About our service
Own Body provides mobile physiotherapy, rehabilitation, Pilates and personal training in clients’ homes across metropolitan Melbourne. Above all else our goal is to assist clients to maintain their lifestyle, and to improve and maximise their capacity to live as independently as possibly. An important feature of Own Body is that we endeavour to always commence treatment within a maximum of 3 days from referral, which can be especially vital immediately post discharge when the patients require regular therapy or monitoring, but are unable to drive.
We have a growing team of physiotherapists specialising in a range of conditions including orthopaedic, neurological, cardiothoracic, respiratory, trauma, falls prevention and reconditioning rehabilitation. All of our therapists have several years’ experience working in hospitals and/or private practices prior to commencing with Own Body – so you can rest assured your are referring to an experienced colleague.
Own Body therapists treat private patients as well as those covered under funding bodies such as DVA, TAC, WorkCare, EPC/GPMP/CDM programs or private health care with Ancilliary (“Extras”) Cover. Treatment sessions are charged at $125/initial and $115/ongoing, which is charged to the client or their financial representative after each session. We are also working in partnership with several leading hospitals to provide seamless transitions directly from acute inpatient care to domicilliary rehabilitation for an agreed number of visits charged to the facility. These partnerships have resulted in significant financial benefits to these hospitals as well as excellent patient experience.
Own Body recognises the privilege of being entrusted with the care of your patients in their homes. As physiotherapists committed to the ongoing health and wellbeing of our patients, we also understand the importance of referring to a trusted colleague. As such, we would enjoy the opportunity to visit your facility and meet with your staff as a representative of the Own Body team. If you wish to schedule a time or have any queries regarding Own Body services, please contact us by email or phone (03) 9696 2639
or (03) 9-OWN-BODY.
We are looking forward to helping your clients reach their Own Body’s potential.
