Are you feeling your age? Have those annoying niggles become your daily companion? Have you suffered an injury at work, hurt your neck in a car accident, or rolled your ankle playing sport on the weekend? No matter what it is that has made you seek physiotherapy treatment or whether you are young or old, let a Move Well Physiotherapist start you on the right path to full pain-free function.

You’ll be in good hands!

 

 Why see a Move Well Physiotherapist?
 

1Firstly, chances are we have a clinic near you. Move Well currently operates 16 clinics in Perth, with the recent addition of the Pearsall, Kinross and Joondalup Gate Clinics.

2Secondly, we are very good at what we do. Move Well Physiotherapists provide excellent patient care through high clinical and professional standards and exceptional customer service. Ongoing research into physiotherapy clinical practice and technology have facilitated significant advances in physiotherapy. However, implementing these advances into private practice and providing superior clinical services is often beyond the expertise and economic viability of an individual physiotherapy clinic. Move Well Physiotherapists regularly update their knowledge and skills by attending group training sessions and attending courses accredited by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.

3Thirdly, we offer a variety of services so once we have assessed your problem we can identify the best way to solve it. No two problems are ever the same. Move Well’s network of clinics collectively provide a comprehensive range of specialised physiotherapy services including manipulative therapy, sports physiotherapy, real-time ultrasound imaging, exercise prescription services, dry needling, hydrotherapy, Pilates and occupational health services.

4Fourthly, we have been doing this for a long time. The directors and management of Move Well have been operating physiotherapy and rehabilitation services in Australia for over 25 years. Every clinic manager is also an owner, so we put our heart and soul into what we do. You can read a bit more about us below.
We can assess your problem, treat your problem, educate you about your problem, and rehabilitate your problem. And we do all of these things well.
