Physical Healthcare offers a variety of services to assist our clients with their pain and rehabilitation. Deeply integrated within our philosophy and practice is the utilisation of a hands-on approach or manual therapy. In most instances, our physiotherapists will incorporate manual therapy within a multi-modal treatment package such as exercise, lifestyle advice, electrotherapy and dry needling to enhance recovery.
