Coolaroo Physiotherapy offers musculoskeletal management of the highest standard backed by scientific studies, with no standardized treatment, but treatment dependent upon expert individual assessment with a specifically tailored treatment program with realistic outcomes formulated by David and Alex. Every patient is managed using a biopsychosocial approach taking into account lifestyle factors, work, rest, and play to improve not just the injury but quality of life overall.

Coolaroo Physiotherapy offers an evidence-based approach, so the only tools are David’s and Alex’s hands. There are no outdated electrotherapy modalities, just scientifically proven manual techniques.
