Our main focus at Thrive Health is not only on offering highly experienced physiotherapists, available 6 days a week, but also delivering a great physiotherapy experience. In our opinion physiotherapy treatment from an experienced practitioner has an incredible impact on you reaching your recovery or physical health goals sooner. We are able to deliver great outcomes for you as our Physio’s are trained in and use a combination of exercise-based and hands-on manual techniques. As a Physiotherapy patient within our clinic you will always spend the whole treatment time with your practitioner in a private room (no working on multiple people at once with curtains between each table). We also have a functional rehabilitation gym space within the clinic so we can teach you how to move correctly and therefore prevent unnecessary relapses in the future! Our Philosophy – the treatment you need, with the care you deserve.
