THE MOVEMENT WORKSHOP
The Movement Workshop Physiotherapy believes that the best outcomes are achieved by working together. There are many paths that will lead to quality outcomes, health and improved quality of life. We work together with you to determine which path is right for you.
We use our many tools to assess your condition and aim to address the cause of your injury not just the symptoms. The same approach is used for everyone, whether you need help with sport, work or daily living.
At The Movement Workshop Physiotherapy there is a strong emphasis on evidence based practice and providing the highest quality care. Our appointments are all a minimum of 30 minutes of one on one time with your physiotherapist.
