Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy Monbulk

Our in-clinic physiotherapist Scott has a strong history of working in private practice helping patients achieve their best health possible. Growing up, Scott was a competitive swimmer whose ongoing injuries meant he spent more time out of the water and in physiotherapy. So began his interest in understanding the human body and learning how to best treat and return people to doing what they love most.

About Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a treatment to help promote, maintain, restore, and make the most of the mobility, function, and well-being of the patient. Physiotherapy plays a role in the patient’s physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. An effective physiotherapist gets you involved in and committed to your own recovery.

Along with other medical treatments, physiotherapy can treat a number of conditions and injuries:

  • Orthopaedic – back pain, arthritis, joint problems, etc.
  • Neurological – Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, etc.

For general wellness, physiotherapy counteracts the effects of aging through learning skills on staying mobile and flexible.
