Whether you’re a weekend warrior, an elite athlete or just trying to keep up with the kids, being injured is not only painful but it almost always stops you from doing what you love.
Our physios are all highly trained in injury assessment and management. During your initial appointment our physios will take a thorough history of your injury and any other relevant information. They will discuss with you what your goals are and sit down with you to make a plan on how to reach them. Treatment will commence during your first appointment.
