Barefoot Physiotherapy takes a holistic approach to each individual who walks through the door. This means that no matter where your pain is located, or how your pain began, Barefoot Physio will follow a holistic and thorough approach to determining your treatment. The direction of treatment is based off your goals, how you test in each session, and by using our systematic process of finding the underlying cause of your pain or restriction.
Our physiotherapy service begins with laying out the main reason that a client has come to us. Your goals and day to day activities are important to us and we will tailor your treatment to work towards that. We work on neural irritation, meaning how your nerves and surrounding tissues are moving, through neural tissue management. We then problem solve to determine the underlying cause of where and why your pain has been building up or suddenly presented. This involves an entire full body assessment, jaw muscles down to big toe movement. We work with you to determine the areas that need more motor control, more strength or more mobility. To fully understand the accumulation in the body, we can discuss other aspects like sleep, nutrition or mindset. We have a great referral network to help build a support team around you. Our treatment empowers you to have self-management strategies and continue to build on these foundations with regular check ins down the track.
Part of Your Team
We believe in a team approach to delivering the best treatment for each person. Collaboration with other healthcare professionals is essential to understanding and providing well-rounded client care. Whether this includes your massage therapist, your partner or housemate, your surgeon or GP, we’ll stay in communication and keep them updated to your treatment plan. With our strong referral network of trusted health professionals, we can confidently refer you in the direction you need. While our clinic provides holistic musculoskeletal physiotherapy, we’re happy to be an integral part in your current team or help to build a support team around you. We can assist in finding health professionals suitable for your care, and all communication will be carried out with sensitivity to gender pronouns, names and language used.
The importance of Physiotherapy
Just like a car that we take to the mechanic to problem solve a weird noise, or to get it tuned up every few months, our body can be seen in the same way. The stresses and demands that we ask of our body’s everyday is enough to need that check in.
Barefoot Physiotherapy provides physio services for:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Wrist, hand and elbow pain
- Shoulder and rotator cuff injuries
- Shoulder impingement
- Foot, ankle and knee pain
- Hip pain and impingement

- Migraines and headaches
- Nerve pain
- Balance and falls prevention
- Post-operative orthopedic rehabilitation
We also provide services for the types of pain that are not as easily labelled as those above. The body is a complex unit of integrated systems and because of that, sometimes pain is not so easily defined or understood. We can use our holistic and thorough approach if you are struggling with a pain that developed with no main cause, have a pain that is not easily described to someone or have multiple areas of pain that may or may not be linked. We can work with those of you who may not even have pain but feel a tightness, restriction or limitation in your movement.
Enhance Your Performance
If you are looking to enhance your performance at a sport, or the gym, we can problem solve as to what may be holding you back. Our physio’s all have a background in sport, specifically dance, volleyball, athletics and soccer, giving us a wide range of understanding of common sporting injuries.
Your pain is individual to you, and we treat it as such. No other person has experienced the same pain, so our treatment aims to provide targeted and specific treatment that fulfils your goals.
