FAQ

Do I need a referral from a Doctor?
No! Physiotherapists are primary health practitioners so private patients do not need a referral to see us. The only exception is for EPC, Workcover, Veterans Affairs and CTP.

Do you accept CTP and Worker’s Compensation claims?
If you are planning on claiming your injury through an insurance company then it is advisable to see your GP to get a referral to see a Turramurra Sports & Spinal Physiotherapist – this makes claim management easier and reduces claim dispute issues from insurers. If you already have a claim number please bring this and details of your insurer to your initial appointment.

I am going for an operation. Do you provide rehabilitation programs?
Yes, absolutely. We can customise post-operative rehabilitation program based on the protocol set out by your surgeon.

My Dr. gave me a referral to see a different Physiotherapist. Can I still come to Turramurra Sports & Spinal Physiotherapy?
You are totally entitled to choose your own therapist! Simply bring the referral in with you to your first session and we will liaise with the referring doctor to inform them that you have commenced treatment with us.

What methods of payment do you accept?
Insurance claims are billed directly to the insurer provided all necessary claim numbers and information is provided to us.
Private patients need to settle their accounts at the end of each treatment session. We accept EFTPOS, Visa/Mastercard payments, cash and cheques.

Can I claim private health insurance rebates?
Yes, and ON THE SPOT!
Bring your health fund card with you to the consult as we us use the HICAPS system to arrange direct funds transfer of your rebate, saving you a trip to the health fund.
Some funds also pay a rebate for orthotics. Check your individual fund for amount of cover and the services covered.

What do I need to bring to my first session?
It is advisable to bring along any x-rays and scan results that you may already have had taken, a pair of shorts if the injury is to a body part that is under normal clothing, your private health fund card (if you are a member) and means of paying for your consult – ie cash, cheque, credit card. The more information we have, the more effect your treatment will be!

Can I purchase Orthotics as Turramurra Sports & Spinal Physiotherapy?
Yes!
Our clinics use state-of-the-art computer software and footplate scanning technology called “Gaitscan” to assess foot function and order individual custom moulded orthotics. These are excellent for reducing Achilles Tendon, shin, knee and lower back problems.

How many sessions will I need to get better?
In your initial assessment your therapist will give you a “Patient Action Plan” which will outline your treatment program and how many sessions we estimate to get you back to full health. Your progress will be regularly checked throughout this period to ensure excellent progress is being made at all times.
