Northside Physiotherapy Clinic - pt Health
"Northside Physio treats you like a person rather than just another appointment slot. I feel cared for and know that my appointment time isn't being split between multiple other patients like other clinics do. I'd definitely recommend any of my friends and family to seek physio at Northside Physio."
"I was referred to Northside Physiotherapy Clinic after I was involved in a car accident, in which I was rear ended. After about 6 weeks of physio twice a day, I was back to full movement and little to no stiffness! It was also an extremely welcoming and non judgmental environment, 10/10 recommend this clinic!"
