Having been in private practice physiotherapy for over 30 years, and operating as a Cairns based physiotherapist for over 25 years, owner and operator of Proactive Physiotherapy, Julie Faulks has always believed that high quality hands on assessment and treatment in a caring, friendly and professional manner is one of the most important services a physiotherapist can offer. She believes that good communication and education in self management techniques helps her clients gain ownership of their personal situation while allowing them to become proactive in the treatment of their own conditions to get better sooner. By developing a clear understanding of each client’s personal situation and lifestyle, and being interested and focussed on their goals and desires, Julie is able to then define and deliver specific and consistent treatments based around individual patient needs.
Julie’s desire to always give the patient the best possible result has resulted in 30 years of continuing education in order for her to remain updated on the best and most effective ways of delivering optimum results to each and every client.
In 2000, Julie completed a manipulative Masters Degree which advanced her manual musculoskeletal skills to even higher levels. Although her major thesis involved an extensive focus on the treatment of the neck and jaw pain including headaches, Julie considers that her special skills are more akin to treating the whole spine, from the hips to the head. Julie recently completed her training to become a senior level bounce back instructor which allows her to train other bounce back practitioners throughout Australia. Julie believes in a healthy, happy and balanced life and believes that leading by example is one of the best way to inspire her patients.

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.
