NDIS and Physiotherapy: Enhancing Your Journey to Optimal Health
Enhanced Physio is dedicated to offering top-tier care to National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) beneficiaries. We recognise the distinct challenges faced by NDIS participants and provide specialised NDIS physiotherapy services in Brisbane & the Gold Coast to enhance their quality of life. Our services encompass speech therapy, personal care assistance, mobility improvement, pain management, community engagement support, and interpersonal skills training.
During your initial appointment, we review your NDIS Plan, delve into your disability, lifestyle, and objectives, and conduct a thorough assessment of your physical condition. This evaluation covers muscle strength, joint mobility, balance, and endurance, with recommendations for mobility aids if necessary. We also seek your consent to collaborate with other healthcare professionals on your treatment team, ensuring a positive and productive healthcare partnership.
How Physiotherapy Can Help NDIS Clients:
Physiotherapy is essential for supporting NDIS participants dealing with various physical challenges. Our experienced physiotherapists excel in diagnosing and treating conditions like musculoskeletal disorders, neurological issues, and mobility limitations. Personalised treatment plans are designed to enhance functionality, promote independence, and elevate overall quality of life.
Services include assistive device assessment, gait training, and pain management techniques tailored to individual needs. Physiotherapy is beneficial for a wide range of conditions, including physical disabilities, intellectual and psychosocial disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI's), and neurological injuries. Our NDIS massage services and specialised treatments target movement, balance, and overall physical function, ensuring comprehensive care.

Our team specialises in chronic pain management, using techniques like manual therapy, massage therapy, personalised exercise plans, and water-based therapy to improve function and well-being.
NDIS and Dietetics: Enhancing Your Health with Proper Nutrition
Enhanced Physio boasts an experienced team of NDIS dietitians in Brisbane and the Gold Coast committed to providing exceptional nutritional care for NDIS participants. Recognising the pivotal role nutrition plays in overall health, we offer personalised nutrition plans to address specific needs and goals.
Our services encompass meal planning, educating caregivers, managing dietary restrictions and allergies, nutrition support (including supplements), weight management, and more. Notably, the use of supplements is advised under healthcare professional guidance due to potential interactions and side effects. Our dietitians play a vital role in NDIS participants' well-being, ensuring optimal nutrition and overall health on their journey.
NDIS and Dietetics: Supporting Other Medical Conditions
Our dietitians play a crucial role in managing specific comorbidities through tailored nutrition plans:
- Diabetes Management: Our dietitians create personalised meal plans to stabilise blood sugar levels, manage insulin needs, and prevent complications in individuals with diabetes.
- Cardiovascular Health: Diet is vital for addressing conditions like high blood pressure and heart disease. Our dietitians help make heart-healthy choices, reduce sodium and saturated fat intake, promote balanced diets, and manage weight.
- Gastrointestinal Disorders: Our dietitians design nutrition plans to alleviate gastrointestinal issues (e.g., constipation, diarrhea) in people with disabilities, promoting gut health and nutrient absorption.
- Nutritional Deficiencies: Disabilities may hinder proper nutrition, leading to deficiencies. Our dietitians identify and address these through dietary adjustments and, if needed, recommend supplements.
- Weight Management: Our dietitians provide guidance for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, enhancing overall well-being, mobility, and quality of life for individuals with disabilities.
NDIS and Dietetics: Impact with Poor Nutrition and Disabilities
Inadequate nutrition can significantly affect individuals with disabilities, impacting their overall well-being in several ways:
- Reduced Energy Levels: Poor nutrition can lead to low energy levels, hindering daily activities and participation in therapy or rehab.
- Compromised Immune Function: Proper nutrition is vital for a robust immune system; poor nutrition weakens it, increasing infection risk.
- Impaired Wound Healing: Nutritional deficiencies slow wound healing, increasing susceptibility to pressure ulcers and delayed healing.
- Muscle Weakness: Inadequate protein and nutrient intake contribute to muscle weakness, affecting mobility and balance.
- Chronic Conditions: Poor nutrition raises the risk of chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular issues, and osteoporosis.
