Xray/MRI/Ultrasound Referrals

At Active Care Physiotherapy, our practitioners can refer you for BULK BILLED X-rays as part of your care. We are also able to refer you for MRI and ultrasound scans to determine the cause or extent of your pain/injury. Unfortunately these scans do come at a cost but it does eliminate the need to see a GP which can be quite time consuming when a speedy recovery is needed.
