Physiotherapy – Where Science and Art  Meet

  • Physiotherapy is a professional, highly  credible and natural medical treatment option offered to all Australians to  improve quality of life. The primary focus of physiotherapy is the restoration  of function.
  • Physiotherapists assess and diagnose the problem, then plan and  administer treatment programs that aim to restore function or minimise  dysfunction after disease or injury.
  • Physiotherapists strive to improve an  individual’s quality of life by physical means. A combination of manual  therapy, movement training and physical and electrophysical agents are used to  achieve this. Adequate education provided to Australians will lead to the  prevention of many physical problems and this is a priority area for  physiotherapists.

Your Physiotherapist

Australian physiotherapists are registered  health care professionals with university qualifications. Kenneth, our  physiotherapist, completed his studies at the highly regarded University of  Sydney.

Physiotherapists assess, diagnose and treat  people with movement problems. Physiotherapists also help people avoid injuries  and maintain a fit, healthy body. Physiotherapy includes a wide range of  specialties that meet the health needs of different people such as babies and  children, sports people, pregnant women, injured workers and senior citizens.

All physiotherapists registered to practise  in Australia are qualified to provide safe, effective health care. Kenneth is a  member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) and makes an extra  commitment to quality health care. He is also a member of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Australia and Sports Physiotherapy Australia. APA physiotherapists are required to  undertake continuing professional development programs to keep themselves up to  date and to abide by a Code of Conduct which sets out expected standards of  professional conduct.
