What is a physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists are healthcare professionals who use ‘hands-on’ techniques, such as massage and manipulation, to relieve your symptoms. They also give advice and prescribe exercise to support your recovery.  


Private health insurance

Optimum Physio is recognised by all major private health insurers.

Depending on your insurer, you may need a GP referral before you can use your private health insurance with us. To make this process as speedy as possible, we have partnered with DocTap, who can provide same-day GP referrals to all secondary care services.  

Once you’ve got your referral (if necessary), you’ll normally be offered an appointment with one of our physiotherapists at your preferred location, within 24 hours.


Private self-fund

No need to get a GP referral if you’re paying for a physiotherapist yourself. To ensure we remain competitive, our prices are set regionally and can be found at the bottom of each clinic page.


Offers and discounts

You can also get 10% off when pre-purchasing blocks of 6 or more treatments online. We recommend you speak to a physiotherapist first to determine how many sessions you need.
