NDIS Physiotherapy

Our Gold Coast Sports Physio With Patient


What is an NDIS Physiotherapist?

NDIS Physiotherapists are experts in the movement of the human body and its structure. They work with people of all ages to help treat or manage a broad range of disabilities. We work often with NDIS as it is used to help individuals access our services for a better future. Our goal is to create a comfortable and enjoyable environment where we help you increase your quality of life.
When seeing a Physiotherapist here they will assess your current level of function and chat to you about what their plan would be for you to help improve your quality of life. Once consent id given, we will then create up a service agreement plan to send it to your plan managers for approval.

How can we help our NDIS Participants?

Many disabilities/conditions come with movement and co-ordination deficits and/or pain. Through exercise or hands on treatment we can help improve these deficits and eliminate pain. In doing so you can increase strength, balance and your ability to move without being in so much pain. Allowing you to participate more in the things you love doing. Our NDIS Physiotherapists have great success in assessing, diagnosing, managing, or treating:

Musculoskeletal injuries caused through poor movement patterns and strength due to disability:

Any tears (e.g. ACL & Rotator Cuff)
Fasciitis (e.g. plantar fasciitis)
Bone fractures
Tight neck/headaches

Participant Success Story

Jacky, a 27-year-old female with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) level 2, came in a year ago seeking help with her shoulder and lower back pain. She experienced sharp pains across the top of her shoulder and into her neck when she moved her arms up, and her back pain was across the whole lower back when she picked something up from the ground and slept on her back. She expressed that her pain was affecting her employment, which she looks forward to each week.

During her initial consultation, Jacky was assessed and diagnosed with rotator cuff tendinitis and lower back disc bulges. It was noted during the assessment that these injuries had been caused by poor muscle tone and coordination, which is common in ASD. The consultation also included education on these two injuries, the rehabilitation time frame, and what to expect during the process.

Over the course of about 12 weeks, we successfully treated these injuries and have continued to improve her coordination and muscle tone to help limit further injury or aggravation. Jacky is currently back to work with no pain and attends Doveston Health once a week.
