Physiotherapy for Belgrave locals
Belgrave is a vibrant and community-minded town in the foothills of the Dandenongs. It boasts a number of restaurants and eateries covering many styles, including excellent Vietnamese, Indian and Chinese (as well as traditional fish, chicken and chips takeaways). These businesses are for the most part locally owned and run. Multi-national corporations have had a difficult time finding a place in Belgrave. When McDonalds proposed to demolish a local restaurant in neighbouring Tecoma to make way for their own restaurant, a furious and prolonged protest was undertaken by the local community. The protest continues to this day.
Hills Physiotherapy has been in operation for over thirty years now and owes its success to a professional, one on one service. It caters to the specific needs of the local populace in an increasing number of locations, including two locations near Belgrave.

Belgrave is a Popular Tourist Destination
Belgrave is a popular spot for tourists at all times of the year. From the point of view of physiotherapy services relevant to the Belgrave area, the main needs are attributed to cycling the often steep and winding roads in the surrounding suburbs of Kallista, Olinda and Sassafras, combined with tackling the infamous 1000 Steps in the neighbouring Upper Ferntree Gully.
The latter recreational pursuit is immensely popular with both locals and tourists alike. Whilst cyclists are generally physically fit and up to the challenge of riding the local roads, the same is not always true for those attempting the 1000 Steps Memorial Walking Track. People come from all over Melbourne and beyond to climb this steep and often slippery path. They are often not prepared and find themselves presenting to Hills Physiotherapy with all manner of related injuries, from strained muscles and ankles trauma to torn ligaments. Fortunately, all these mishaps can be treated by the specialists at Hills Physiotherapy near Belgrave.
Proper application of the relevant style of Physiotherapy will help the patient with almost immediate relief from their existing ailments. We also provide ongoing support throughout the recovery period. Exercise regimes are tailor made to each individual client. The clients are in turn educated as well as assisted throughout recovery to rebuild the damaged area.
