Our friendly reception staff or Physio staff will be there to greet you on arriving at our Bend + Mend clinic. We will ask you to fill in a New Patient details form and then take you through to one of our private treatment rooms. We recognise that people in the city are busy, so we aim to be on time for all our appointments so you do not have to wait.
After discussing your problem/s with your Physiotherapist they may ask you to change into our shorts or gowns to fully assess your injury or pain (you are also welcome to bring your own change of clothes if you prefer). The Physio will then usually get you to perform some movements and carry out some tests to help diagnose your injury.
The first consultation will also include a treatment to get you started straight away on the path to recovery. This is often in the form of hands-on treatment and you may also be instructed in some exercises to carry out at home.
Do I need a referral?
No, you can book in and come directly to see a Physiotherapist without a Doctor’s referral.
What do I need to wear or bring?
For Physiotherapy appointments, we have gowns and shorts available for you to change into, but feel free to bring your own exercise clothes if you prefer.
Please bring along any doctor’s referral letters, scan or x-ray results you have, and your private health insurance card so you can claim for your treatment on the spot.
How long is each appointment?
Your initial Physiotherapy appointment will be 30-45 minutes and follow-ups are 30 minutes.
The cost of a Physiotherapy consultation at Bend + Mend is:
Initial Physiotherapy Consultation $130 (30-45 min)
Follow-up Physiotherapy Consultation $112 (30 min)
Payment details offered
We accept cash, cheque, EFTPOS, VISA, MasterCard and American Express. We also have HICAPS, so if you bring your private health fund card we can process your rebate on the spot and you will only need to pay the remainder of the fee.
