Hawthorn Physiotherapy Clinic has been committed to providing quality physiotherapy services to Hawthorn and surrounding communities since 1974. Today we are a multi-disciplinary clinic offering expert Physiotherapy, Clinical Pilates, pre and post rehab options to treat your pain and to prevent re-occurrence. We cater for all sports, musculoskeletal, and spinal injuries both acute and chronic as well as offering a unique focus on post-operative rehabilitation through our continued work with surgeons at St Vincent’s Private Hospital, Kew.
As we are an essential health service, Hawthorn Physio Clinic is open as per usual for both Physiotherapy and Pilates consultations. In light of the recent state government announcements we would like to reassure patients that Hawthorn Physiotherapy Clinic will continue to service the community in compliance with government regulations and advanced sanitization measures. Regarding social distancing, we are adjusting the clinic space and operations to ensure a safe environment is upheld.
Our clinic space remains open for use with appropriate safety measures taken in accordance to state government advice. For those of you that are stuck at home, we are also offering an online service called Telehealth. Health insurers are now covering Telehealth appointments, making it cheaper than an out of pocket fee. It is very simple to set up, so please call our reception for more information on how to set up an appointment.
There are a variety of ways you can connect with us at this time, including:
