About Alpha Physio
– Scott Hewett - OwnerPhysiotherapy is more than just providing a few treatments and hoping for the best to me – my commitment to full and holistic treatment often results in huge improvements in mobility and pain for my clients. Seeing clients smiling when they leave the practice is why I do what I do.
Welcome to Alpha Physio
Alpha Physio was founded in 1988 as Sumner Physiotherapy and was the first physiotherapy centre in the Centenary suburbs. Scott Hewett has owned and operated the clinic since 1996.
The move into new rooms within the Jamboree Centre in 2013 has allowed the practice to expand and now include a massage therapist, as well as physiotherapist Simon. The lovely Debbie has recently joined the team as the new Practice Manager.

If your condition isn’t listed or you have any questions not listed here, please call us.
Please note that on a needs basis we will review our fees to meet exceptional circumstances.
Workers compensation patients will be billed to their insurer. Referrals, a claim number, and case manager details need to be provided as soon as possible, as this will allow us to also have input into your treatment to ensure the best outcome.
DVA patients may require a current doctor’s referral, and will be billed to DVA directly.
CTP claims (motor vehicle accidents) require a doctors referral and contact with the at-fault driver’s Registration CTP insurer. A treatment plan may then be provided.
EPC (Enhanced Primary Care) Patients must have a current referral from their doctor. We are able to claim directly from Medicare at time of treatment however the patient will be required to pay the remainder of the fee. This amount will vary depending on the treating physiotherapist.
Private Patients do not need a doctor’s referral, however payment is requested at the time of the visit. We are able to take payment directly through HICAPS from your private heath fund and EFTPOS facilities are also available.
Private Migraine patients do not require a referral and will receive treatment from Scott or Simon who have both received specialised training from the Watson Headache institute on treating the cause of migraine pain.
Scott is also on the Physiotherapy Business Australia committee, a subgroup of the APA.
