Our Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function and use hands- on therapies to assist their clients back to full function and health.
Our difference lies in 5 key beliefs, which has a tremendous impact on the care that you receive. These beliefs shape everything we do and are designed to bring out the best in both our staff and our clients.
What is Physiotherapy
Physiotherapists are skilled health professionals who assess, diagnose and treat people with movement disorders. They are also involved in the prevention of injuries and the maintenance of a healthy, functioning body. Whether you’re young or old, active or taking it easy, there’s a good chance you could benefit from physiotherapy at some point.
A doctor’s referral is not necessary to see a physiotherapist in private practice, although frequently your doctor will work in partnership with your physio to plan and manage treatment for a specific condition. Physiotherapists may also work in conjunction with other health professionals, such as medical specialists, surgeons, podiatrists and massage therapists.
Whilst many patients visit a physiotherapist after experiencing pain or injury, many also find the value in routine physio care as a measure of prevention and a means of maintaining good health.

As well as the physical aspect of recovery, much attention is also paid toward the emotional side effects of cancer. Reassurance and help rebuilding confidence are important aspects of the program. Because everyone’s situation is so different with regard to their diagnosis, the emphasis of the Pinc Program is on goal setting and personalised programs. Clients of all levels of fitness are encouraged to partake in the program. The Pinc Program has been divided into three distinct stages. These are:
- Post-operational stage
- Recovery phase for clients undertaking chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments and
- Fitness phase when treatment has finished.
