Living with pain, injury or physical restrictions can make each day a challenge. Our talented physiotherapists use their in-depth knowledge of how the body works, combined with hands-on clinical skills, to assess, diagnose and treat these challenges – and help make your future easier and more comfortable.
Physiotherapists work with people at all stages of pain or injury – from long standing aches that have been coming and going for decades after a veteran left service, to new changes to an NDIS participants’ health, function or physical state.
Our physiotherapists tailor their care to best suit patients of all ages, with diverse backgrounds of varying complexities, and with all types of conditions or limitations.
As physiotherapists get down to the ‘root’ of the problem, as well as treating the symptoms, the beneficial effects of physiotherapy are long lasting, and for many, life-long.
Working with a Proactive physiotherapist means that you’re in the hands of a skilled, trusted and respected health professional.
We highly value our team and go above and beyond to ensure that every practitioner is supported to excel in their field.
Our practitioners work collaboratively, sharing knowledge and experience, and have a range of benefits to ensure they can look after their own well-being too.
Assessment – The physo will perform a thorough assessment. Asking questions and gathering health and lifestyle information. They will work with you to understand your current issues and map out your goals.
Education – The physiotherapist will work with you to educate you about the necessary rehab exercises and programs that you can undertake to help with your progress.
Planning – The physiotherapist will work on a personalised plan, both for the session and the entire treatment.
Recommendations – Your physiotherapist may make recommendations for you to see other allied health services like exercise physiologists, occupational therapists, dietitians, or a psychologist. They may also recommend mobility aids or other devices to complement the treatment
Treatment – This can be everything from manual therapy, like massage to cupping to rehabilitation exercises or acupuncture.
We provide Physiotherapy to the general public and a wide range of funding types. Our practitioners work closely with each individual, their families, support network, and relevant funding bodies to ensure ease of access to services for eligible patients. See how Physiotherapy could benefit you!

Generally, the assessments are pain-free but some may cause mild discomfort depending on how complex your issue is. It’s important to give your physiotherapist feedback on how the assessments are feeling, as this will help them determine what tests to do and will help narrow down the options to find the true cause of the symptoms.
Your physio will discuss all of the suitable treatment options with you and your loved ones if present, and together with the physio, you will decide which treatments you’d like to undertake. No treatment is compulsory, and all of them are designed to improve your health and wellbeing, helping you to reach your goals. If you would prefer not to have a particular type of treatment for any reason, simply let your physiotherapist know.
In addition to this, Proactive provides regular and ongoing training and professional development for all of our team to extend their expertise and ensure their skills and knowledge are kept up-to-date with the latest developments in research in the field of sports science. This is important to us both so that we can best serve our clients in developing exercise programmes to address medical conditions and injuries, as well as ensuring our team is well supported in their own professional development and career progression.
This varies widely from person to person depending on which bodily system is involved, the complexity of the condition, and how long you’ve had the symptoms. Following your first appointment, your physiotherapist will outline a rough estimate of how many sessions they think you will need to have and will re-evaluate this as the treatment continues.
