The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), has been one of the largest changes to the Australian health care system over the last 35 years. The NDIS helps to provide approximately 460,000 Australians aged under 65, who have a permanent and significant disability, with funding for support and services. The aim of this system is to provide the means that those with disability require to achieve their goals and live an ordinary life.
To be eligible for the NDIS you should be:
Core Physiotherapy and Pilates Studio clinics across Adelaide are registered NDIS providers and our Physiotherapists are able to provide services to help participants of the NDIS reach their physical, functional and life goals.
Many clients require a hands on approach to treating and managing their specific complaints. At Core Physiotherapy & Pilates Studio we incorporate many techniques to provide our clients with solutions to their particular physical complaints, these include:
For many people who can’t exercise on land Hydrotherapy provides a method of rehabilitation with many benefits. Utilising the properties of water exercise programs in the pool can address a variety of aims from muscle strengthening or improving mobility/flexibility to gait re-education and enhancing balance.
Before starting a Hydrotherapy program clients are fully assessed in a consultation up to an hour and establishes a history of previous and current injuries and an assessment of posture, joint mobility, flexibility and muscle control. With information from the analysis and in collaboration with the client and their goals, we are able to identify all problem areas and create a goal-based Hydrotherapy exercise program.
Individual Hydrotherapy Sessions:
Individual hydrotherapy sessions are fully supervised by a Physiotherapist in the pool and aim to establish an exercise program that focuses on clients specific goals. For those who need the support of one on one supervision and attention they can continue with these sessions where the program gets harder as they progress. For clients who can become more involved in performing their program with less help they may want to progress to a Group Hydrotherapy class.
Group Hydrotherapy Sessions:
In Group Hydrotherapy classes clients perform their own individualised programs under the supervision of a Physiotherapist in the pool. Clients attend regularly where they practice their program and are progressed and challenged as they improve. This format brings the benefits of supervision while taking on responsibility for performing a program and the social dynamic of being in a group.
What to bring:
Our PhysioEx program uses Pilates and gym equipment, with spring resistance and pulleys that allow the body’s correct posture and movement patterns to be retrained. These movements can be customised to the individual, with emphasis
on achieving gains towards functional goals.
Benefits of PhysioEx include:
Before starting a PhysioEx program your goals are discussed, a history of previous and current injuries is taken. An assessment of posture, joint mobility, flexibility and muscle control is completed. This assists in identifying areas of weakness and if there are precautions to be considered in setting up a tailored program.
Individual Supervised Sessions
In individual PhysioEx sessions the treating Physiotherapist uses a range of Pilates and gym based equipment to develop a program that focuses on the clients goals and ability. Sessions can span 30 minutes to an hour depending on the confidence of the client and support required. For some clients one on one supervision is essential for them to perform their program effectively and safely, in these cases they may continue with individual session.
Group Exercise Session
For clients who need less supervision a group session could provide the perfect format for them to practice their exercises in an environment where they are still being supervised and are encouraged to take responsibility for their exercises and gains. These exercise sessions consist of small groups of up to 6 people under the constant supervision of a Physiotherapist.

We will begin by booking you in for a one hour initial assessment and in collaboration with you develop a plan for your ongoing care. All you need to bring with you to start is an idea of what health benefits you would like to achieve from your program.
