Frequently Asked Questions

Where do our Physiotherapists see clients?

At home, work, the gym, pool, or wherever they are trying to function better.

How far will our Physiotherapists travel to see clients?

Normally anywhere within a 25 km radius of the Melbourne CBD; however, our therapists will travel further by arrangement.

Why have Physiotherapy  at home, work etc?

Providing rehabilitation in a location where the client wants to function better, eg at home or at work , is often the most appropriate and effective setting for rehabilitation to occur.

Not only that, providing rehabilitation in a client's own environment ensures they are comfortable, creating the optimal setting for therapy and education.

For some clients travel to a clinic is difficult and we do not want travel to be the reason clients don't receive  appropriate services.

MHRN can provide you with Physiotherapy if you are supported by the NDIS and you are self-managed or plan-managed, but not if you are NDIA-managed.



Can MHRN or Anthony Hotchin see me if I am supported by a Home Care Package ?

Yes we can - Depending on your package level and the other supports you receive, we can discuss with you and your case manager whether the package has sufficient funds to cover Physiotherapy and if so, organise a service agreement between us and your HCP. If there aren't enough funds, we can talk to you about seeing us privately.
