After seeking the clarification and advice of several peak bodies, we are pleased to advise that –
My Physio GESAC and Brighton are open for essential treatment
Under the current lockdown, Physiotherapy services can now be delivered face-to-face for essential clinical care, where Telehealth is not deemed appropriate. (You can find a clear explanation of essential care below).
Our staff will assist you in determining whether your treatment needs are considered essential.
If your care is deemed essential, then you can be reassured we stand ready to provide ongoing expert care for you (face-to-face).
You are permitted to leave home (and travel beyond 5km if necessary) to seek essential clinical care.
Beyond essential care, we are determined to continue your treatment as seamlessly as possible and can address any of your needs via a Telehealth consultation in the safety and convenience of your home. Telehealth consultations are available for Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology, and Dietetics.
Health rebates still apply for these services, as do rebates under a Medicare EPC plan.
All hydrotherapy services have been suspended due to pool closure. All Reformer classes have been paused until the current lockdown ends.
We intend to resume all on-site services, Clinical Reformer classes, and Hydrotherapy services from Friday 4th June.
To discuss your needs please don’t hesitate to call us on:

Stay safe and continue to care for yourself and those around you!

For your clarification, the government has defined essential clinical care as:
- to prevent a significant change/deterioration in functional independence which would result in an escalation of care needs
- to provide assessment and diagnostic services to clients/patients whose care has been delayed as a result of previous restrictions, with any further delay likely to result in deterioration in functional independence or adverse health outcomes (including access to diagnostic imaging services)
- to provide services that are essential as part of a broader plan of care with a medical practitioner
- to provide services that are part of a conservative management plan to avoid or delay elective surgery
- to provide services immediately following elective surgery that prevents secondary complications or aids functional recovery
