MS Physiotherapy

Improve your strength and movement with Physiotherapy

 

If MS or another neurological condition is affecting your strength and movement - you're not alone. Up to 80% of people living with MS have difficulty with physical activity.

Physio can keep you moving and prevent your symptoms from getting worse over time.

Whether you want to reduce falls, improve your balance or simply move more – our MS Physiotherapy service can help.

How Physiotherapy works

 

Once you are matched to one of our Physios, your first appointment can take place over the phone, via video call, or face-to-face.

We'll work with you to understand your goals and anything that might be standing in the way of you achieving them. We’ll discuss how physiotherapy could help. This might include a combination of exercises, equipment, and management strategies, or referring you to other specialists who can help.

You will come away from your first appointment with a treatment plan and a list of recommendations to improve your mobility, strength and physical wellbeing. We’ll also be there to continually support you to implement your plan and reach your goals.

How to access Physiotherapy

 

Physio can be funded by your NDIS plan, or you have the option to pay privately and receive a rebate from either Medicare or your private health insurer. We can help you work out the best way to pay for this service.

Depending on where you live, we can visit you in your home, see you at an MS office or you can access this service via Telehealth.

We have Physios based in Victoria and New South Wales, who can also provide physio via Telehealth in the ACT and Tasmania.

To get started, contact MS Connect on 1800 042 138 or msconnect@ms.org.au

How Physiotherapy can help you live well with MS

 

Our MS Physios have a deep understanding of MS and other neurological conditions. We understand your limits but can help you safely push your boundaries. We're here to help you find that happy balance.

This could be:

  • marching exercises to help strengthen your legs, improve your balance and increase fitness
  • funding a device that goes in your shoe to help prevent you from tripping over
  • breathing exercises to help manage mood, pain, fatigue and even fitness
  • modifying exercises to help you manage fatigue for the rest of your day so you can continue doing the things you love.

Our specialist knowledge is all based on current evidence and advice, specific to neurological conditions - it's more than a general trainer's knowledge.

The challenges Physiotherapy can help you address

 
  • Managing symptoms like fatigue, stiffness, weakness, heat sensitivity and pain
  • Difficulty with balance and mobility
  • Struggling to transfer
  • Exercising at the right level for you
