Actively Aging

Improving Your Health Through Activity And Education

As you age, common home chores such as reaching, lifting or gardening can become difficult if you no longer have the physical strength or flexibility. This weakness and stiffness can lead to injuries, incapacity and a loss of independence. But the good news is that to avoid this situation, all you need to do is add some structured activity into your daily life in the form of specific exercises as well as prolonged, sustained movement such as walking or swimming. Essentially, what keeps you active is ‘activity’ itself!

By committing a small amount of time everyday to some form of structured exercise, you’re investing in a ‘superannuation fund’ of health and wellbeing for a happier, healthier, independent future. You’ll feel better in every way!

Contact Proactive Physiotherapy Clinic today and find out how our fun and interactive exercise programs can become an important part of your ongoing health and well-being.

COVID 19 & Telehealth Notice

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: physio@proactivephysio.com.au, 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.
