Education

All of our physiotherapists are university trained and highly qualified with Physiotherapy degrees. The desire to learn has led our team to greater heights than most with Pete having completed a graduate certificate in education and a Masters degree; Jess has a Masters of Manual therapy degree and is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Council which assesses and accredits the University Physiotherapy programs across Australia; Nikki has also completed her Masters of Manual therapy degree; and Josh is constantly learning whilst studying medicine at The University of Newcastle and conducting research in sports injury prevention.

Research

We not only use traditional treatment methods, but also integrate the best and latest research evidence into our clinical practice. Utilising the latest research means we can achieve better outcomes for our clients.
