Physiotherapy at Viva

IMG_5380Our philosophy is simple: all our appointments are at least 30 minutes in duration and 100% of this time is spent one-on-one with your physiotherapist.

This provides us with the opportunity to listen to the information you give us, and tailor a personalised plan to your specific problem. By allowing 45 minutes for your initial appointment, we also take extra time to learn your history and ensure you have a correct diagnosis.

Our physiotherapists are all highly qualified with a commitment to ongoing self-education, using the latest evidence-based research. All physiotherapists are members of the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
