At LifeLift, we’re committed to helping people with disability live as independently as possible and with dignity.
Our multidisciplinary allied health team is person-centred, friendly, caring and professional – and our physiotherapists embody these attributes as they assist NDIS participants to enhance their quality of life.
We are registered NDIS providers and our physiotherapy services can be delivered in the comfort of your home or workplace, ensuring they’re convenient and effective.
Physiotherapy is a gentle therapy focused on outcomes such as:
- reducing the impact of an injury
- managing disability
- managing pain
- improving body function / range of motion
- boosting physical strength
- preventing injuries / falls
- enhancing independent living
- post injury, illness or accident rehabilitation
- health education
- assistive technology and equipment prescribing
The aim of physiotherapy is to support NDIS participants to manage or rehabilitate their condition so they can stay fully engaged in a range of life activities.
At its core, it’s about helping people feel happier and healthier, and allowing them to be more active and more easily manage their everyday tasks.

What will my physiotherapist do?
LifeLift physios usually begin by carrying out a structured mobility assessment. This allows them to correctly gauge how impaired your movement or function might be and consider the best strategies for improving your mobility, functioning, balance and managing any pain you may be experiencing.
Following an assessment, physiotherapists make specialist recommendations about how to help support your disability.
A treatment plan is not limited to, but may include:
- manual therapies such as massage
- at-home exercise programs
- postural care
- health education
- ultrasound /laser therapy
- joint manipulation/mobilisation techniques
- breathing exercises
- acupuncture/dry needling
- pilates classes
- the use of mobility / assistive aids such as crutches, wheelchairs, handrails;
Your individual treatment plan will be based on your specific situation and needs.
LifeLift’s mobile physiotherapists are wonderful champions, supporting NDIS participants to implement and follow the programs designed for them.
Our phyzios also work with other health professionals and organisations (such as schools, employers, insurers etc), as required, to support a participants’ wellbeing.
A key part of a physiotherapist’s role is to chart a client’s progress in order to demonstrate the positive results the therapy is delivering.
