What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing individualised support for people with disability, their families and carers. The NDIS is insurance, which gives peace of mind. Disability can affect anyone and having the right support makes a big difference.
Sports & Spinal Physiotherapy is a registered NDIS provider offering both Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology, Occupation Therapy, Podiatry and Hydrotherapy/Aquatic Physiotherapy.

We can assist you if you’re just starting your NDIS journey. There are multiple factors to consider when applying for NDIS. Fortunately, you don’t have to do this alone, and our team of health professionals are available to help make your journey as simple as possible!

In order to access allied health at Sports & Spinal under the NDIS, follow the next three steps:

1. Follow the NDIS checklist for eligibility. Click > here
2. Contact the NDIS on 1800 800 110 and an NDIS representative will assist you with your questions.
3. Once your application is approved you will then work with a Local Area Coordinator or Planner to lay out your needs and goals. They will also assist you in allocating your funding to the necessary services.

If you are already approved by NDIS, contact your local Sports & Spinal and book an initial appointment. Upon the initial contact please notify us that you are NDIS approved and your NDIS registration number and how your fund is being managed. Please make sure you notify us that you are NDIS approved, provide us with your name, your NDIS registration number and how your fund is being managed.
