About Us

What makes our practice different?

At Inspired Physio you don’t have to share your consultation time with a few other clients that your therapist goes between or be worried that someone in the next cubicle / curtain will hear sensitive and private medical information about yourself because we know the importance of one on one consultations and client confidentiality.

You are the soul focus for your consultation as we never double book and we also have private consultation rooms to ensure that your private information is not overheard by others.

We are also all about convenience being associated with Hicaps ‘on the spot’ claims, where we can swipe your private health fund card and all you will have to pay is the remaining ‘gap’.

Our philosophy at Inspired Physio is to:

  • Inspire you to take control of your pain
  • Nurturing environment with quality customer service
  • Strive to provide a holistic approach to health
  • Provide the highest standard of physiotherapy care
  • Improving the health of our clients by listening to their needs
  • Respecting our client views and goals
  • Educate our clients on how to take control of their health
  • Dedicated to staying up to date with the latest research and treatment techniques
