We are open and Telehealth is here!

Do not let Social Distancing affect your health and fitness.

At MPPFG, we are now offering Telehealth consultations.

What is Telehealth:

Telehealth is essentially an entire clinic and its services at your home. At MPPFG, we will be able to deliver online, live streamed physiotherapy consultations over Telehealth.

Education, exercise prescription and ergonomic advice are majors pillar of physiotherapy management. These treatments can all be effectively delivered by Telehealth. Evidence suggests that Telehealth can be as effective as a face-to-face consultation. This allows you to continue your treatment, rehabilitation and improve your fitness when our movements are restricted. If you can’t come to us, we can still reach you.

We will be offering the following services via Telehealth:

  1. 1:1 Consultations.
  2. Individualised indoor/outdoor exercise programs based on available equipment.
  3. Group classes
  4. Running assessment
  5. Pain education
  6. Exercise Physiology consultations
  7. Dietetics consultations
  8. Myotherapy consultations

In accordance with the Australian Physiotherapy Association (https://australian.physio/media/australian-health-funds-announce-tele-physiotherapy-consultations?fbclid=IwAR2KCvgE8EdQxFU_JZIT8H910L6BFbz-kTOzxFEnSvI77DOdsOCknZAmvWc), private health insurance companies are working towards making Telehealth consultations regular practice. We will be accepting online payment for Telehealth consultations, and there will be different rates for Telehealth consultations to reduce out of pocket costs. Please contact our reception by calling (03) 9534 0611 to find out more about Telehealth.

What if I require hands on treatment?
Our clinic is still open for face-to-face consultations, if required. You can call our reception on (03) 9534 0611 to make an appointment.
