101 Physio has been providing a comprehensive physiotherapy service at The Elms since January 2013, and is available on Tuesday afternoons.
Mr Chong Yao, physiotherapist, treats all general musculoskeletal conditions such as acute injuries, chronic pain, tension headaches and post-operative rehabilitation. He employs a variety of techniques including dry needling, massage, muscle strengthening and balancing, stretching, posture training and creating exercise programs.
101 Physio is an accredited provider of services for claims covered by Work Cover and the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), and is a registered member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
Chong may be consulted privately (no Medicare rebate although a rebate may apply if you have appropriate private health insurance) or through your doctor via a Team Care Arrangement (TCA) as part of a General Practice Management Plan (GPMP) for patients with qualifying chronic complex medical conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Please discuss with your doctor regarding whether you are eligible for Medicare-rebated physiotherapy services.
