The Values of Body Base Physio

Based on the values of authenticity, excellence, and functionality, Body Base Physio was established because we believe in patient-centered care, education, optimising healing and recovery and long-term management of chronic conditions. Body Base Physio aims to provide a welcoming and friendly environment. We promote a holistic and active approach to health and we work towards sustainable health solutions, encouraging you to take charge of your health and well being, for better long-term health outcomes.

Successful physiotherapy is a combination of working within a well-defined scope of practice, building trust and being able to empathise with patients whilst educating them to self-manage injuries, where possible. Body Base Physiotherapy will offer a practical combination of hands-on manual therapy, progressing to functional movements utilising evidence-based clinical pilates and resistance exercises.

Rapport and relationships with patients are a core principle. We will not hesitate to refer you on to a select profession for further treatment or a second opinion if need be. It is important to remember that there is not a single track for physiotherapy rehabilitation. The same pathology may present in a variety of signs and symptoms, and will often respond differently to similar treatments, depending on the episode. Keep an open mind and listen to your body, after all, you are the expert of your own body. We are able to apply theoretical and practical experience to our knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology to help guide your plan to better health and well being.
