The North Queensland Physiotherapy Treatment Experts for Spinal Care, Sports Injuries and Women’s and Men’s Health

Established since 1989, Proactive Physiotherapy has become recognized as the physiotherapy and healthcare clinic of choice in the North Queensland region.

With a highly experienced team of physiotherapists, administration and customer support staff and massage therapists, the team at Proactive Physiotherapy can help you with almost any condition. Proactive Physiotherapy is well regarded as the leading physiotherapy clinic in Cairns offering a complete range of rehabilitation treatments of any spinal injury or sports injury. Boasting highly experienced and qualified manual therapists, and offering the most comprehensive and exercise and effective rehabilitation programmes available today including BOUNCE Back Spinal Strength and Rehabilitation exercises and Clinical Functional Exercise Classes, there is no wonder more patients achieve better, faster and longer lasting results to their back pain, neck pain and other conditions at this dynamic physiotherapy clinic.

Having a complete spinal rehabilitation capability is not the only core competency available at the Proactive Physiotherapy clinic. 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.

Within the Proactive team you will find the following expert healthcare capabilities:

  • Watson Headache Institute trained instructors – including Cairns’ only Level 3 Watson Headache practitioner
  • Manipulative physiotherapists / Sports physiotherapists
  • Clinical Functional Exercise Classes
  • Specialist women’s health physiotherapists (including specialist pre natal and post natal)
  • Acupuncture and dry needling physiotherapists

The philosophy of Proactive Physiotherapy is not only to have a physiotherapy clinic that gets patients injury and pain free, but to advance patients to their optimum level of performance according to the needs and lifestyles of that specific individual. This is achieved by focusing each individual physiotherapy treatment pathway on the individual’s needs and personal goals while also helping the patient to improve not only their sports injury or back injury, but their general health and well-being allowing them to get the most out of life, work and sport.
