It really saddens me to write this review as the staff specially Renee at the reception was amazing, but unfortunately as for the knowledge of Tak the male physiotherapist I must say that my time was wasted with him. I only had five free sessions through GP Care Plan & they were scheduled very closely by Tak. I even told him that I feel like I'm seeing you way too soon & each time was mainly spent on talking, some massages & exercise tips. However, what I really needed according to my symptoms was using the shock wave therapy machine as well as suggesting using a heated pool to relive the ongoing pain. Now I have to wait until next year to be able to use another GP Care Plan which is really inconvenient.read more

I simply cannot recommend Modern Physiotherapy highly enough. I have been in the care of the team there for more than four years and, because of them, I have been able to push back spinal surgery for 3 and a half years. The staff take a special and caring interest in their clients and provide a full, rounded service, including modified exercises to suit individuals’ needs. The consult times are also generous, which allows the client and the therapist to fully understand and treat the problem. I have recently had my spinal surgery and would not trust my back to anybody else. A remedial massage therapist has now joined the team, which makes it a complete one-stop-shop to treat any body pain. One also gets results in one, maybe two visits in most cases, without the expense and time of many visits, as is usually the case with other physiotherapy clinics. You won’t find a better physiotherapy team anywhere else in Perth !read more

After a long time trying to find a solution to my neck problem I feel for the first time I may be getting somewhere close to a comfortable solution. My thanks go to Sam for his caring and knowledgeable approach. It has been a journey for me and I still have a way to go, but feel more optimistic than I have for a long while. His staff make it a pleasure to attend and I highly recommend Sam after his very professional approach to my problem. SHIRLEY CHALMERSread more

From the point of walking into Modern Physiotherapy I was blown away by the friendliness an welcoming from the reception staff. My first consultation appointment with Sam was such a great experience, I could not believe how in-depth an inquisitive Sam was about past injuries an problems to figure out what was happening to create the pains I was having. I walked out feeling a million times better than I have in five years with a plan to continue strengthening muscles to help heal. If you are looking for an amazing an friendly physiotherapist don’t go any further than Modern Physiotherapy.read more
