Friendlies Physiotherapy & Allied Health

At Friendlies Physiotherapy & Allied Health, you can see an occupational therapist, physiotherapist or podiatrist, all in one place. These health professionals make up our qualified and experienced Allied Health team.

Our Allied Health team can see patients for assessment as well as treatment and can make a recommendation for equipment or home modifications to support your individual needs.

In addition, we are an NDIS Early Childhood Approach (previously called ECEI) provider for children aged 0-6 who have a developmental delay or disability. We can help families to achieve better long-term outcomes, regardless of diagnosis.
