Clinical & Rehabilitation 

Physio

Ivanhoe only

A range of private health cover rebates are available subsidising private one-on-one consultations as well as small group classes. Remember, you don’t need a referral to see your Physiotherapist!

Our senior Physiotherapist Michael Rafla has been helping the wider community several years with a variety of solutions including

  • Pain and injury solutions

  • Chronic pain rehabilitation

  • Post surgical rehabilitation

  • Acute and Chronic joint pain

  • Return to work, sport and life

  • Guided and group clinical Pilates

How does it work?

Our assessment session is your chance to talk and or chance to listen. After a thorough history is taken, our physiotherapist will confirm the diagnosis with some clinical tests following which a detailed rehabilitation plan will be written out for you to take away. The treatment usually begins within the first session!

How does Clinical Pilates work?

Once the assessment session has taken place and a treatment plan has been outlined, a one-on-one clinical Pilates session takes place  on our state of the art Pilates Reformers familiarising you with the equipment, exercises and techniques. Depending on your individual level and needs a specialised program will be tailored to suit your needs and availability. Moreover, we also provide small group classes of 2-6 where the Physio can supervise you through your program when you have established some of the basic skills.
