About Us

Physiotherapy has evolved over time. While we still maintain our focus on skilled assessment, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injury, pain and dysfunction; our approach has adapted and grown with the most current research and literature suggesting best practice and evidence-based methods.

Effective care depends on obtaining effective results. At CPS we understand that results come from having the most current, evidence-based knowledge of how to assess, treat, and perhaps more importantly, prevent injuries. We take the time to understand your problem, not just treat symptoms.

We are currently operating within the MyHealth Medical Centre in Newington, Burwood Plaza and at our new location in South Eveleigh, allowing us to work closely with GP’s and other allied health professionals such as podiatrists and dietitians. Our clinics continue to service the local community from athletes to the weekend warriors and everyone in between.
