What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is a significant social reform aimed at providing support and services to Australians living with disability. The NDIS is designed to provide individuals living with a permanent and significant disability with necessary supports they need to live an active life and achieve their goals. It covers a wide range of support services, including assistance with daily activities, access to healthcare, and equipment provision.

What is the role of physiotherapy within the NDIS?

Physiotherapy services under the NDIS play a pivotal role in improving the mobility, function, and overall quality of life for individuals living with disabilities. An NDIS Physio aims to empower individuals to participate in their communities and achieve their goals by enhancing physical function, independence, and quality of life. Tailored strategies can be developed to address physical, mental, and psychosocial needs using a variety of physiotherapy techniques.

What does a NDIS physiotherapist do?

During a consultation, an NDIS physiotherapist will assess individual needs to develop a tailored treatment and rehabilitation plan. A treatment plan may involve an exercise program that uses resistance training, Pilates, and cardiovascular exercise to build strength and fitness. Physical rehabilitation also uses targeted exercises that focus on balance, flexibility, and coordination, which may be complimented with manual therapy and other techniques.  By improving confidence and functional ability, physiotherapy supports individuals to actively participate in the community.
