About Us

Welcome to PhysioAdvisor – Our Vision

Become a member Best

At PhysioAdvisor, we believe your path to recovery following injury doesn’t need to be a prolonged, expensive or arduous one.

Our team of experienced physiotherapists know that many people endure significantly prolonged recovery times following injury due to poor management. This may be due to inadequate rest from aggravating activities, inappropriate self-treatment or the ‘see if it gets better by itself’ approach often resulting in additional tissue damage and delays in seeking the professional advice required to hasten your recovery. To ensure optimal injury management, immediate, appropriate treatment is essential.

With this in mind, PhysioAdvisor was established in 2008 by a team of dedicated and experienced physiotherapists with the aim of helping you take control of your injury.

PhysioAdvisor is designed to be a comprehensive resource offering simple, authoritative information you can trust from qualified professionals and is endorsed by spine and orthopaedic surgeon, Mr John Choi. All content on our website is written and reviewed by our team of qualified and experienced physiotherapists each with more than 17 years of clinical experience (Learn more about our editorial policy).
