Editorial Policy

Simple, Authorative & Trustworthy Content

PhysioAdvisor is designed to be a comprehensive resource offering simple, authoritative information you can trust from qualified professionals who are experts in the field.

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.

With every article written by a qualified and experienced Physiotherapist and then reviewed by another separate qualified and experienced Physiotherapist, you can be confident our articles contain content you can trust.

We also use a similar approach to that used in clinical practise – simplifying complex topics so both patients (i.e. anyone without medical training) and health professionals, can easily understand.

Each article is independently researched by our experienced physiotherapists using our strict sourcing guidelines. We use credible scientific research (ideally from high quality randomised controlled trials, when available) to guide our evidence based article creation and supplement this with our extensive clinical experience.

Our Article Creation Process

  1. Research (Conducted by experienced Physiotherapist)
  2. Write Article (by same Physiotherapist)
  3. Independent Physiotherapy Review and Fact Check (by a separate experienced Physiotherapist)
  4. Discuss and implement key changes based on evidence based guidelines
  5. Publish
  6. Review & Update (by experienced Physiotherapist) as new research emerges

Our Authors

PhysioAdvisor deliberately uses ONLY qualified and experienced Physiotherapists for all of our content creation to ensure all content is written by experts in the field.

We DO NOT use other medical staff, allied health staff, administrative staff or journalists who have experience in other (sometimes related and sometimes unrelated) areas.

Unique Content

PhysioAdvisor contains unique content created by our team of experienced Physiotherapists that is not available elsewhere. Some of this unique content includes step by step rehabilitation, treatment and exercises guides for specific injuries. Our experienced Physiotherapists have created this content with the goal of empowering you to take control of your injury. It is based on the latest research and our years of clinical experience. Some of this information is only available for PhysioAdvisor members (who love our site):

  • 95% of members are happy, very happy or extremely happy with their membership
  • 95% would recommend us to family and friends.

Updating Content

PhysioAdvisor’s Physiotherapists continually monitor the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy space (i.e. anything you’d see a Physiotherapist for in private practise e.g. injury treatment, management, rehabilitation etc.) and general health and wellness space. We update our articles as new research and information becomes available.

Content Endorsement

PhysioAdvisor’s content is independently endorsed by spine and orthopaedic surgeon, Mr John Choi.

Our Vision

At PhysioAdvisor, we understand that finding online health information you can trust from qualified professionals can be a challenge.

Our goal is to become the world’s leading physiotherapy website, providing you with the required tools to accelerate your body’s natural healing process and hasten your return to activity and wellness all from a most trusted source.
