Established in 2004, North Perth Physiotherapy has grown to become a trusted and respected provider of physiotherapy and exercise services in North Perth and surrounding areas.
Our strong locally based referral network of doctors and allied health professionals means you not only have comfort in the quality of your physiotherapist but access to other like minded healthcare professionals in Western Australia should you need them.
Our team has extensive experience in treating and rehabilitating people from a broad section of our community and we are proud of our involvement with the West Australian State Football Academy and ongoing service at the Hopman Cup.
Our team of physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and remedial massage therapist believe in a treatment approach that focuses on quality "hands on" therapy. North Perth Physiotherapy also embraces new technology and research to provide our patients with a thorough physiotherapy service. Each consultation is conducted in a private treatment room. We believe this is what differentiates us from other service providers when relieving your pain.
