Rehabilitation for Veterans and War Widows
Servicing the Veteran Community is our privilege
Exercise Physiology services are available to eligible Veterans and war widows.
These services include the delivery of clinical exercise interventions to manage chronic disease and the provision of post-acute exercise rehabilitation for individuals recovering from major injury or illness. At Exercise for Rehabilitation & Health, we have Exercise Physiologists that specialise in rehabilitation for older adults in the following areas:
- Post surgery
- Falls and balance
- Heart disease
- Chronic musculoskeletal injury
DVA Health Cards (Gold and White) are accepted as payment upon a GP referral
Before attending an appointment you will need to plan a visit to your General Practitioner to obtain a referral to see the Exercise Physiologist. The referral may either be on a D904 slip or on your doctors letterhead - be sure to advise your doctor to provide as much clinical information as possible on the referral so that we can help you best. After your initial assessment, your doctor will receive a report from your treating Exercise Physiologist outlining your goals and treatment plan.
For more information regarding eligibility and referral requirements please visit the DVA website or speak with your General Practitioner.
