comprehensive PHYSIO treatment
that suits your needs

WE TREAT thE WHOLE INDIVIDUAL

WE believe that prevention
IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE CURE

ABOUT

“WE TREAT THE WHOLE INDIVIDUAL”

Every individual is different so we seek to understand:
  • The Physical You –

    your sport, exercise, genetic make-up, posture and any existing injuries

  • The Personal You –

    your approach to your health and emotional wellbeing, which can influence your overall health

  • The Emotional You –

    the requirements of your job, the demands of family and other commitments that affect your physical wellbeing

This is the biopsychosocial model, an approach David Adams has been following throughout his 25 years of private practice.

But we’re in this together – We believe prevention is just as important as cure, and encourage you to take an active part in your recovery. David will show you how to manage your injury to avoid further damage and to prevent pain.

Need a last minute Christmas gift?

Got someone who is just too hard to buy for? Over the whole shopping thing? We’ve got you covered!

Give the gift of health, without having to leave the house!

Perhaps you know someone who may like to give Clinical Pilates a try? Just one session can help to show them how to set themselves up for exercise using core strength therefore, avoiding injury.

Or a Physio appointment to finally get that neck/back/knee…..sorted!

Then there is also the full holistic experience with Acupuncture. Relax draped in warm towels with a lavender eye pillow and gentle music during treatment. The results can be amazing!

Therapeutic massage anyone?

If you would like us to organise a personalised gift voucher for you, just get in touch. We can either prepare the voucher for you to pick up, or email the voucher to you or directly to the recipient.

No more traipsing around the shops hoping the perfect gift will materialise for that “hard to buy for” person. An appointment here is worth it’s weight in gold. Of course, there’s

always socks…..😵

Rudolph’s got a bad back!

Very happy to let you all know that another physio has joined our elite team.

Our appointment book is always full with a wait list to match so it was time to find another practitioner with the skills and approach to care, that would fit with our treatment philosophy.

The very personable and rather clever Chris Mannix is the perfect fit. He is highly professional with a positive, friendly personality. He has a hands on approach that is the best way to get the results our patients have always enjoyed.

We are thrilled that Chris has joined us and very happy to see that he has already been happily embraced by our patients. In no time at all, Chris’s books are also being filled.

Luckily, he will be increasing his sessions in the New Year to accomodate a fast growing patient load.

Chris has a particular interest in sporting injuries and has spent some time working with football clubs.

His dream would probably be to work alongside his beloved Hawks but we are holding on tight to him for now!

Chris has a great working relationship with his patients and is a skilled educator. We don’t know if he’s noticed….. but he’s great with kids too!

If you think Chris may well be the perfect fit for you as well, just click on the “make a booking” tab and book an appointment with him……it’s that easy!

Better hurry though – he’s busy!

 

Elite physios
Dream Team

I am currently treating this lovely young man for back issues and used boxing to teach him how to turn on his core and glutes whilst performing a whole body exercise.

His mum was in the room and said, “People should see this! They should know how broad your treatment is. This is what makes you different to the others!”

So…..here it is people.

Physiotherapy is so much more than just massage and manipulation. There are so many treatment approaches for a myriad of issues.
Each person is an individual. We all respond in our own individual way to different forms of treatment both physically and mentally. From acupuncture all the way to a boxing stance!
This is why, after 30 plus years, I still love what I do.
Thanks to the mum who noticed that!

    Will I need a referral?

    No referral is necessary to see a physio.

    When can I come?

    The clinic is open Tuesday – Saturday with after hours appointments available. You can be treated at a time that suits you.

    What should I bring?

    Bring any previous investigations, X-ray results and correspondence from treating practitioners.

    What should I wear?

    Wear loose, comfortable clothing, or bring a pair of shorts to change into. Every effort is made to treat you while you are clothed, or appropriately draped with a towel, to maintain your dignity.

    What can I expect at the first appointment?

    We will discuss the nature and cause of the issue or injury and how it affects or restricts your daily living.

    I will assess joint movement, muscle strength and overall tone of the soft tissue. We will discuss treatment goals, expectations and time frames.

    How long are appointments?

    Initial appointment: 30 minutes
    Please arrive 5 minutes early to complete the registration form or fill it out online within the Make a Booking page.

    Subsequent appointment: 30 minutes  |  Acupuncture appointment: 30–45 minutes  |  Clinical Pilates appointment: 30–45 minutes

    How many treatments will I need?

    The number of treatments will depend on the nature and severity of the issue or injury and how long you have had it.

    Some issues or injuries, such as an acute muscle strain, can be treated in one or two appointments. Some issues or injuries, such as chronic tendonitis, can take up to 12 treatments to resolve. We will discuss how many treatments you may need at the first appointment and reassess your progress during subsequent treatments.

    Can physios provide referrals for X-rays and investigations?

    Yes, we can refer for X-rays and a limited number of other investigations.

    Can I use my Medicare Enhanced Primary Care scheme?

    Yes.
