Initial assessment

Our physios will work individually with you to achieve your running and fitness goals.

During the initial assessment, we’ll:

  • Discuss and define your goals.
  • Review your history, including exercise experience, injury history, training preferences, etc.
  • Collect your baseline physical measurements.
  • Analyse your movement patterns and posture.
  • Conduct performance testing, assessing strength, endurance, aerobic capacity, flexibility, etc.

The information gained from this assessment will help us design and implement a specialised running program for you.

Follow up treatment

To optimise performance outcomes, we strongly believe and encourage a follow up appointment is necessary to gain full benefits from this package. This ensures any progress made after the first appointment isn’t lost and to advance or re-assess your program if necessary.

During this appointment we may use a range of hands on techniques, including massage, joint manipulations, trigger point therapy, taping and stretching, to create optimal physical foundations to enhance performance.

In addition to this treatment, we will also provide you with self-management techniques, to ensure you can continue improving independently. This involves a prescription of highly specific exercises, return to sport guidelines, and a home program aimed at reinforcing any improvements made.

“No Gap Strap” appointment (Optional)

If you are covered by Private Health Insurance and you require strapping before your race, our “No Gap Strap” allows you to utilise your health insurance without any out of pocket expenses.

No private health insurance? No problem! You’re still entitled to a strapping session for this special offer at $10 a session.

Our “No Gap Strap” appointments are available only on Fridays between 4:00pm and 6:00pm, from which you can sustain the taping benefits up until you’ve reached the finishing line.


This offer is available to any participant of parkrun Australia

To be eligible for this package, all clients must show their individual parkrun barcode as a proof of participation to their first Initial appointment. If failed to do so, they will be charged at the standard rate for their appointment.

HiCAPS is available for instant claiming of your private health fund depending on your health fund coverage.

We are open Monday to Friday, 7am – 7pm. Please phone or email to request an appointment time; we aim to answer all emails within an hour during the week.

Please wear or bring suitable clothing for the physiotherapist to view the area of concern through multiple positions and activities. Adequate toweling is used to drape as required in order to maintain your privacy. Each assessment is unique as it is driven by the presentation and history of your complaint. If you have any concerns or requirements, please discuss these with your therapist.
