What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme supports Australians with a significant and permanent disability with funding for supports and services. 

Those supports and services vary from one person to another, but they could include things like:

  • Help with daily personal activities
  • Transport to enable you to get to clubs, social events, healthcare appointments, work, school or anywhere else you need to go
  • Helping you to get or keep employment
  • Therapeutic supports like physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy
  • Help with household tasks to enable you to live at home
  • Home modification design and construction
  • Mobility equipment 
  • Vehicle modifications.

The NDIS takes a lifetime approach, aiming to invest in people with disabilities so you can engage in education, work or your community.

If your NDIS application is approved, then the NDIS works with you to develop your Plan. This is where you set some goals for the next year then work out what funding and services you need to achieve them. 

Once you’ve got your NDIS Plan, you can choose your providers. The NDIS leaves that choice to you because you’re the one using those services and it’s important that you like the people who are supporting you.

NDIS exercise physiology

Do your NDIS goals include getting stronger and fitter or moving more freely to increase your independence? 

Then exercise physiology can help. If your disability reduces your health and wellbeing or limits your movements, then exercise physiology can be a valuable part of your NDIS Plan.

Exercise physiology helps you enjoy the physical and mental benefits of exercise using a customised program that meets your needs. 

Accessing exercise physiology using your NDIS Plan can help to:

  • Improve your wellbeing, self-esteem and mental health thanks to all the feel-good endorphins that are released during exercise
  • Help you manage your condition
  • Improve your mobility and function
  • Reduce pain
  • Increase your independence.

FAQs

How do I know if I’m eligible for the NDIS?

You can check your eligibility here

You have to be aged 7-65, have Australian residency and live in Australia, need care or special equipment because of a significant or permanent disability and need some supports now to reduce your future needs. 

How do I know if physiotherapy or exercise physiology will help me?

In general terms, if you have any kind of physical or neurological disability, then physiotherapy or exercise physiology may help. If you’re unsure, why not come along for an initial consultation. We can talk about your goals, assess your needs and recommend a treatment plan. Then you can decide if that sounds good to you. 

What’s Physionorth like?

We focus on the whole person, looking at how your whole body works rather than concentrating only on the sore parts. When we’re with you, you have our full attention. Depending on your needs, we may perform hands-on treatments to release overactive muscles, loosen up joints, retrain weak muscles and teach you how to improve your posture and move with symmetry.
