Why is Fixio the place to go for Back or Neck Pain?

Fixio has Back Pain Experts – Titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists

The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) defines a Titled Physio as “highly qualified physiotherapist with expert knowledge and skills. They achieve and maintain exceptional standards of clinical experience and knowledge.”

To put it simply, your regular physiotherapist is a GP – a practitioner with general skills, knowledge and treatment plans. A Titled Physiotherapist is a specialist, with deep knowledge of physiotherapy, pain management, and more treatment options to choose from. Titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists have completed a four year undergraduate degree in physiotherapy, then go on to complete a two year Masters of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, making a substantial contribution to the field academically in their chosen area of research, before undergoing a minimum of two years full time clinical experience, focused on the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. That’s close to a decade of study and applied training right there. It is no wonder that less than five percent of physiotherapist reach this level of distinction.

So here at Fixio Sports Physio and Pain Solutions, our physiotherapists are mentored and led by Titled Physio expert in back pain, neck pain and unsolvable cases. Our physiotherapists have an advanced understanding of anatomy and biomechanics and have years of practical experience providing multi-pronged programs designed to combat a number of spinal conditions.

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.
Thank you Dan for helping solve my back pain. A true champion in providing wholistic care and extremely knowledgeable in his management plans.

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.

We take a holistic hands-on approach.

Very rarely is there “one thing” causing long-standing back or neck pain in an individual. Hence we take a deep dive in your initial appointment to see what else will be contributing to your symptoms so that we can address the whole issue, not just “do some exercises”. Don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of exercise to do, but we have to take a multifaceted approach. When we say hands-on, we don’t just mean that we are a manual therapy clinic. Yes, you will get the hands on expert treatment to get you moving again, but we take a very hands-on approach to tackling your pain and getting you pain solutions that you haven’t had before.

We are a spine-focused clinic

We are very experienced in seeing patients with spinal related pain and provide best treatment methods to improve the speed of your recovery. We go above and beyond to work closely with other healthcare practitioners you have including Sports physicians, pain specialists, psychologists and personal trainers.

This deep dive into your physical health allows Fixio Physios to design a bespoke rehabilitation program with short, medium and long term outcomes to ensure success and a pain free future.
