After an initial consultation, your physiotherapist will work with you to create a personalised treatment plan and will make suggestions to help prevent your problem from recurring.
Do I need a referral?
You will not require a referral. If you have been given a referral by your doctor please bring this with you to your initial visit.
Workcover or TAC Claims
We treat Workcover and motor vehicle accident injuries covered by the TAC. If you are claiming through Workcover, you will need to have your injury certified by a doctor before you can claim treatment costs for physiotherapy. Please bring your claim number and workplace details to the first appointment. TAC clients should also bring your claim number to the first appointment. If you require further information about your eligibility to claim for your treatment, please call our friendly receptionists who will be able to assist you.
Can I claim physio on my private health fund?
Depending on your level of cover, you may receive a rebate from your health fund. We can help you access your rebate with our electronic rebate facility when you settle the account.

Neck & Back Pain
Muscle & Joint Pain
Muscle and joint pain is a common condition we treat at Golden City Physiotherapy. Our Physiotherapists will asses the injury to determine the best plan for treatment, which could include massage, ultrasound, dry needling and/or exercise prescription. We aim to speed up your recovery time, stabilise and support the injury, provide pain relief and reduce injury recurrence.
Our goal is to help you be your very best. So whether you’re a professional athlete or just trying to live a pain free life, we will prescribe you a personalised exercise and stretching program to suit your needs. Our team of physio’s follow this same strategy when faced with an injury, enabling them all to lead very active lifestyles.
Workplace & Pre-Employment Assessments
We are experienced in worksite assessment and can advise on suitable return to work programs which can lead to a more rapid recovery of your injured workers. We are always happy to talk to employers about a worker’s progress towards return to work.
We can advise on the use of foot orthotics and their benefits in helping settle other injuries. We also have “over the counter” foot orthotics available, which may help to determine the benefits of fully custom made orthotics.
We are able to teach you protective strapping for any recovering injuries. We can advise on the most appropriate tape to use and we also have tape available for sale.
Correct posture can be a valuable factor for improving painful conditions and preventing injury. We can advise on correct posture, particularly when setting up a workspace, and we can provide exercises to help maintain correct posture.
Aids & Appliances
We can measure you and advise on the suitability of most aids and appliances. We have a large selection of lumbar rolls, pillows and ankle braces available, and those items not kept in stock can be ordered and will usually arrive within two to three days.
Pregnancy related back pain
Repetitive strain related injuries
RSI or repetitive strain injuries can be treated successfully, particularly when treated in its early stages, so it’s vital that you get treatment early and that you pro-actively manage this condition.
Temperomandibular joint (Jaw) problems
We are happy to talk to sporting groups and clubs on Physiotherapy related topics such as prevention and treatment of sports injuries, low back pain and stretching techniques.
If we feel you need other treatment other than physiotherapy, we will have no hesitation in referring you to the most suitable person.
