Health fund rebates and referrals

You don’t need a medical referral to consult our skilled physiotherapists. Just call and book an appointment. Most private health funds offer rebates for physiotherapy treatments. 

You may also be able to claim for our Pilates classes. As they are very small and often on a one-to-one basis, you are likely to get a substantial rebate from your health fund.

Contact us on (02) 9809 3854 for more information or to book an appointment.

 

Real Time Ultrasound

Do you have weak core muscles? Urinary incontinence? A constant cough?

If so, then you are releasing pressure onto the transversus abdominis and pelvic floor muscles, which reduces support for your spine.

The transversus abdominis muscle can only be visualised by real time ultrasound (RTUS).

West Ryde Physio, RTUS is one of the tools we use to help achieve muscle function. The ultrasound shows how your muscles react during exercise and movement. We can see the layers of muscle and fatty tissue and the size and timing of muscle contractions.

Then we can work out a plan to retrain the muscles through physiotherapy.

Types of conditions assisted by real time ultrasound

  • Lower back pain

  • Pre/post pregnancy

  • Poor bladder control (urge or stress incontinence)

  • Diastasis recti

  • Post abdominal/pelvic surgery

  • Prostate surgery
