The 4 Best Physiotherapy Victoria Clinics Based on Our 50 Point Inspection

The 4 Best Physiotherapy Victoria Clinics Based on Our 50 Point Inspection

In this blog post we’ll share the top physiotherapy clinics in Victoria based on our 50 point inspection we recently completed. 

But first, how can these clinics help you?

Physiotherapists help assess, treat, prevent physical problems and pain, while also helping restore movement and activities that you care about.

After assessing you, they will then tell you their clinical impression and develop a customized treatment plan for you. They will go through the treatment plan, tell you how many treatments you may need, and how much it should cost.

In some cases they may prescribe exercises for you to do at home to maximize your recovery.

What problems do physiotherapists treat?

  • Neck, hand, and back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Problems with bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments
  • Pelvic floor issues such as difficulty controlling bladder and bowel movements.
  • Loss of mobility caused by an injury or due to an illness.
  • Pain, swelling, and loss of movements.

As well as many musculoskeletal conditions like rotator cuff tears and hip bursitis.

If you have an injury you MUST see Lauren! Her excellent expertise quickly helped fixed my neck pain. She was able to diagnose exactly where my injury occurred (which wasn’t directly in my neck) and she followed through with exercises that helped fix the injury. I no longer have neck pain and my mobility in my neck is a lot better. Thank you Lauren.

Marcela Navarro

I am very impressed with Brianna McGarvey. If you have an injury you MUST see her. I am fortunate to have her as my Physiotherapist.

She is very encouraging and supportive. I highly recommend her going through the appointments to gain recovery. Thank you Brianna.

I have fibromyalgia and have struggled to find a physio who knows how to support me without making things worse, but Active Recovery has been amazing! Lauren is great at educating me about my pain and is really responsive to my needs based on what’s happening for me at each appointment. The admin staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. This is a great clinic!

Verified Testimonials

Melanie Carlsen

I had the best massage I’ve ever had today at Equilibrium with Erin. She listened to what my sore spots were and focused on them with just the right amount of pressure. It was equally relaxing and therapeutic!

Shay Alde

I recently took up tennis, and have really been feeling the strain of working muscles I didn’t know existed. I had a one hour massage therapy session with Glen this morning, and it was fantastic. He was kind, professional, and incredibly effective. I waddled in with an awful pinch in my lower back, and walked out strong and upright. Would undoubtedly recommend.

Philip Chu

Had a massage session with Colleen today and my body instantly feel way better from the fatigue I got from work. I required more than medium strength and she was able to provide the right amount of pressure on the right area! Highly recommend her!

Our 11 year old went to Galen for physiotherapy on her wrist. I am so impressed with Galen’s training plan, plus he is personable and professional. Highly highly recommend seeing Galen if you are in need of physiotherapy! Thanks for everything!

Elizabeth Hutton

Throughout my treatment with Physiotherapy and Kinesiology after shoulder surgery the team was amazing. Galen & Maria were always so incredible. They worked with me on my recovery and made sure i was feeling good and supported through the whole process. Could not recommend them enough!!! Will miss seeing them each week.

Tracy Lee

I had a very positive experience with the entire staff at Parkway Physio. Amira Kadri was exceptional in her assessment of my issues. She listened closely and together we narrowed the focus to get the relief needed. I was impressed with the way she changed up the exercises based on my feedback to increase strength without pain in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend Parkway Physio to my friends and colleagues.

A fantastic place to get your body working the way it should! I came in for chronic upper back pain that I couldn’t manage on my own for the past six months. With the help of Matt I was able to get ahead of it and feel strong and happy again! The staff are all very lovely and accommodating. Pricing is very reasonable. They practice social distancing etc so you can feel safe when you go in 🙂

I rarely write reviews, but I have to write one for Nicole Manu, who is a physiotherapist at Synergy. I can’t believe I’ve been seeing her for about 6 years without writing a review! Nicole is the most gentle, patient, knowledgeable and kind physio I have ever seen. She takes her time and truly treats you with so much care. She listens attentively and NEVER makes you feel bad for anything – even when you forget to do your exercises or follow up. Nicole is a wonderful physiotherapist who I would recommend to anyone. I have seen other practitioners at Synergy like Alec, who were also wonderful. I highly recommend Synergy!

Jellina Duncan

Colin was an incredible physiotherapist who helped me feel confident again after two sports injuries. I walked out of each session feeling like I had made significant progress towards healing and returning to sports. After our last session he left me with tools to continue improving my overall fitness and prevent future injuries. My interactions with the other therapists were all pleasant and encouraging as well. On top of all this, the receptionists were kind and helpful throughout the whole process dealing with my insurance. I would highly recommend Synergy to anyone looking for physiotherapy or personal training.
