Our Approach to Physiotherapy
Our experienced team of physiotherapists are committed to continually developing their craft through ongoing research and learning to ensure their assessment, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation skills align with current medical and scientific research.
Our physiotherapists treat each patient as an individual. To understand your situation, circumstances, motivations and goals, we offer a 60-minute initial consultation and 30-minute follow-up sessions. This allows time for a thorough assessment, diagnosis and treatment, rehabilitation and take-home exercises.
Our clinic provides industry-leading equipment in our dedicated physiotherapy gym and pilates studio. These spaces are for performance analysis, sports-specific assessment, rehabilitative exercises, and classes.
We deliver a holistic approach to your care by addressing injury, pain, and other symptoms within the context of each presentation. We create a treatment and rehabilitation plan that caters for your goals and lifestyle.
