The Personalised Preston Physio Clinic

Wherever in your body you feel pain, we understand how it has the ability to affect your physical well-being and your overall quality of life. And we want you to embrace all that life has to offer!

At Specific Physiotherapy, we focus on not just the symptoms but also manual therapy aimed towards your specific goals with our highly trained healthcare professionals. Our years of experience and knowledge mean we understand the complexities of your musculoskeletal injuries or sports injuries, and our holistic approach ensures we see you as a whole person— not just an injury or condition!

Our Specific Physiotherapy Treatments

Our Preston physiotherapists are focused on finding the most appropriate treatment for you and assisting you on your journey towards optimal health. We understand that no two bodies are the same, so why should two treatment plans be?

Patient getting treatment
We discuss your medical history with you to gain insight into your chronic condition, sports injury, or any musculoskeletal conditions you may have and then walk you through our treatment options. We provide hands-on therapies, including:
Dry needling
Joint manipulation (often used for ankles, knees, the spine, etc)
Trigger point therapy
Strength and conditioning exercises
We may also prescribe specific exercises and provide education that may assist you with your physio treatments. However, our education is just as personalised as our treatments! There are no generic printouts here— instead, we take the time to provide an anatomical explanation of your condition or injury. We detail the expected timeframe, including how long injury management may take, your prognosis, and information about injury prevention. Preston physiotherapists go above and beyond, and our physiotherapy clinic aims for the top!

Physiotherapy Preston: How It Works

1. Initial Assessment

At your physiotherapy consultation, we discuss your concerns and medical history and conduct a thorough assessment. We gather any information we may need about your chronic condition, musculoskeletal injuries, or sports injuries and decide which manual therapy may benefit you.

2. Education and Treatment Plan

Now that we're educated about you, it's time for us to turn the tables! Here, we use our visual learning aids, like anatomy models and posters, to explain your condition in detail. Then, we discuss your manual therapy options and see what you think.

3. Hands-on Treatment

Whether your hands-on treatment includes dry needling, joint mobilisation, Clinical Pilates, or a combination of therapies, we deliver it with a smile here in our Preston physiotherapy clinic.

4. Exercise and Support

Our treatment doesn't begin and end with our hands-on approach. We continue to support you in an effort to prevent future injuries, which could happen to anybody— injury prevention isn't only for those with current injuries, after all!

Your Physiotherapy Questions Answered

No, you don’t need a referral to visit a physio. Book your appointment online at our physiotherapy clinic, and we’ll work with you to create a treatment plan for you.

Yes, we do! We understand the role chronic pain may play in people’s lives, and we aim to play a role in assisting you to manage it. The Medicare initiative Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) allows those with EPC plans to access up to five allied health sessions per calendar year, and we have experience working with people with chronic conditions under this initiative. To find out more, visit our chronic pain page here.

We’re very proud to say yes, we do! Our team has a history of working with AFL teams and has ongoing relationships with many AFL athletes. Whether you aim to be a Magpie, a Hawk, or simply a better runner/water-fetcher at your kids’ soccer games, we work with athletes of all skills and strengths.
In many cases, yes, you may have treatment on the same day as your initial assessment. Sometimes, this may not be possible, for example, if we need to refer you to another practitioner for further evaluation. Still, generally, you may expect to begin treatment on the same day as your assessment.

Specific Physiotherapy is located at 149 Plenty Road, Preston, Vic. Our physiotherapists provide treatments for people in the Preston area, including Coburg, Heidelberg, Thornbury, Northcote, Reservoir, Ivanhoe, and surrounding suburbs.

The number of physio sessions you need will depend on your specific condition and goals, so there’s no one-size-fits-all number of sessions. We’ll discuss how many we expect you will need at your first appointment and update you if this changes throughout your treatment.
Yes, we do. Along with private patients, we also work with TAC and WorkCover patients. Contact us to learn more.
