OUR APPROACH

Prevent

An important part of our work together is to educate you about your condition so you are able to prevent or catch the onset of future issues. We provide tailored exercise programs with a focus on recovery and prevention by helping you to improve strength and move safely and correctly.

What is a Specialist Physiotherapist?

Specialisation is awarded by the Australian College of Physiotherapists, the pre-eminent professional body representing specialist physiotherapists in Australasia. It is given to those who have achieved the highest clinical qualifications in their particular field of physiotherapy.

Specialist physios undergo a rigorous advanced training and examination process, with only the most skilled clinicians being given the title of Specialist. To complete the program, physiotherapists need to have post-graduate qualifications, have worked clinically for a number of years and demonstrate that they have been involved in education and research.

We were among the first Specialist Physiotherapists in Australia, and are now examiners for the College of Physiotherapists, assessing other physiotherapists in the exam process.

Once you have been awarded specialisation, you are known as a Fellow of the Australian College of Physiotherapists.

SPECIALIST EQUIPMENT

We use ultrasound imaging which lets us see, in real-time, how the deep supporting muscles of your lower back and abdomen are working.

You can see your muscles working live, in action, on screen, providing feedback to help you get the best muscle activation. 

This lets us develop targeted rehabilitation programs to improve your muscle function.
