Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists are qualified to provide a range of services to help you improve your mobility, but in addition Physiotherapists have the expertise to provide individual hands-on treatment to assist you with your rehabilitation process.

Will integratedliving provide any exercise equipment or mobility aids during the Physiotherapy session?
Depending on your needs, we can provide and/or assist with purchase of exercise equipment and mobility aids to help you with your treatment.
Can I keep the exercise equipment and mobility aids that are provided or purchased during the session?
Your Physiotherapist will advise during treatment and discuss any additional equipment costs with you however most of the time, yes these are yours to keep at the end of any treatment, course or program.
An initial assessment will be conducted to determine your health conditions and presenting issues so the Physiotherapist can determine the most appropriate course of treatment. This may include massage therapy but it is important to remember that this isn't always the most effective treatment for long term improvements.
Unfortunately integratedliving does not provide acupuncture as a service offering.
Will you be able to organise a reimbursement for exercise equipment that I have purchased with my home care package under this service?
We cannot guarantee that you will be reimbursed if you had purchased exercise equipment before your assessment by our Physiotherapists. We strongly advise that you get assessed with us first to ensure you are getting the appropriate equipment and have our Physiotherapist and Case Manager organise the purchase for you.
