We practice with a strong “hands on” approach, utilising massage, manual therapies, and manipulation, teamed up with movement therapy through strengthening and rehabilitation. We believe in holistic management; we have two massage therapists on-site to supplement, and a close working relationship with local health professionals to support a complete and holistic approach to complement physiotherapy management, where needed.
We also have a strong focus on Pilates, post-surgical physiotherapy, sports physio, pain management, customised exercise/training programs and corporate health.

Hailing from the Central West, Alexi moved to Newcastle in 2014 to start university. Brought up with a family of passionate sporting and health enthusiasts, Alexi was no exception and her tragic love for sport and the science behind the human body led her to start a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the University of Newcastle. Now in the final year of her Physiotherapy degree, Alexi is assisting with Peak Physio’s Strength and Balance classes, allowing her to utilise the skills she’s learned at university. Alexi focuses on making the exercise classes fun and practical, all while giving the body a good work out to help increase our clients’ overall strength and keep them moving freely.

Sounds too good to be true?
It’s not. Exercise is the best, cheapest and most effective medicine we have. Its benefits are unmatched in the holistic perspective of health.
Once fairly rare, joint replacements now seem to be almost a rite of passage among the older population. Given the growing popularity of joint replacement procedures, we thought it was time to take an in-depth look from the perspective of a physiotherapist.
Let’s start with the basics:
The shoulder is an especially complex area of the body, anatomically speaking, and unfortunately that means there are many potential areas for injury. The shoulder joint encompasses the junction where the upper arm bone (humerus) meets the collar bone (clavicle) and the shoulder blade (scapula) at the back.
