I've made awesome progress with my injuries thanks to Hawthorne Physiotherapy Clinic. They focus on healing and progress through a combination of therapies and exercise. The staff actively provide polite and friendly assistance when called and they use modern software like Physi Track to keep patients like me on track with my recovery. If you're tired of being in pain from an injury, this is the place to go. Thanks, Rob and team

I ruptured my ACL in June and started seeing Charlie before and after surgery and have never looked back. The staff are all very friendly and Charlie's expertise and patience have been invaluable!

Charlie (Andreas Schall-Riaucour) is the best Physiotherapist that we've seen in Australia. And believe me we've seen so many in the country. He has an exceptional (almost uncanny) understanding of what's wrong, and knows very well on how to treat the condition. He saved my wife's (thrice-operated) knee, and I cannot thank him enough for that. The staff at the reception is also very polite and friendly here. You may need to wait for a few minutes from time to time, but it's well worth the exceptional service that will be offered here. I strongly recommend this Physiotherapy clinic.

After only a few treatments, Chris gave me the stretches, techniques and knowledge to be able to reintroduce running and high impact training. Super happy!

Awful service. Would not recommend it to anyone and never going back. Physio who treated me was extremely harsh with his treatment.
