NDIS Registered Providers
Cairns Total Physio has been providing exemplary physiotherapy and exercise physiology services to the NDIS participants since its inception in 2017. Cairns Total Physio employs caring, compassionate, and professional therapists who expertly structure the rehabilitation and care of each participant based on their individual goals, wishes and beliefs. Our providers work closely with the participant, their family and support workers/coordinators to deliver a smooth hassle-free service to all NDIS participants.
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide more than $22 billion in funding a year to an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is required by law to provide ‘reasonable and necessary supports’ to help eligible people with a disability live more independently. The scheme is designed for people aged under 65.
Every NDIS participant has an individual plan that lists their goals and the funding they have received. NDIS participants use their funding to purchase supports and services that will help them achieve their goals. You have choice and the control over how you use funded supports in your plan. That includes choice of how the supports are given and which service providers you use.
How can Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology help you?
Under the Capacity Building Supports Package (Category 12 and 15) both Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology services are funded to provide support to increase the ability of each participant to perform Activities of Daily Living, as well as maximize their overall Health and Wellbeing.
Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists can provide the following benefits via specific appropriate and evidence based practice:
- Addressing risks (i.e. falls prevention)
- Improve general, cardiac, respiratory, metabolic and psychological function.
- Managing and reducing chronic pain
- Strength & rehabilitation
- Improve quality of life and activities of daily living.
