Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means. Physiotherapy aims to restore optimal physical function and performance by addressing imbalances or dysfunction that may cause pain and reduced mobility.
Physiotherapists are extensively trained in manual therapy, which means we are “hands on” with our patients. This may include massage and joint mobilisation and manipulation, as well as muscle stretching, which we achieve using a wide variety of techniques.
Physiotherapists can develop treatment and management plans that suit your needs and will most effectively address the specific diagnosis.
At Northern Spinal near Fawkner, we pride ourselves on personalised, complete patient care and aim to provide the most up to date and effective treatment and injury management to get you moving and feeling your best. An initial physio consultation involves a thorough assessment and informed diagnosis which considers relevant symptoms and your medical history.

Physiotherapy is trusted by sports professionals, families and everyday Australians for the effective treatment of a range of conditions which cause pain and reduced mobility. Our team of physiotherapists look at the factors which may contribute to the problem or injury of the patient.
By addressing poor posture, improper techniques, muscle imbalances, poor work practices, or other bad habits the our experienced physiotherapists are able to address these issues and hence treat the patient as a whole. This approach reduces the likelihood of the same injury happening again in the future and also reduces any worsening of the condition or any more degeneration/dysfunction of the patients condition.
