What types of therapy are covered by the NDIS?

As an NDIS participant, understanding the ins and outs of your plan is crucial to making the most of your benefits. It’s the difference between fully embracing the opportunities for growth and letting precious funds slip through your fingers unused. Today, I want to illuminate the path to your empowerment by diving into the therapies likely included in your NDIS coverage. With this knowledge, you’ll not only prevent wastage but also witness tangible enhancements in your day-to-day life, independence, and social interactions.

Let’s unravel the mystery of your NDIS plan together. Typically, around pages seven or eight, you’ll stumble upon a segment titled ‘Total Funded Support.’ It’s here that you’ll discover the therapies you’re entitled to. Now, let’s explore the three common therapies that your NDIS plan will most likely include.

1. Physiotherapy: Your Ally in Daily Living

First on the list is Physiotherapy. This therapy falls under the ‘Capacity Building for Improved Daily Living’ category. It’s worth checking your plan to confirm you have the allocation for it, as physiotherapy is a common inclusion that can significantly enhance your physical capabilities.

2. Exercise Physiology: Strengthening More Than Muscles

Next up is Exercise Physiology, which straddles two crucial domains. It’s not only a part of ‘Capacity Building for Improved Daily Living,’ but also plays a role in ‘Health and Wellbeing’. Exercise Physiology is designed to tailor a fitness regimen that aligns with your unique needs, fostering both physical and mental health improvements.

3. Podiatry: A Step Toward Better Mobility

Lastly, we have Podiatry. This therapy is multifaceted, fitting into several categories such as ‘Capacity Building for Improved Daily Living,’ ‘Therapeutic Supports,’ and even ‘Custom Prosthetics.’ If your NDIS plan includes these categories, you’re likely eligible for Podiatry services, which can be a game-changer for your mobility and overall foot health.
