About Us

Welcome to Focus Movement Therapy

Looking for A Physiotherapist in Newcastle West with a clear vision?

We understand that the outcome of real rehabilitation is a return to function, fitness and sustainable athleticism.

Focus Movement Therapy is an ever evolving practice dedicated to movement restoration and performance rehabilitation. What drives us is our mission to empower our local community to pursue life without pain or restriction.

We look at the big picture. There is a crisis occurring globally where lifestyle related illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and certain Cancers are on the rise. Desk bound jobs, time pressures and general inactivity all contribute to the sedentary way of life most in the community are accustomed to.

The outcome of real rehabilitation goes well beyond pain relief. It is a return to function, fitness and performance. We need to restore your confidence in your body. It is not fragile but robust.

Our practice is directed at restoring movement and performance. One of our core beliefs is that the human Body is innately resilient. We currently sit on top of the food chain because up until fifty years ago we were the most adaptable species with the ability to efficiently cover great distances in search of food and shelter. All of it required movement. In this world of convenience and quick fixes there is no way around allocating time for better movement. The health of all bodily systems is dependent on movement. Let us guide you back to better movement so that you can move well, move often and enjoy a healthy life free of pain and restriction.

A note from the Directors:

At Focus Movement Therapy we look at function and reintegrate the injured part back into a healthy movement system. We placer an emphasis on control of movement. We then progressively challenge the movement system depending on your requirements to ensure durability. We are able to deliver on this approach because we are clinicians with sound understanding of motor control, strength and conditioning. We find a tailored solution for you, to gain real rehabilitation in returning to function, performance and sustainable athleticism.

Our goal is your goal.

Focus Movement Therapy was born out of a relentless pursuit to find a better way of offering healthcare. To be frank, we were dissatisfied with the standard model of physiotherapy and believed in better. We’ve undertaken studies and sought tutelage from some of leaders in rehabilitation, fitness and performance and have developed our own approach to movement restoration and performance rehabilitation. We are passionate about empowering others to move so that they can pursue what they enjoy most in love. We pride ourselves in what we do and the outcomes we create.
