Here at Macquarie Physiotherapy, we think we are great at what we do and wanted to share with you just a few of the reasons we think this is the case!
Having been in business since 1986, we have met a lot of people and formed several close working relationships. Being on good terms with various neurosurgeons and orthopaedic specialists means we can organise timely appointments when required. This makes sure you get the best possible care at all times. We can also provide guidance when it comes to other Allied Health Professionals such as podiatrists and dieticians.
Hour long initial consultations
Many practices in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie work on 30-minute consultations. When you come to Macquarie Physiotherapy for the first time make sure you allow for an hour-long appointment. We pride ourselves on treating the source of the problem, not just the symptoms. As such, we allow plenty of time for a thorough assessment so we can get to the bottom of things. The hour-long appointment also means we can begin treatment and get things moving in the right direction!
It can be deflating when you ask for help only to be given a sheet of paper with exercises printed on it. Don’t get us wrong, we strongly believe in the benefits of exercise as part of a rehabilitation program. However, sometimes you need a little bit of help along the way. Because we want to get you better as soon as we can, our physiotherapists take a hands-on approach to facilitate the recovery process.
Three great locations
Having three practices means Macquarie Physiotherapy has flexible appointment options for everyone in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas. This allows your rehabilitation process to go as smoothly as possible. The fact that they all have off street parking is just an added bonus!
Adjacent to our Gateshead practice is our fully equipped gym! This is a truly unique service which can allow the final touches of your rehabilitation to be completed in a supervised and supportive environment. We also run our Living Longer Living Stronger Classes in the gym. These are designed for everyone looking to improve their quality of life and overall health!
A fully equipped gym needs to have a fully equipped team to support it, and we have just that! As you move through our gym you will come to meet our Accredited Exercises Physiologists (that’s right, we have two!), our level 3 Strength and Conditioning coach (he also happens to be one of our accredited exercise physiologists), our Accredited Exercise Scientist (who is also studying to become an accredited exercise physiologist) and our experienced exercise professional.
If everything above wasn’t enough, we also have a qualified massage therapist with appointments available for booking on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays.
