Our Research

Our clinic and it’s staff are constantly updating our knowledge base and skills with the best and latest evidence based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation techniques. In addition, our team has been involved in creating research in conjunction with both Macquarie University and the University of Sydney, as well collaborating with global universities. Our staff have presented at international conferences and also assist in organising conferences such the Australian Physiotherapy Association conference.

From time to time, our clinic may be involved in research and you may even be asked to take part as a participant in a research trial. This is an exciting way that you, as a patient, may help to push our knowledge base even further forward.
