Manipulative Physiotherapy

Manipulative physiotherapy is the term used to describe the field of physiotherapy practice which relates to disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Physiotherapists who practice in this area are skilled in the assessment, diagnosis and physiotherapy management of musculoskeletal conditions.
Practitioners of manipulative Physiotherapy will use specialised assessment skills to diagnose the problem and perform effective treatment usually combining joint manipulation or mobilisation as well as exercise and advice.
Manipulative Physiotherapy is completed as part of post graduate training, and offers an extra form of care, particularly if a patient is struggling to recover with standard treatment.

ACC

ACC MAY DECLINE YOUR CLAIM!  If this is the case you are liable for all fees in accordance with the schedule above. If your injury is the result of an accident and accepted by ACC then a surcharge fee of $40 will be required with each visit to help cover the full cost of your treatment. There may be an additional charge for materials e.g. strapping, acupuncture needles.

If your application for treatment is declined by ACC, we will invoice you for the treatment at our private fee rate.
