Physiotherapists are health professionals, specialising in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of physical dysfunction. They are often referred to as “movement specialists”. At Back In Strength, our physiotherapists take that philosophy even further! All our physiotherapists in Deakin use their clinical experience to diagnose accurately and treat effectively, THEN we add the extra step – developing power and strength in your movement – to ensure a long term solution. That’s where the Back in Strength exercise rehabilitation comes in.
At Back in Strength, we will listen to your needs, help you understand what’s wrong and plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition.
