Physical goods may be delivered by Australia Post and/or other reputable courier companies. Deliveries are processed promptly upon receipt of full payment. Delivery typically takes between 2 and 14 days for shipments within Australia, depending on the delivery option. Damaged or lost orders should be resolved with Australia Post or the courier company directly and we are not responsible for goods that are damaged in transit or not received. Replacement of damaged or lost items is made at the discretion of Ben Ward Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.
Overseas shipments may take longer than 14 days. Any duties, taxes or other costs incurred during import are the sole responsibility of the buyer.
In the event that an item is lost or damaged in the course of delivery, we ask that you:
- Contact the Delivery Service Provider directly to request a refund or to claim on any insurance options available; and
- Contact us using the contact form on this website outlining in what way the Products were damaged in transit so we are able to determine if the Delivery Service Provider should be removed from the Purchase Services.
Returns, Exchanges and Refunds
We handle returns, exchanges and refunds in accordance with the Australian Consumer Protection legislation. If an item you purchased does not meet Consumer Guarantees under this legislation then please notify us of your wish to seek a remedy. You may choose or we may offer, depending on the nature of the problem, an appropriate remedy such as repair, replacement or refund (see here for information on remedies to meet guarantee standards).
Bookings and Consultation Fees
Appointments may be made online via HealthKit or by contacting us directly (online bookings are preferred).
Payment in full is required at the end of each consultation unless a prior agreement has been made. If a third party is to be responsible for payment (e.g. an insurer) then written confirmation of this and any applicable documentation such as medical referrals must be provided in advance. Until such documentation is received by us you agree to pay all fees.
Our current fee schedule is available here.

- 50% of the consultation fee
Notice must be given by 5pm the day prior for morning appointments, or 7am the morning of for afternoon/evening appointments.
Failure to attend without notice
- 100% of the consultation fee
