We provide follow up physiotherapy home visits post surgery, in particular for people who have had total hip and total knee replacements.

We can also provide home visit physiotherapy sessions for Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) clients, provided they are living within a 10 minute drive from the practice in Mitcham.

Do physios do home visits?

Across Australia, these practitioners can visit the residences of those requiring care, allowing them to avoid having to physically head to a local clinic. At BodyMotion, we provide our services to those needing in-home support that’s convenient and affordable. In order to access this level of care, you do not need a referral from a GP to do so – as per the guidelines set by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
Sessions typically vary from 30 minutes onwards, depending on the severity of your symptoms and circumstances. The initial consultation is generally longer, allowing the therapist to carefully assess your current situation, physical capabilities and to plan the next best steps. During this time, they’ll also ask you questions about your medical background, work habits, lifestyle and genetics. For more information on all of the aspects these sessions are permitted to address, visit the official healthdirect site from the Australian Government.
Costs also vary, depending on how many sessions you will require and if it’s the first time receiving treatment. Depending on your private health insurance policy, your in-home physio sessions may be covered by a rebate. Note that it is not covered by Medicare.
Your practitioner will set certain objectives around your condition and give your transparency around how much treatment you will need. In some cases, your condition may not be ‘curable’, but symptom management is often a positive outcome for most patients. Depending on how severe your discomfort is, you may need several sessions to feel significant results. Meanwhile, some patients feel relief after their first in-home appointment.

A Relaxation Massage is a great way to pamper yourself, reduce stress and recharge your energy levels. Using a combination of relaxing massage strokes, usually with a lighter pressure, you can opt for a full body massage or choose the areas you would like to have massaged which can include the back, shoulders, legs, feet, arms, hands, neck, head and face.
