Independently owned.

Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy is independently owned, meaning we are not governed by corporate business structures and key performance indicators. You can be assured you are receiving honest, reliable advice. While many physiotherapy practices offer 20-minute appointments, our appointments are 30 minutes long, giving us time to understand and address the cause of your problem rather than just treat the symptoms.


Manual Therapy/ Hands on Physiotherapy

Manual therapy refers to a broad range of hands on physiotherapy techniques to treat musculoskeletal problems (joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves and the like). Manual therapy includes mobilisations (of joints, nerves or muscles), joint manipulation and soft tissue therapy (deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release and muscle energy techniques). The aim of manual therapy is to restore movement and reduce discomfort. Manual therapy is usually combined with exercise therapy for the prevention and relief of disorders of the musculoskeletal system.  At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy we undergo intense ongoing education to ensure our manual therapy techniques are up to date to give you the best possible outcomes.

Functional Strength and Conditioning (Home Exercise Programs and Gym Based Rehabilitation)

At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy we utilise our vast knowledge of anatomy and pathology to design exercise rehabilitation and general strengthening programs individualised to each patient, combining functional movement with specific strengthening with the overall goal of recovery and injury prevention. Exercise programs are designed to give you independence in managing your condition/injury and return to full function. Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy offers gym rehabilitation and generalised home exercise programs to private, worker’s compensation, motor vehicle, DVA (Department of Veteran Affairs), EPC (Enhanced Primary Care) and self and plan managed NDIS clients.

Dry Needling

The term “dry needling” refers to the use of acupuncture needles within western medicine, which is different to “acupuncture” which is based on traditional Chinese medicine. Dry needling involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into soft tissue to treat musculoskeletal pain/injuries. Lake Gwelup Physiotherapists are qualified in dry needling and partake in regular ongoing education to ensure our techniques are up to date and refined.

Pre and Postoperative Rehabilitation

Surgery is generally the last step in the management of any problem and is typically reserved for when more conservative measures have failed to produce the desired outcomes. At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy we are experienced in both inpatient and outpatient management and rehabilitation following a wide range of surgical interventions.

Motor Vehicle Accident Claims

If you've been injured in a motor vehicle accident, physiotherapy treatment and advice can help your recovery and get you back to doing the things you love sooner. Our physiotherapists at Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy have extensive experience dealing with the motor vehicle accident claims and will utilise our expertise to optimise recovery from whiplash-associated symptoms and other injuries sustained. We pride ourselves on clear communication with your GP and insurer to devise the best treatment plan and return-to-work strategy for optimal outcomes.

Workers compensation claims/workplace injury

Our Physiotherapists at Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy have extensive experience dealing with workers compensation claims. We understand the complexities involved in workers compensation claims, which is why our physiotherapists work collaboratively with all parties involved, including your GP, rehabilitation provider (if applicable), and employer. By fostering open communication and collaboration, we aim to optimise outcomes and facilitate your return to work and daily activities.

Vertigo/Vestibular Physiotherapy

Vertigo refers to the sensation of spinning, some use the term to describe dizziness. Vertigo usually occurs as a consequence of a disorder/dysfunction of the vestibular system, the most common of which is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). If you suffer from spontaneous dizziness or vertigo that comes on after certain head movements or changes in body position (such as rolling in bed or tilting your head backwards) you may be suffering from BPPV. At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy we can assess for this condition and subsequently treat to get you back to living life to the fullest, usually within one session with one simple maneuverer.

TMJ physiotherapy

At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy, our team of experienced physiotherapists have undergone additional Australian Physiotherapy Associated approved training and professional development in the treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Temporomandibular joint pain and dysfunction (TMD) can significantly impact your quality of life, affecting your ability to eat, speak, and even sleep comfortably.

NDIS Physiotherapy

At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy, we are dedicated to providing high-quality care and support to all self-managed and plan-managed NDIS participants.

Our NDIS physiotherapy services are designed to address a range of needs and goals, including hydrotherapy, gym-based strengthening and rehabilitation, as well as in clinic or at-home physiotherapy visits.

Hydrotherapy (Aquatic Physiotherapy)

Hydrotherapy combines the benefits of reduced joint loading (from water buoyancy), relaxation properties of warm water and exercise therapy. It is the perfect place to start exercising if you are in pain, have suffered an injury or had recent surgery requiring graduated weight bearing. There are very few musculoskeletal conditions/injuries that do not benefit from hydrotherapy. Painful joints can be offloaded, and weak muscles can be used more efficiently. Hydrotherapy is also a great place to work on balance for falls prevention as balance can be challenged without the risk of falling. Floats, noodles and kickboards can be used effectively to gradually increase resistance and improve muscle strength.

Home Visits/At Home Physiotherapy

Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy understands that some individuals may face challenges attending clinic appointments due to mobility issues or transportation constraints. That's why we offer convenient at-home physiotherapy services in Gwelup and nearby suburbs.

Our experienced physiotherapists provide high-quality care in the comfort and convenience of your own home. At-home physiotherapy is an excellent option for individuals who may find it difficult to travel to our clinic.

Mobility and Falls Prevention Education and Exercise Programs

Good balance and muscle strength are crucial to maintaining mobility and independence as we age. At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy we are committed to helping you maintain healthy, active and independent lifestyles. Home visits for falls prevention are available. If you have a home care package or are a self or plan managed NDIS client, funding may be available. In addition to home visits, we offer fun and friendly group based and individual hydrotherapy classes aimed at strengthening key muscle groups for mobility, as well as challenge balance/proprioception. Hydrotherapy is a great place to work on balance for falls prevention as balance can be challenged without the risk of falling. We also offer advice on how best to get off the floor should a fall take place and provide patients with simple home exercises aimed at maintaining muscle strength and balance.

Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) Physiotherapy

Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy is proud to offer physiotherapy services to DVA white and gold card holders. Our goal is to provide you with the care and support you need to optimise your health and wellbeing.

As a DVA card holder, you will have access to a range of services at our clinic, including in-room treatment, hydrotherapy, and gym-based rehabilitation. Our experienced physiotherapists are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and improve your quality of life.

Sports Physiotherapy

At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy we have years of experience working with sporting teams. Chris has been involved with Kingsway Amateur Football Club, Stirling Amateur Football Club and Northern Redbacks Women’s Soccer Club. He has a special interest in diagnosing and treating sporting injuries. Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy is open Saturday mornings and offers a pre-game taping service for those who require.

Orthotic Advice/ Prescription

At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy, we understand and take into consideration the impact foot biomechanics can have on overall body function, especially on the lower limbs and lower back. If you're experiencing pain or discomfort, orthotic advice and prescription may help offload the injured/painful area to give it time to calm down.

Our experienced physiotherapists typically assess foot biomechanics in most patients with lower limb issues to determine whether orthotic intervention is necessary to reduce stress on your body.

Telehealth/Online Physiotherapy Consultations

Telehealth physiotherapy is an online alternate to in-clinic physiotherapy. You will speak to your physiotherapist on-screen rather than in person. Your physiotherapist will ask a number of questions and ask you to perform certain movements and tests as required. A growing number of clinical studies have shown telehealth/online physiotherapy consultations are safe, secure, cost effective and in the vast majority of cases equally as effective as an in-room consultation.

Contact us today to schedule a physio appointment or to speak to one of our staff. We have online bookings platform for your convenience.
