Due to the coronavirus, self-isolation is a fact of life for many Australians right now.
At The Physio Co we worry that older people are at risk of health problems and complications if they stop excercise and being active.
Self-isolation or reduced planned activities does not mean that your elderly Mum or Dad needs to feel isolated nor stop being active. Our online physio support and exercise programs help both mentally and physically
The Physio Co's caring physiotherapists for elderly people can answer your questions, provide practical advice and help with a personalised exercise program wherever you, your Mum or Dad lives - all done virtually via the phone or internet!
If you have an eligible referral from your GP for therapy sessions funded via Medicare or DVA you can access these services with no out of pocket expense. Check out the details below

Here’s the story of our client, Jennifer, who, with the help of her daughter and a TPC physio, improved her balance, confidence and walking with online physio consultations…
Jennifer’s online physio experience
Physio consultations over the internet are more about helping you get the advice and support you need (and less about hands-on treatment – that happens when we see each other in-person).
We’re excited about helping you and/or someone you care for!
**If you’d like, we can share your goal plan with your family and/or doctor so we all work together on helping you smash your goals
Yes, your sessions are completely private and confidential. The video and audio communication is only visible to your physio and yourself. All notes taken during your consult are stored in a secure practice management system that meets government privacy requirements.
You will still need to register a valid payment method with The Physio Co, however, you will only be debited if we are i) unable to claim via Medicare/ DVA as intended and ii) we will notify you first.
Many elderly Australians are self-isolating due to the greater threat that the coronavirus presents to this segment of our population. Self-isolation often results in less activity and not doing any exercise. This can result in depression, isolation and increased anxiety and worry. Keeping active and doing regular exercise and the ongoing contact with the friendly support from The Physio Co helps our elderly parents mentally and also importantly exercise is belived to help the immune system.
