What is Physiotherapy?
In simple terms, Physiotherapy is a discipline of health professionals who are skilled in understanding movement and function of the human body. We are qualified to assess, diagnose and treat you when you are experiencing pain or not moving optimally.
Our goal is to help you regain pain-free movement and maximize your health and vitality. We understand that you have your own unique set of goals for your well-being and we will design a program that best addresses and works with your goals in mind. We endorse the motto of the Australian Physiotherapy Association which is – Move Well, Stay Well.
