Elsternwick Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy
The team at Total Health Physio have been servicing the Elsternwick and the inner suburbs of Melbourne since 2011. We are fortunate to offer assessments, treatments and services to adults (over 18) who are living with a disability.
Our team is composed of wonderful Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Exercise Physiologists who are as kind as they are professional.
We visit people in their homes to learn about their goals and understand how our clinicians can help them achieve them. Whether that be reducing or managing pain, obtaining new equipment or ongoing rehabilitation, Total Health Physio is here for you.
Physiotherapy can play a central role in helping patients to find effective relief from chronic muscle or joint pain. It can also help people to build strength and endurance or to enjoy a greater range of mobility. All of these things can work together to significantly improve quality of life.
At Total Health Physio our Physiotherapists work with patients to develop holistic, evidence-based rehabilitation and treatment plans.
We focus on improving balance, mobility, muscle tone and reflexes in order to restore confidence and promote independence.
The role of an Occupational Therapist will differ depending on each client’s needs.
Our therapists can assist with any or all of the following:
- Environmental modifications such as handrails, ramps, entranceways and more
- Prescribing assistive equipment such as scooters, hoists, wheelchairs or walkers
Determining the need for assistive technologies such as screen readers, automated lighting and safety systems.
We are a registered NDIS provider and are passionate about supporting people living with disability.
We work with NDIS participants who are self, plan managed or NDIA managed.
We assist clients who are at home as well as those in Supported Independent Living environments or Specialist Disability Accommodation.

This service is available to anyone in the community including private patients and NDIS participants.

Total Health Physio – An Evidence-Based Healthcare Provider in Elsternwick
We want what’s best for our patients, and that means treatments that are proven to work. Evidence-based means that a treatment has been demonstrated, through research, to be effective.
This relates to both establishing baseline capacities and determining the best course of action for each patient.
For example, if we are working with a client to improve balance, we may engage the Berg Balance Scale as an outcome measure. This is an evidence-based test that provides a clear indicator of someone’s balance at a point in time. Through tests such as this, we can determine a clear starting point, as well as progress across time.
Our focus on evidence-based therapy means we can make sure we’re assisting each and every client in the best way possible, every time.
