Physical impairments that might be relatively easily addressed by rehabilitation interventions if detected early can become very difficult to treat and costly if they have progressed over weeks, months or years. It is important if you are worried about something (for example, something is painful or doesn't move well), you need to get a certified physiotherapists to assess you.
It doesn't matter how far down the track you are since your diagnosis, your certified physiotherapist is there to help and support you.
Private Health funds or Private Medical Insurance will normally refund the cost of post-operative physiotherapy depending on your cover.
The initial assessment session is for an hour and the follow up sessions can be 30 minutes or 60 minutes depending on your requirements.
The costs are the same as standard physiotherapy rates. Please contact your local PINC & STEEL Certified clinic to find out exact costs in your region.
Your local PINC & STEEL Physiotherapy clinic may also have Next Steps or Pilates classes available (approx $18 - $25) that you may be able to attend once you have been assessed and treated.
The PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation Foundation is a volunteer driven registered charity that is dedicated to fundraising for individuals to participate in our programs in Australia and we will have more funding available for individuals needing financial assistance to attend sessions shortly. If you are unable to participate in the program due to economic hardship, please email Pincandsteelaus@gmail.com to be put on a waiting list for extra funding.
