We have a unique and comprehensive focus on women’s health issues, with two specialist women’s health physiotherapists on staff making them not only one of the leaders in women’s health in North Queensland, but a leader in the area of women’s health in Queensland. This extraordinary in-house talent also sees the Proactive Physiotherapy clinic as one of the most capable and experienced in the areas of pre-natal and post-natal conditions. Other key healthcare capabilities available at the Proactive Physiotherapy clinic include specialist treatment of chronic pelvic pain, the only clinic in the region which is known for specialist TMJ (jaw) conditions working closely with dentists and the only physiotherapy clinic in Cairns currently offering the Actively Ageing Program.

Your safety is our top priority. We have developed a protocol to ensure that all government recommendations including physical distancing and cleaning are adhered to. We have COVID-safe cleaning procedures in place, we are vetting everyone who comes into the clinic for any symptoms of illness, and we are maintaining social distancing where it is appropriate and possible.

To help minimise any risks, please do not come into the clinic unless you are a patient, parent of a minor who is a patient, or translator or carer for a patient attending the clinic. If you do not wish to come into the clinic, but still require some assistance, please call 40840602 to organise a telehealth appointment.

We look forward to assisting our clients, old and new, in these unusual times and will temper our approach to community safety as the COVID situation fluctuates.

Thank you for your understanding.

Julie Faulks and the entire Proactive Physio team.
