We are a clinic that has been open for over 20 years. We have clinics in Bondi Junction, Woolooware (Sutherland Shire), Cammeray and Byron Bay. We are a team of musculoskeletal and women’s health physiotherapists and we blend these two skill sets together. We are dynamic, innovative and creative. We are industry leaders in Women's Health Physiotherapy, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, Kids continence and Men's Health.
We blend our musculoskeletal and women’s health skills together. No matter what you come in for, whether it be your foot, your neck, your pelvic floor or your bladder we will consider your whole body and your whole story.
More often than not we are finding that multiple areas connect together in amazing ways. People are often shocked that their back pain could be related to an ankle sprain they did when they were a teen. Or that their shoulder problem could stem from an issue with their ribs. Or even that the reason they leak when you cough and sneeze is because of their tight hip. But we see it all the time. It really is amazing how connected everything in the body is.
What to expect
#1. We will listen to your story
Firstly, we will listen to your story so that we understand not only what the problem is, but what you want to achieve. We will then ask lots of questions about you and your body, such as injuries from the past, past operations, what you do each day, what exercise you do, etc. Some of these questions may at times seem a bit odd, but trust us they are important as they help us figure out all the things that may be contributing to your problem.
We will use the many, many assessment tools we have to assess what we need to. No matter what you come in for we will not only assess the area of concern, but the rest of your body too.
If the problem is pelvic floor related, then this may involve an internal exam as well (performed by one of our female Physiotherapists specialising in women's health).
One thing that we often use here at The Physiotherapy Clinic is our Real Time Ultrasound. It allows us to look at deeper muscles including the core and pelvic floor, to see if they are working correctly. Clients often love this as it allows them to get a better understanding of these deeper muscles as well.
We will make sure you understand what is going on in your body. We will also ensure you understand all the contributing factors, and how everything connects together.
This may involve muscle releases, soft tissue massage, dry needling, or mobilisations. It will always include some sort of exercise, and sometimes we may recommend a group exercise class. We often use the connect therapy approach. Of course, if we feel we need to, we will refer you on to someone else and liase with them if we think it’s appropriate (e.g. sports doctor, gynaecologist, etc).
We are a team who have undertaken extensive ongoing training in all areas of the body. Most of us educate others as well.
We value strength in science, but also innovation and creativity when choosing team members. You will feel that in the approach they take with you as a patient.

Your first appointment will generally be 45 minutes long and cost $170. This gives us enough time to consider your whole story and assess everything we need to. Try and come in a few minutes early so that you have a chance to fill out the paperwork.
Follow up appointments will also be 45 minutes long and cost $155.
If your physiotherapists believes a short consultation is all that is required, the appointment will be 30 minutes long and cost $110.
Although you do not need a referral to come and see us, if you have been sent to us by someone (another physio, a personal trainer, a specialist doctor, your GP, etc), then expect a detailed letter to be written back to them about your visit with us.
Make sure you bring your private health fund card if you have one as you can claim it on the spot. Unfortunately, you cannot claim your treatment under Medicare unless you have been given an Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC) from your GP. Not everyone can get this type of plan and your GP is the best person to talk to about whether or not you are eligible.
