Why US

Our Experience Counts

Thornleigh Physiotherapy was established 32 years ago by Alan Carrington and Janelle Ward Physiotherapists. The practice offers a collaborative and multi modal approach with the benefit of our combined experience. This multi modal approach may help to expedite a successful outcome and achieve satisfaction with longer term results. For example, Alan uses a specialist technique for the treatment of cervicogenic headaches ( headaches radiating from the neck). Although the treatment can eliminate or reduce headaches the underlying causes maybe multi factorial. Investigation into work and office ergonomics, types of glasses, sleeping postures etc, etc, may help to address causes and avoid ongoing exacerbation.

Over the past 32 years we have developed a network with other health professionals including General Practitioners, Orthopaedic Surgeons, Radiologists , Podiatrists, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists. When needed this network may facilitate appropriate referral or redirection to other necessary therapy services.

Thornleigh Physiotherapy, located on Duffy Avenue, has ample side street and two off street parking spaces within 10 metres of the practice entrance. Easy accessibility for the disabled, older patients and general public is an important feature of the practice location.
