We are a Knox Physio offering specialised treatment from a team of experienced physiotherapists.
Adding physio to a Myotherapy clinic is a no-brainer: the two professions work in perfect harmony, as can be experienced at our other locations. Many painful conditions are perfectly well managed by Myotherapists, who have advanced training relieving pain from injuries and conditions, utilising massage and other soft tissue release techniques, as well as some corrective exercise and advice. The benefit of having physiotherapists around is that if a condition fails to improve with this treatment and requires some expert diagnostic assessment – this can be managed in house. Our Knox Physios have rigorous training in musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions, and are experts in managing pain, movement disorder, and rehabilitation. This assistance can come in the form of a joint brief consultation between our Knox Physios and Myotherapists (at no additional cost) or for more complex or severe issues we can book separate appointments for troublesome ailments that require more in depth assessment or intervention.
