Total Health Physiotherapy
Our boutique Physiotherapy services are delivered to individuals at their home, as well as our work within residential aged care to help people live enriching lives! We recruit lovely Physiotherapists who really love their work and we believe it shows in the holistic improvements we strive for.
- Private home visits, assessments and reports
- Rehabilitation programs
- Physiotherapy under the NDIS/homecare
- Empathy as well as therapy
We work with patients to perform holistic, evidence-based rehabilitation based exercises to improve physical capacity (strength, mobility, reflexes, balance, endurance) and manage pain.
We thrive at the opportunity to help the aging population and adults living with a disability or chronic illness.

What is Included in our Physiotherapy
The initial assessment is to look at the environment, review the person’s medical history, medications, and perform functional tests to identify deficiencies.
As an example, we may test endurance by performing a six-minute walk test together. Or simply record the time it takes the patient to sit and stand 5 times. These tests provide baseline measurements so we can reassess and understand the effectiveness of our therapy.
Following the assessment, we’ll set realistic and meaningful goals and prepare a personalised treatment plan (or formalised NDIS plan) and work towards those goals together. The plan will include:
- Goal setting
- Frequency of sessions
- Expected engagement length. We strive to be able to reduce the frequency of sessions by fully rehabilitating the person, however at times, a long term engagement is beneficial
- The prescription of exercises (may be performed individually, or with a carer)
- Information on how to progress the exercise therapy
- Recommendations for assistive equipment or Occupational Therapy that may be beneficial
Can I choose my appointment time?
Yes, you can! We operate between the hours of 9am and 6pm. If we’re needed outside of these hours, please contact us to see what we can do to help.
Do you primarily provide Physiotherapy to individuals or groups?
Currently, the vast majority of our services is individual therapy. This is because we love the one-on-one approach and we believe our patients benefit from more personalised therapy.
What does evidence-based Physiotherapy mean?
Evidence-based Physiotherapy means providing healthcare that is supported by research.
As an example, research suggests that cancer patients who are recovering from chemotherapy have better outcomes when Physiotherapy and exercise is included in their rehabilitation.
There are many studies to prove exercise-therapy leads to benefits for mood levels and mental health, which is vital for our overall health and quality of life. These benefits are particularly important for Australia’s aging population and those living with a disability.
Will I know the long-term costs of the service?
We like to help you plan for your service and the long-term costs that go with it, as much as possible. This information can be provided during the initial assessment.
This includes calculating funding from the NDIS, researching equipment providers, Medicare rebates and other variables that make it difficult to forecast the costs of the services.
In what ways is your service high-quality?
Our passionate and dedicated staff deliver the highest level of care possible, to patients at home or within aged care facilities.
This passion and high level of care go hand in hand with our core values which we practise and preach every single day. The core values driving our service are:

What is your entire process?
Step 1 – Who We Work With
We offer our services under several capacities at Total Health Physio, predominantly:
- NDIS participants
- Homecare clients
- Residential care clients
- Medicare (CPM plans – gap fee involved)
- Individuals with private health or are self-funded
- DVA (Department of Veteran Affairs)
- TAC (Transport Accident Commission)
We help adults (over 18) who are living with physical and/or neurological disabilities.
Step 2 – Lodge a Referral
After we receive a referral or contact enquiry we will respond within 24 hours and organise the first assessment within a week.
One of our lovely Physiotherapists will meet the person at a mutually beneficial time. Family and/or support staff are welcome to be present.
Step 3 – Services
We do an extensive initial assessment to ensure best patient outcomes for the short and long term. If the person is an NDIS participant, we help them submit relevant documentation to the NDIS for funding of Physiotherapy or acquiring Assistive Technology (equipment).
We work with the participant on their Physiotherapy journey towards their meaningful goals.
One beautiful aspect of our physiotherapy service is the companionship between our clinicians and patients.
Through dedication and holistic care, we can really reach new heights together!
