any questions about our work with people with disabilities, please call us on (02) 5301 6585.

WorkCover/CTP

We provide Work Conditioning programs to assist injured workers to return to full duties at home and at work, to their optimal capacity.

We provide one-on-one care in the initial phases of treatment to educate and develop an appropriate, goal orientated, functional program. As the patient progresses, more independence is promoted to ensure greater self-management whilst under our guidance to set them up with the best possible long term management for their workplace injury.

If you are interested in our Workers Compensation or CTP programs, please discuss a referral with your Nominated Treating Doctor (NTD) or give our friendly team a call on (02) 5301 6585 to find out more.

My Aged Care

We have an ageing society in Australia, paticularly in rural communities. Many rural residents are lovers of the land and can’t part ways with their homes, even if they are in need of regular care and assistance that may be on offer in aged care facilities.

 We love nothing more than working with the elderly to improve or maintain their function, strength, independence and quality of life, to ensure they can stay out of institutionalised care for as long as they wish. Check out My Aged Care packages online or call Government services to see if you may be eligible. In a nutshell, you may be eligible if you have:  

  • noticed a change in what you can do or remember
  • been diagnosed with a medical condition or reduced mobility
  • experienced a change in family care arrangements, or
  • experienced a recent fall or hospital admission.
