Principle Physiotherapist, David McPherson, has been servicing the people and businesses of Coolaroo and surrounding areas since 1991. Emphasis is based on Scientific Evidence-Based management of patients. He is a member of the faculty of Maitland Australia Physiotherapy Seminars (MAPS), one of the largest US providers of Evidence-Based Continuing Education Courses for rehabilitation providers.

What does this mean for you, the patient?

It means a one on one musculoskeletal management of the highest standard, backed by scientific studies, with no standardized treatment, but treatment dependent upon expert individual assessment, with a treatment program specifically tailored for you and your problem, with defined realistic outcomes formulated by both David and You. The patient is always the most important person involved, and David manages all patients using a biopsychosocial approach, meaning the whole person is managed, taking into account your lifestyle factors, work, rest, and play, and striving to improve not just your injury but the quality of your life overall.

This evidence-based approach means the only tools you will find at Coolaroo Physiotherapy are David’s hands and mind. There are no outdated electrotherapy modalities used, just scientifically proven manual techniques.
