General physiotherapy

The assessment, diagnosis and treatment of general musculoskeletal injuries or pain that arises out of the activities of daily living. Are you putting up with pain unnecessarily? Talk to one of our friendly staff to find out if physiotherapy can help. (No doctors referral necessary).

Sports Injuries

The assessment, diagnosis and treatment of injuries or pain arising from playing sport. We know your goal is likely to be to get back into your chosen sport as quickly as possible.  We can guide you back into your sport in the safest and fastest way achievable.

Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

Leading-edge pre and post-surgical treatment is offered. Prevent is an Authorised Bodyflow clinic. Attendance at physiotherapy prior to surgery enables accurate assessment of pre-operative function and implementation of appropriate exercise programs to maximise pre-operative function. This in turn maximises the chance of optimal benefit from surgery.
Proactive management, together with a recovery and treatment plan which incorporates Bodyflow technology, can improve post-operative recovery and rehabilitation.

Work Conditioning & Return To Work programs

Personalised programs are developed (determined by the nature of work undertaken by the injured client) and are carried out in the Pilates studio under Physiotherapist supervision. The programs are designed to be work specific and address strengthening the body to enable it to cope with the particular physical stresses of the individual’s work.

These programs are most beneficial in facilitating successful return to work and reducing the likelihood of re-injury once the injured worker has returned to normal work duties.


Workers Compensation

The assessment, diagnosis and treatment of injuries that occur while a person is at work. Workplace injuries vary depending on the nature of work.  Insurance companies are billed directly by the clinic so there is no out of pocket expense to the client.

Veteran Affairs

The assessment, diagnosis and treatment of injuries or pain experienced by our returned service men and women. This includes gold card holders and some white card holders who are eligible for physiotherapy treatment.

Motor Vehicle Injuries

The assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the specific injuries that can arise from motor vehicle accidents. These can include whiplash injuries to the neck, low back pain, chest/rib pain and various other musculoskeletal injuries.

Enhanced Primary Care (EPC)

This is a Medicare initiative that enables access to private Physiotherapy treatment for specific clients that are suffering from a chronic or complex health condition. The treatment services are covered by a rebate from Medicare as prescribed by the client’s GP.

Musculoskeletal Assessments

Our clinicians are able to provide clients with a comprehensive musculoskeletal assessment and report that incorporates:

  • assessment of posture
  • range of motion of each joint
  • assessment of muscle strength
  • muscle balance
  • biomechanics, including gait (walking) analysis.
The information obtained from this is used to recommend appropriate courses of action to correct any musculoskeletal issues found – this may include specific Physiotherapy treatment, home exercise program or gym program.

The same assessment is performed to develop specific gym-based Pilates programs for clients in the clinic. It is a useful tool for reducing the risk of injury or development of pain resulting from poor movement patterns and posture.

It is also useful for sports people who may be looking for an edge on their competitors through a hidden advantage of greater core stability, muscle balance and improved biomechanics.
