About Us

Hawthorn Physiotherapy Clinic has been committed to providing physiotherapy services to Hawthorn and surrounding communities since 1974. These years have incorporated 30 years association with the Hawthorn Football Club, as well as being committed time to various amateur local sporting clubs.

The physiotherapists at Hawthorn Physiotherapy Clinic are highly experienced in managing rehabilitation following orthopaedic surgery. The physiotherapist treating you in most cases will know your surgeon and the individual protocol the surgeon uses so that your recovery is individually catered to in every way.

We treat patients from all walks of life and of all levels of ability, from elite athletes, to those who enjoy social sports, to those simply wanting to return to their daily routine.

Our physiotherapists are capable of taking you from crutches back to your daily activities. By having direct communication with your doctor or surgeon as often as required, we can ensure that if any difficulties arise they are tackled at the earliest possible stage. Our physiotherapists participate in a continuing education program, keeping them at the forefront of knowledge in recovery after surgery and many other areas of treatment.

Our physiotherapists have had a long involvement with treating Hawthorn Football Club players. Through this involvement, we have developed more efficient and effective ways to return players to their game, from which you can also benefit.
