Department of Veteran Affairs

Australian veterans have often experienced more in their lifetimes than many can imagine, and with that comes significant strains on their physical and mental health, which can have reverberating impacts on their social interactions, emotional wellbeing, and their quality of life. Proactive’s strong team of allied health professionals help DVA members live fulfilling and active lives by optimising a variety of facets of their lives – from the way they move through daily life to how they see the world.

Experience Working With Veterans

Being highly experienced in working with veterans, we understand that the daily challenges faced are often complex and multifaceted, requiring a care approach that is thoughtful, inclusive of a veterans personal preferences, and is unique – unlike those cookie-cutter one-size-fits-all treatment methods that others may offer. Our close-knit team of practitioners come highly-regarded and recommended because of their ability to combine up-to-date and evidence-based treatment methods with genuine, supportive and personalised care, and add to this a fantastic working relationship with their DVA clients.
As with any plan, things may come up – and often do. You can be assured that your practitioners are not here to judge or tell you to simply stick to the plan, but instead to troubleshoot any challenges to make the plan work for you and your life. We are on your team and on this journey with you, and you can trust that your practitioners are also well-supported by the wider Proactive team to enable them to offer exceptional care for you.

Musculoskeletal conditions and injuries

The Proactive Difference

If you’ve been recommended to come and see us, then it’s likely because it has been recognised that we do things a little differently – well, a lot differently. The reason we are able to maintain such excellent care of DVA participants stems from the fact that the practitioners you work with are incredibly well supported in all facets of their career – from our incredible network and close-knit provider community, to the opportunities we offer for ongoing learning so your practitioners skills and knowledge are always growing – to the benefits we offer that help support your practitioners mental and physical health.
Because if they’re going to be taking exceptional care of you – we believe it’s our job to take exceptional care of them too.

FAQs

Yes, absolutely. You are always able to change providers to see someone who may be more aligned with your goals - or who you may want to switch to for any other reason. Simply book your appointment with us to get started.
In our experience, we’ve seen too many veterans get treated in the same cookie-cutter way as those that haven’t faced significant physical and mental strains that shape or at least influence their outlook and approach to life. For these veterans, they risk getting substandard treatment outcomes from working with someone that, while experienced generally, is not experienced in veteran care and finds it difficult to connect with and understand veterans. This is why we have such a strong focus on veterans - to ensure no one is left behind and see everyone receive exceptional, personalised care.
