Welcome North West Physio!
We’re excited to welcome our new physiotherapy partner to the Health Hub, North West Physio. From Monday 17 October, Roger McIntosh and Callum Fisher from North West Physio are taking appointments and are keen to help you with all your physiotherapy needs.
Roger comes with a world of experience, having established his first North West Physio in 1996, and he now has seven locations across North Brisbane. We’re proud to be partnering with Roger and his team to deliver friendly service and exceptional treatment at the Health Hub.
If you’ve been meaning to book yourself into the physio for a while, now is a great time to come and meet Roger or Callum, and take care of any niggles or pain you may have.
Services and treatments
Roger and Callum will work closely with you to achieve optimum health and wellbeing. With in-depth knowledge of the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of injuries, they emphasise self-management techniques and individual rehabilitation exercises for issues such as:
- Sports Injuries
- Back and Neck Pain
- Group Exercise
- Injury Prevention
- Post-Op Rehab
Group physiotherapy focuses on using deep central muscles to stabilise the core while performing specific movements. These clinical exercises are designed to improve muscle strength, postural balance and tone.
There are numerous benefits of group physiotherapy, which include:
- Decreased pain of daily activities
- Preventing further episodes of pain
- Improving and maintaining good posture
- Improving muscle strength and endurance
Group physiotherapy is also great at teaching you how to recruit your muscles more efficiently to improve sports performance. A physiotherapy assessment is required prior to group physiotherapy classes, so Roger or Callum can tailor a program to your individual needs.
