Your NDIS expert


I haven’t met a physio I didn’t like. As far as I’m concerned, these guys (and girls) have the almost impossible task of making small, repetitive, and sometimes uncomfortable exercises fun or, at least, something that you stick to. Under the NDIS, physiotherapists can help our kiddos with all sorts of things, like pain relief, improved mobility, strength and balance, and postural correction.

These physios are on a mission: to get our kiddos and us moving, grooving, and living life to the fullest. Here's a bit on what they bring to the table:

1. Pain Relief: You know those aches and niggles that just won't quit? Physios are like pain detectives, getting to the root of it and working out a plan to give some much-needed relief.

2. Mobility Masters: Whether it's getting from the bed to the bathroom, or mastering a flight of stairs, these champs have a trick up their sleeve to make each step easier and safer.

3. Strength Training: Think of them as personal trainers, but with a super-focus. They're all about building strength, especially in areas that need it the most. It's not about lifting heavy weights, but making daily tasks a breeze.

4. Balancing Act: For those wobbly moments, physios come to the rescue. They're keen on helping improve balance, reducing the risks of falls and boosting confidence in moving about.

5. Posture Perfection: Slouching on the couch or hunching over the phone? Physios are the go-to experts to guide and train the body to maintain that ideal posture, promoting better health and confidence.

6. Tailored Exercise Programs: No two people are the same, and physios get that. They design exercise programs suited to individual needs, ensuring maximum benefit and fun along the way.

7. Equipment Guidance: From walking aids to specialised chairs, physios know their gear. They advise on the best equipment to aid mobility and comfort.

8. Rehabilitation Pros: Recovering from an injury or surgery? These experts guide through the rehabilitation process, ensuring optimal recovery and minimising the risk of further injuries.

9. Family Training: It's a team effort. Physios often guide family members with techniques and exercises that can be practised at home, making the journey smoother.

10. Adaptive Techniques: Sometimes, it's all about tweaking the way we do things. Physios teach adaptive techniques, making daily tasks easier and more efficient.

Physios aren't just about the exercises. They're about empowering individuals to live life more fully, confidently, and joyfully. The beauty of it? The NDIS recognises this and supports participants in accessing these heroes. So, if you're looking for a nudge in the right direction or a gentle push to get moving, you know who to call.

While I've put my heart into aligning these tips with your NDIS path, the road can have its twists. Remember, these are just suggestions. Dive in, explore, and find what truly works for you. Sending you all my best vibes!
