About our service
Own Body provides mobile physiotherapy, occupational therapy and podiatry in clients’ homes across the east coast of Australia. 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.
When our wait lists do increase, we are transparent with our clients and referrers so you can have realistic expectations of when the service will commence.
We have a growing team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and podiatrys experienced in a range of conditions including orthopaedic, neurological, cardiothoracic, respiratory, trauma, falls prevention and reconditioning rehabilitation. We do not hire new graduates: each of our therapists has 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 NDIS, Workers Compensation Schemes, Home Care Packages, EPC/GPMP programs or private health care with Ancilliary (“Extras”) Cover. We also work directly with several public and private hospitals to provide hospital substitution programs such as HITH, RITH, TCP and more. We also provide hospital substitution programs to health insurers or their subsidiaries such as Remedy and HSS (Home Support Services) and in most cases, Own Body can be selected as a preferred provider when referring to these organisations in our service area.
Treatment sessions are charged at Fees can be found here.
