Musculoskeletal and Sport Injury Management
We have a team of expert physiotherapists headed by Warrick Pearson (Director, My Physio Pty Ltd), who provide high quality care to the general and sporting public. We listen, and seek to develop individualised treatment plans that focus on getting optimal results for each of our clients.

We are focused on excellent communication and will work closely with your Doctor, Surgeon, Coach or Personal Trainer to ensure co-ordinated care is provided.

Hydrotherapy
Water is a supportive, relatively unloaded environment, that is ideal for training in core stabilisation, spinal and orthopaedic rehabilitation following injury or surgery, as well as for strength and flexibility training for arthritis sufferers. In addition, Hydrotherapy has been shown to be an excellent and effective way to strengthen before surgery, and enhances recovery after surgery.

We design individualised hydrotherapy programs that can be performed in group physiotherapist-led classes or in one-on-one Aquatic Physiotherapy consultations in our onsite facilities.
The new hydrotherapy pool at GESAC is a massive 200sqm, and boasts a state of the art UV chlorination system. It has ramp and hoist access. The pool runs at 34-35 degrees – perfect for aquatic exercise!

BOUNCE back ®
We are one of only two agents delivering the BOUNCE back® exercise program in Victoria (40 agents across Aus and NZ). BOUNCE back® classes typically consist of an 8 week series of one hour classes, with specific exercises using balls and exercise bands, to progressively improve your spinal and core strength, balance and co-ordination. Each week participants receive an illustrated handout of home exercises to consolidate the exercises taught in class, which is also duplicated on a web-based platform for use on Smart Phones, Tablets and computers. The classes are highly specialised, physiotherapist delivered and tailored to each individual.
Research to date on BOUNCE back® participants shows significant improvements for peolpe with acute and recurrent low back pain. The program is designed for anyone, from back pain sufferers to post surgical patients and aven the elite athlete or manual worker 

Clinical Pilates
Our small group and individual clinical Pilates sessions incorporate the use of the reformer and trapeze table apparatus. Our Pilates trained physiotherapists will progress you through an individualised program that focuses on dynamic core stability training, supportive and controlled strength training and postural correction. Clinical Pilates is graded to suit people of any ability. It is ideal to assist in the management of back, hip and pelvic pain as well as lower limb injuries (including sporting and dance injuries). We also work with many expectant mothers, and encourage Clinical Pilates class participation right up to the final weeks of pregnancy.
