The NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme that aims to provide eligible people with permanent and significant disabilities to have more independence, enable them to spend time with family and friends, engage with the community, access new skills and overall improve the quality of their life.
Overall the NDIS aims to connect people with disabilities to services within the community. This includes doctors, support groups, other health professionals, sporting clubs, libraries and schools as some examples.
Generally, to qualify for the NDIS, participants must be under the age of 65 and have some medically diagnosed disability. It is an important service particularly for our younger populations and those with developmental delay, ensuring they receive the necessary supports early so that they can achieve the best outcomes throughout their lives.
At PowerBuild Physiotherapy, we appreciate and value our NDIS participants. Our NDIS-registered Physiotherapy service uses a range of treatment techniques and approaches to improve movement and function, treat and reduce pain or tightness, as well as making everyday tasks easier, enabling you to do the things you love most.
All our NDIS-registered Physiotherapists are fully qualified with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency. In the next article we will go into depth into what services and techniques our physiotherapists employ to improve the lives of our NDIS participants.
