What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a branch of healthcare focused on helping individuals recover from pain or dysfunction caused by a musculoskeletal injury. This means any issues caused by muscle, joint or nerve problems. From desk workers and the sedentary, to professional athletes requiring a high level of conditioning, physiotherapy is beneficial for all ages and levels of fitness.

To our Valued Clients

Your health and wellbeing is our priority. In light of the escalated measures to contain COVID-19, it is with a heavy but hopeful heart I have made the decision to temporarily close the studio effective 5pm Wednesday, 25 March 2020.

In the 30+ years Collins Place Physio and The Alignment Studio have been offering health support to the people of Melbourne, we have never had to close our doors. However, I feel I have a duty of care to both my staff and everyone in our community.

I will be closely following the updates from the Federal and State Governments and will communicate as soon as we are able to reopen.

During the closure, should you have any questions relating to your current treatment plan, you can contact your treating practitioner via email. All patients are also welcome to contact me directly at physiopete@thealignmentstudio.com.au

Thank you for your support of The Alignment Studio. Our patients and clients make The Alignment Studio a great place to work and the whole team looks forward to welcoming you back into the studio soon.

I would like to wish you and your loved ones strength, courage and most of all good health as we go through this challenging time together.

Warm regards,

Pete Hunt
