Services to our Patients

Southern Sports Physiotherapy was established in Engadine in 1990, providing professional treatment and rehabilitation to the greater Engadine area, and in the year 2000 expanded the clinic by opening the Helensburgh branch.

We are a multidisciplinary clinic combining a variety of services such as physiotherapy, acupuncture, hydrotherapy and massage therapy.

Physiotherapy covered by Medicare - Patients must have an EPC plan (Enhanced Primary Care Programme) developed by their GP (MBS-720, 722, 730). To be eligible for management under the EPC the patient must have one or more chronic conditions which have lasted or is/are likely to last for at least six months or a terminal condition and have complex needs requiring multi disciplinary care from a GP and at least two other allied health care providers.

GP’s must use an allied health referral form to refer patients for physiotherapy. Patients receive a maximum of five treatments per calendar year. Complex conditions which may benefit from physiotherapy include:

  • Mobility problems;
  • Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis;
  • Musculoskeletal disorders;
  • Chronic pain conditions e.g. low back pain;
  • General de conditioning.
  • Sports Event Coverage

Our physiotherapists have provided direct sport physiotherapy coverage services for many sporting teams. Contact Southern Sports Physiotherapy to discuss how we can help your sporting team with the management of sporting injuries or with the preparation of your team for competition.

“Bill and the team at Southern Sports Physio were great when treating me after my shoulder rotator cuff surgery. They made me feel  confident from the start that I was going to make a full recovery. They not only provided in clinic treatment but were able to organise and supervise me on my gym program to fully restore my strength so i could return to my heavy work duties”
