Hunter Physio will treat the cause of your pain, not just the symptoms – to get you back to work & sport as quickly as possible.
We’ve Got A Reputation!
At Hunter Physiotherapy, our physios believe in addressing the cause of your pain, not just treating the symptoms, giving us a reputation as one of the best physiotherapists in Newcastle.

Hunter Physiotherapy is highly accessible to Novocastrians, centrally located in Newcastle at The Nineways, Broadmeadow.
What to Expect When You Attend Hunter Physiotherapy
The staff at Hunter Physio understand that you need to get back to sport and work as quickly as possible following injury; therefore provides appropriate treatment and advice in the acute phase of injury; plus create an appropriate, specific rehabilitation program that allows you a trouble free return to normal life.
Initial treatment generally involves “hands-on” techniques to reduce swelling, pain or stiffness, allowing you to move better by removing strain from the overloaded part of your body. You will then be guided through appropriate exercises designed to improve your strength, flexibility and control; facilitating a full return to sport.
An appropriate rehabilitation program should be specific to your activity and this requires a physiotherapist who understands the elements of your sport, dancing or other activity that may lead to injuries, and how best to prevent them.
Our goal is to give you the best physio outcome for your particular injury.
What We Do
We are a “hands-on” Newcastle physiotherapy practice, who combine muscle activation, strengthening, core, balance, proprioception and stretching exercises to complement all of our manual mobilisation, massage, manipulation and dry needling treatments. We believe this keeps you performing at your peak and importantly, assists in avoiding re-injury.
Our aim is to provide a professional, personal service with excellence in assessment and treatment of your injury, whilst keeping you involved in the treatment plan and decision making for managing your injury.
