Can Physios Do Dry Needling?
Physiotherapists undergo post-graduate training in order to safely and effectively conduct dry needling as a treatment. Dry needling can be applied from a western, biomedical perspective as well as from a Chinese/eastern perspective (acupuncture).

What to expect in your consult?

Physiotherapists are ‘primary care providers’ – any member of the public can see a physio, and you do not need a referral. We have an HIPCAPS terminal for on-the-spot claiming from your health fund (if you have one), and welcome anyone that we are able to help move well and feel great!

Physiotherapy consults will involve a comprehensive assessment to ascertain your pain history and medical history, and then a physical examination to discover the actual cause of your problem – not just the symptoms. Treatment can vary, but will often include a combination of hands-on manual therapy, massage, joint mobilisation, taping, exercise therapy, electrophysical modalities, dry needling and many other forms of treatment.

If your GP has provided you with up to 5 physiotherapy consults as part of your Enhanced Primary Care plan, you are entitled to a Medicare rebate on part of your consult fee. You can take your receipt to Medicare and they will rebate you, or you can claim online via the relevant Medicare portal.

Please be sure to bring your GP referral along with you when you attend our clinic so that we can process this for you.
