FAQs

No, we can see you straight away for your problem and start your rehab without delay. We can even send you for images or discuss your problem with the best doctors and specialists in Newcastle.

If your problem is covered by Workcover, Compulsory Third Party or the Department of Veterans Affairs, we will need a referral for these appointments.

Comfortable clothes that you can move in that allow us to have a good look at the problem area. If you forget, don’t worry, we have some spare training gear (that is clean!!). Our brand of physio is active – we will get you moving.

184 Parry Street, Newcastle West. It is West of Stewart Avenue, between and Denison Street, across the road from the TAFE and BP service station.

And for a Newcastle Physio clinic, there is plenty of free parking!!

YES – and it’s free!! We have our own carpark, it’s the first driveway past our clinic. The carpark is drive through, it allows you to drive in from Parry Street, then drive out onto Wood street.

We also have free parking on the street at the front door that is free for an hour, but it is a clearway before 9am.

They all do different things, so I just answer with what we do.
We strive to be leaders in our field and provide you with the highest value care possible. Your experience here will be about more than your symptoms, like how they are affecting your life, what you need to get back to and why that is important to you.
We don’t use treatment machines, gimmicks, painful tools or boring exercise sheets. We don’t tell you to stop running, stop training, stop living. We do make rehab fun, active and comprehensive.
We do help you to get better than you were before.
You will get an answer as to what is wrong, what you can do now, what we need to do and how to do it. What we do, we do here in our treatment rooms and 2 fully equipped gyms, allowing us to thoroughly and accurately test and improve the components of what you need to get better.
So we’re the perfect place for long term pain and injury problems, and sports and surgical rehab.

You have all the information we need to help you, but things like letters, reports and scans are helpful. We have the software of most imaging places here in clinic, and are in regular contact with the best medical and orthopaedic specialists, so we communicate regularly with anyone else you have seen. Basically, if it’s important to you, then bring it along.

Toggle ContentWe have longer appointment times for a reason. We are interested in the whole story, so the first time you see us you’ll need an hour. There are even longer sessions for more complex, long term pain problems. Our follow up physio sessions are 30 minutes, and our Physio Performance gym sessions are 45 minutes, allowing a full training and rehab session.
These are the longest and most value packed sessions in Newcastle Physio!

Yes, for Medicare rebated appointments you need a special referral (called an EPC) from your GP. There is a gap for these appointments.

We have different services, depending on what you need.

Most treatment paths start with an initial assessment. Our normal physio initial assessment is $163.

While you might find it cheaper, you won’t find better value.
So much so, if you aren’t happy, we’ll refund your money.

Good question. This really comes down to what you value.

If you want the cheapest treatment, with a huge amount of passive therapy where you are lying down and hooked up to machines and hot packs, then we aren’t for you.
