Caring and ultra-supportive physiotherapy services

From physical rehabilitation, pain management and injury prevention through to achieving optimal function and health, Fizzio For Life provide trusted and caring physiotherapy services throughout the Logan region.

What exactly does a physiotherapist do?

Our physiotherapists are university-qualified allied health professionals who provide a range of diagnostic, therapeutic and support services to our patients. Working closely in partnership with your GP, we assist you in planning and managing your treatment.

We exist to help you restore, maintain and optimise your mobility, function and long-term well-being.

 

How can Fizzio For Life help you?

Essentially, we’re your physio wing-team, assisting you to move better, recover faster and prevent further injuries. While the scope of our physiotherapy services is broad, our expertise is focused.

Whether you’re suffering from a new acute injury or a chronic long-term condition, our caring team is right by your side.

We help you:

  • rehabilitate from surgery, illness or injury
  • relieve back and neck pain
  • improve your function and mobility as you age
  • manage chronic disease
  • manage vertigo
  • treat disc bulge and protrusion
  • manage incontinence and pelvic floor
  • become actively involved in your own recovery

Sharing our knowledge and expertise with you, we educate you about your condition and help you function well in all areas of your life. We also provide unwavering education and support to our local Logan community.

 

What to expect at your first consultation

Your first consultation with Fizzio For Life involves a lot of listening - on our part. Taking the time to ask you the right questions, our dedicated physio will explore your health history with you, listen intently to your concerns, educate you about your condition and help you set future goals.

Next, we assess and diagnose your condition and movement capacity, while testing your capabilities. Offering you hands-on therapy, this may include:

  • joint manipulation or mobilisation
  • muscle re-education
  • dry-needling
  • massage
  • stretches and exercises.

Using the information you’ve shared with us, we then assess the way you move. This enables us to formulate a tailored plan for your treatment. Dependent on our assessment, this plan may include other specific treatments such as exercise physiology or hydrotherapy. We may refer you for x-rays or other tests, supply you with specific physio-equipment, or liaise with your doctor to coordinate your care.

 

How you can expect to feel after your first visit

Our goal is for you to feel better as soon as possible. However, sometimes it can take a little time for your pain to settle down. The time it takes is largely dependent on your injury or condition, how long it’s existed and any other health concerns you may have.

After visiting our team, you will feel supported, confident, motivated and empowered. We always ensure you fully understand your condition and have a clear pathway to recovery and a better quality of life.

 

Why you can trust in our exceptional clinical care

The practice of physiotherapy is both scientific and evidence-based, with each protocol and treatment plan being continuously reviewed and rigorously tested. Our physiotherapists undertake continuous professional development to ensure you always receive the most effective and appropriate care.

With physiotherapy standards upheld by the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Agency (AHPRA), you can rest easy knowing that our team upholds a high level of professionalism and accountability. Always.
