Costs of splints, dressings, compression garments, therapy equipment etc. are variable and should be discussed with your therapist.

A referral from your treating doctor is preferred and is essential if you are claiming under WorkCover or similar insurer. The referring doctor is responsible for coordinating client care and will receive detailed treatment plans and client progress reports. We understand the importance of early treatment for acute injuries and will make every attempt to schedule clients for immediate treatment.
