Jaeme and Dan are top-notch physios! Their expertise and approachability made my experience exceptionally positive. They efficiently addressed my years-long neck and back pain with personalized care and clear guidance. The office facility is also impressively equipped. Highly recommend them for effective treatment in a comfortable setting.

Have just started with Dan following a nasty fall and fracture to shoulder. Feel very positive, Dan has explained every process along the way and I feel very comfortable with my treatment plan. The other members of the team are super friendly and always acknowledge me on arrival and make me feel welcome

Ruptured Achilles (99%) - non surgical approach. Dom and the team were great. 6 months in and the leg is as good as the other. Could not recommend Dom more highly.

I started seeing Hayden for a lower back injury with an inflamed disk (Things you do in the gym!!!). After only 8 weeks and some great planning by Hayden and the team I went from not being able to move to being back in the gym and back to doing what I love! I am lifting more now than I was before my injury and generally feeling great. The attention to detail and knowledge the team have is amazing and I could not be happier with the results. For me it has not just been a fix of my back but a foundational learning experience, teaching me how to move, lift and self heal when I need to. Hands down, these guys are THE BEST Physio team on the Northern Beaches!

Hayden did a great job fixing my back. I would highly recommend seeing him. I had severe lower back pain to the point where I was considering surgery. Hayden guided me through the ups and downs, with honesty and empathy, and applying the best up-to-date methods my back made a full recovery.

Been seeing Hayden for 6 months now and he’s guided me to fixing lower back and knee problems I’ve been having for years. He set out a program and what it would cost in the first consultation and has followed through, providing great knowledge and guidance along the way.

Combining Technology with Expertise

We stride, I mean, strive for long-term running success in all of our patients.  

The aspects of your body and your run that we will take a deep dive into are: 

  • Your mobility and flexibility 
  • Your muscle strength and endurance 
  • Your training load (and whether it’s appropriate for your outcomes) 
  • Footwear advice 
  • Whole body biomechanics 
  • Running biomechanics 

Once the factors that may be influencing your injury have been identified, a plan can be made to get you running faster as soon as possible! 

Most running injuries don’t require you to stop running (and we rarely say that.. And if we do we are hating it as much as you are!). The trick is mostly about modifying those aspects of your run that we can. 

READY TO GET BACK TO YOUR BEST?

Book an appointment online in under 60 seconds.

At Fixio we are utilising advanced technology to accurately assess the biomechanics that an individual uses while running. Our expert physio treatment consists of soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, dry needling, shockwave and obviously, re-assessing your running biomechanics and ensuring you are improving! A specific individualised Recovery Plan of targeted strength and mobility exercises that are backed by science will be given to you to improve performance and reduce injury risk. 

We look forward to bumping into you on a run or seeing you in the clinic soon!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We recommend booking your appointments with either Jaeme or Hayden.

Absolutely not! We regularly complete running assessments on individuals who are looking to prevent their next injury. If you are wanting to have a run assessment done to help in your performance and prevent injury, we are excited to meet you!

We have a treadmill and biomechanics capture software on site at our Dee Why clinic. Ensure that you bring all and any shoes that you have been running in recently and wear appropriate clothing to be on the treadmill at your normal running pace for 5+ minutes.

Book for a New Patient 1 Hour Initial Appointment and write in the “notes” section that you would like a run assessment. In our New Patient Form you will have the opportunity to tell us in detail about your running and injury history. The run assessment may or may not happen in the first appointment depending on what the physiotherapist deems is necessary at the time. It is quite common to spend 2-3 weeks settling your symptoms before we do a run assessment (as your gait and biomechanics change with pain!).
