Our Approach

We are aiming to create a New Normal level of physical capacity and health literacy in the Newcastle Community.

There is a big gap in the current standard practice of pain and injury rehabilitation and the level required to produce happy, healthy humans. This needs to close. So much of what is experienced in pain and injury is preventable, treatable and we believe people are more capable than they think or that they have been told.

You are a strong, robust and resilient human. You deserve the best treatment and rehab to make sure you get back to the things that make you, you. And stay there. Too many people suffer unnecessarily from bad advice and treatment. We seek to change this, and your outcomes, for the better. Forever.


A new level of level of function. A new normal amount of pain. A new normal quality of life.

A new normal, combined approach of physiotherapy and strength and conditioning to pain and injury rehabilitation, understanding and performance.


The more you know the better off you are. Lack of health literacy is a major risk factor for many health problems, and from a pain and injury perspective, it is a major reason problems last for longer than they need to. You need to understand what is going on, why and what you can do about.

Knowledge is power. Power over pain. Power improves Performance


The other fancy word for this is Capacity – can you do what you need to do for as long as you need to do it? Most of the time the answer is no. Most rehab falls short of developing enough capacity for you to do the things you want to do well. You don’t need to be an athlete to be strong. Being strong is within the grasp of every human and is a great attribute to have. It keeps you away from us and doing the things you love long into the future.


What do you need to get back to?


What does missing out on it mean to you?

These are the real questions. Everyone wants less pain, more ability, but what is it we’re aiming for? What are the things in your life that you value that you don’t want to miss out on. You decide what we are aiming for and why that is important. We help you get there.


It is, always should be, and while ever you work with us, yours. Your pain, your injury, your rehab, your life. You are in control of what happens at all times.

You are driving the bus. You set the destination, we help you navigate. We will always advocate for the best possible version, and outline the requirements for a durable return to activity, but in the end the choice is yours.

Our type of rehab has a finish line. We do not wish, nor need, to see you forever. Set the goal, trust the process, do the work, live your life.
