If you weren’t already aware, the NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme and was introduced in 2013.
It was a scheme brought about to provide better support to those suffering with a disability and chronic conditions to give them a new, whole-life funding model to ensure their adequate access to mainstream services.
An extract from the official NDIS website explains: “The NDIS can pay for supports that are reasonable and necessary. This means they are related to a person’s disability and are required for them to live an ordinary life and achieve their goals.”
So, in other words, this revolutionary insurance scheme allows those who need it most, the access to the services they need to live their best life. And of course, physiotherapy (and other services) are a powerful tool in treating, managing and progressing people through a multitude of chronic health conditions and disabilities.
Here at Progressive Sports & Spinal Physiotherapy, we are proud to be a local accredited NDIS provider within the wider Nepean, Blue Mountains & Hawkesbury region. We ensure our local patients on the NDIS scheme are accommodated locally and are able to receive the treatment they deserve in the convenience of their local community.
