Our aim is to provide quality evidence-based Physiotherapy using the latest hands-on treatment techniques and sports medicine guidelines. You’ll have a full half  hour of one on one time with your Physio and never be left alone while they work on another patient.

Your Physiotherapist is highly trained to assess and treat pain and dysfunction of the musculo-skeletal system, including common conditions such as:

  • Lower back pain
  • Traumatic and acute injuries
  • Postural and traumatic neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Headaches
  • Rehabilitation following orthopaedic surgery, Eg: ACL reconstruction, rotator cuff repair, ankle fractures.
  • Vertigo and dizziness**
  • Muscular spasm
  • Congenital and developmental back problems
  • Joint sprains
  • Muscle tears and strains
  • Runner’s biomechanics and lower limb pain
  • Cycling biomechanics and repetitive strain issues
  • Overuse injuries
  • Biomechanical foot injuries

** If booking for vertigo initial consultation please mention this to reception staff when making your appointment.

Our particular area of expertise is lower limb biomechanics and, more specifically, foot mechanics. With a particular interest  in the diagnosis and treatment of running injuries and foot biomechanics, having treated hundreds of elite endurance runners, sprinters, triathletes and social runners over many years. If you are experiencing foot or leg pain when running, let us help you get back to your best and achieve your goals

Both Alana and Neill have developed an innovative technique for treating suboccipital (base of the skull) and tension-induced headaches. Both are skilled in Atlas re-alignment techniques which are extremely effective for treatment of this type of head and neck pain. If you are struggling with persistent headaches and neck pain, try this approach and see for yourself.

Private Health Cover:
On the spot Health Insurance Claims are available using the Hicaps system. Includes all major and most minor health funds (for participating health funds click here). Typically your private health insurer will pay between half and two thirds of the treatment cost, depending on your level of cover. Please bring your private health card with you. We also accept payment using cash, Visa, Mastercard and EFTPOS.
BUPA and HCF customers:

Additionally, we are affiliated with multiple major Private Health Funds to provide rewarding services to members:

BUPA‘s Member’s First program allows BUPA members to enjoy a lower than usual treatment rate, as well as higher on-the-spot HICAPS claims to limit your out-of-pocket expenses.

HCF members, we have recently become an approved provider for the HCF “More for Muscles” program which provides higher level rebates for HCF members. The initial consultation is 100% covered by HCF in your case – no excuses not to come and have that dodgy knee looked at now!

Workcover and TAC:
Compensable injuries such as Workcover and TAC claims are commonly treated. Due to the inability of WorkSafe and the TAC to pay market rates for Physiotherapy treatments, our policy is to charge the client our normal rates, the cost of the treatment can then be claimed back via the insurer. You will usually receive most of the cost back, however there will be a small “gap” depending on your insurer’s policies. You must have lodged a claim already to access Physiotherapy services.
Medicare EPC:
In certain cases, you may be eligible for treatment under the EPC program (Enhanced Primary Care). This enables up to five Medicare-funded sessions each calendar year, with no out-of-pocket expenses. You will need to contact your GP to find out if you are eligible for this program. Generally, you will qualify for this program if you have a chronic medical condition that is being managed by your GP, and requires Physiotherapy treatment. Consult your GP for further information.
