We pride ourselves on accurate and prompt diagnosis. Our physios will identify factors in your everyday life and posture that may contribute to your injury. These factors are addressed with research-based treatments and practical strategies for management in everyday life. Your time is spent one-on-one with your physiotherapist, in an environment which is friendly, relaxed and individually-focused.
Our physiotherapists are active members of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, ensuring ongoing, up-to-date professional development and a continually evolving knowledge base.
As an extension of our clinical service, SMPC can offer a strong network of orthopaedic surgeons, general practitioners and medical specialists for multidisciplinary management of more complicated injuries and conditions.
At South Melbourne Physio Clinic we also provide professional and accredited Podiatry and Dietitian services for all of your comprehensive health management needs.
