Reach Your Goals.

PHYSIOTHERAPY and the NDIS

Here at Breathe, our mission is to support people with a disability to move better, build strength, play sports and get around more independently.

If you have a disability, physiotherapy can support you to participate in physical activities that you’re interested in, like moving more easily around the home or participating in your dream sport.

Our physiotherapists can help you overcome or manage mobility challenges through a variety of treatment techniques such as joint mobilisation, soft tissue work, western acupuncture, dry needling and myofascial release.​

The support that we provide is tailored to your goals, personal circumstances and existing support network.

Our passion and special interest is to work closely with amputee clients who are now participating in Para Ice Hockey QueenslandWheelchair Basketball Queensland and South East Queensland Wheelchair Rugby League.

HYDROTHERAPY CAN HELP IF YOU HAVE A DISABILITY

Hydrotherapy is a form of therapeutic exercise conducted in the pool under the supervision of a physiotherapist. By using the water’s buoyancy, you can complete pain-free movements that can assist in restoring your function and range of movement.

Our approach to hydrotherapy means exercises are tailored to improve your mobility, movement skills, muscle strength, flexibility and fitness to help you achieve your movement-related goals.
