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.

At Proactive Physiotherapy we recognise that people still injure themselves, and are in pain, so we are still open for face-to-face consultations for the time being, In the interests of everybody's health we are trying to minimise these face to face treatments, so if your condition can be helped without face to face treatment we will offer you telehealth or phone consults.
For your safety, we have reduced physiotherapists hours to allow us to have only two physiotherapists and one receptionist in the clinic at any one time. We use screening questionnaires for everyone attending the clinic and have strict sanitising procedures in place.
For anyone that doesn't want to come into the clinic, our telehealth service, “Physio By Video” is up and running. Anybody who is interested in this service should contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone on 40536222 and a physiotherapist can discuss how this works.
Reception will be attended between 830am and 5pm and Monday to Thursday and 830am to midday on Friday, or you can leave us a voice message at other times.
Thank you for your understanding. We wish you all safety and good health in the coming days and weeks.
Julie Faulks and the entire Proactive Physio team.
