At One Focus Physiotherapy we help busy professionals, athletes and everyone in between overcome injury and restore movement. We have a team of highly trained Physiotherapists with a special interest in the assessment and management of injuries and conditions.
We understand what it is like when you are in pain, restricted with movement or uncertain about how to return to normal activity. There is nothing more frustrating when your body doesn’t move like it should.
We begin your treatment by listening and understanding what’s happening with your body and how it affects your life. We empower you to take control of your own health and recovery, so you can move forward and tackle your next goal.
Our physiotherapists will utilise a number of evidence-based treatments to return you to optimal health and performance, which include:
At One Focus Physiotherapy, our highly trained Sports Physiotherapists have had significant experience in assessing, treating, and rehabilitating sporting injuries for professional athletes to the weekend warrior. Sports injuries require thorough assessment and examination to accurately diagnose your sporting injury. Based on this information, we will then advise you on how to manage your injury and provide a rehabilitation program, optimising recovery from your injury.
Sporting injuries fall into one of two categories: acute or chronic. Acute injuries usually occur from failure of a ligament/muscle or direct trauma, such as body contact with an opposition player. Chronic injuries occur when someone has exercised or played a sport for a long period of time and muscles/tendons/ligaments begin to breakdown. Chronic injuries can be more complicated to diagnose and treat due to the multifactorial nature.
Our physiotherapists will utilise a number of evidence-based treatments to return you to optimal health and performance including:
One Focus Physiotherapy offers Clinical Pilates for strengthening, flexibility and rehabilitation after injury. Pilates will improve your whole-body mobility by enhancing your posture, flexibility, muscle strength, control, balance and pelvic floor strengthening, accompanied with expert guidance, hands on feedback and correction.
Before you begin, you will undergo a detailed assessment by one of our physiotherapists. Based on this assessment, we will tailor an individualised program to address your injury, goals and needs. You will then have the choice from 1:1 or group sessions that blend reformer, equipment and mat based exercises to optimise your Clinical Pilates experience.

All of our highly trained Physiotherapists at One Focus Physiotherapy are skilled and experienced in dry needling, a form of treatment which has been clinically proven to reduce pain, reduce muscle spasms and decrease muscle tension.
It is important to note that Dry Needling differs from Acupuncture. Dry needling is based on western neuro-physiological and anatomical principals and should not be confused with Acupuncture – a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique.
Dry needling is a broad term used to differentiate “non-injection” needling from the practice of “injection needling”. Dry needling utilises a solid, sterile filament needle which are then inserted into what is known as the ‘trigger point’ of a muscle. These are hyperirritable spots within a taut band of skeletal muscle which often cause pain and referred symptoms. Dry Needling alleviates the symptoms of trigger points by relaxing surrounding muscle tissues, stimulating blood flow to the area and reducing pain nerve responses
Dry Needling is a useful treatment technique used for the following conditions
One Focus Physiotherapy work alongside leading Echuca, Bendigo, Shepperton and Melbourne Orthopaedic Surgeons and have a very good understanding of the surgical procedures that you have had and rehabilitation that is required for full recovery.
If you’re scheduled for an orthopaedic surgery, our pre-operative physiotherapy appointments come highly recommended. Individualised physiotherapy sessions prior to your surgery have been shown to improve overall patient outcomes post-surgery.
To assist patients for surgery, One Focus Physiotherapists provide individualised pre-operative sessions that:
GLA:D®, or Good Life with Arthritis: Denmark, is an education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms. This education and exercise program reflects the latest evidence in osteoarthritis (OA) research. The program includes 12 supervised exercise sessions over 6 weeks, and 2 education sessions.
GLA:D® Australia is a program for all individuals who experience any hip and/or knee osteoarthritis symptoms, regardless of severity. You may participate in the GLA:D® Australia program if you have a hip or knee joint problem that resulted in visiting a health care provider.
Osteoarthritis is the most common lifestyle disease in individuals 65 year of age and older, but can also affect individuals as young as 30 years of age. Current national and international clinical guidelines recommend patient education, exercise and weight loss as first line treatment for osteoarthritis. In Australia, treatment usually focuses on surgery and the GLA:D ® Australia program offers a safe alternative that may avoid the need for surgery.
If you are interested in partaking in the GLA:D® program, please contact our team to make an appointment today.
The Physiotherapists at One Focus Physiotherapy are here to assist individuals who have an acute or chronic injury. Injury management is crucial in an individual’s recovery, however our Physiotherapists understand the importance of implementing strategies to ensure your risk of injury or re-injury is reduced.
Our highly skilled Physiotherapists ensure that a thorough subjective and objective assessment is undertaken of an individual’s injury history and current level of function. We also aim to have a comprehensive understanding of your chosen sport or activity and its associated risks on injury. By combining these two particularly important aspects of assessment, One Focus Physiotherapy will be able to provide guidance through treatment, maintenance and prevention, which will ultimately decrease the risk of further injury.
Our physiotherapists will utilise a number of evidence-based treatments to assist in injury prevention which include:
One Focus Physiotherapy offers treatment sessions within the home. We understand that some clients may be unable to attend the clinic for their appointment or require the physiotherapist to assess their function within their home environment (transfers, mobility, steps and more).
At One Focus Physiotherapy, we are delighted and prepared to travel to your home and undertake a physiotherapy treatment session. We also work quite closely with a number of local Occupational Therapists and partake in joint sessions.
Our in-home physiotherapy sessions are ideal for the following conditions:
The highly skilled physiotherapists at One Focus Physiotherapy are extremely experienced in manual therapy techniques. We understand that certain injuries and conditions will require a combination of both manual therapy and exercise prescription in order to reduce pain, restore function and ultimately recover.
Manual therapy techniques used at One Focus Physiotherapy include:
One Focus Physiotherapy offers the chance for you to attend hydrotherapy/aquatic therapy sessions in a 1:1 or group-based environment. Hydrotherapy is the use of water for rehabilitation, therapy, relaxation and exercise.
Physiotherapists will use their diagnostic skills, exercise knowledge and treatment techniques with the properties of water to enhance your recovery and rehabilitation. The properties of water include the decreased effects of gravity, the effects of buoyancy and hydrostatic pressure. We will guide you through a tailored exercise program in a heated pool which will enhance your recovery. We aim to empower everyone to take control of their own rehabilitation by providing you with your own tailored program to complete in your own time, in addition to our Physiotherapist led hydrotherapy sessions.
Hydrotherapy has been clinically proven to reduce pain, improve aerobic fitness levels, improve balance and coordination, reduce risk of falling, increase muscular strength, accelerate recovery from surgery, improve walking technique and allow standing in those who are unable to weight-bear out of water.
Hydrotherapy programs are effective in treating a number of conditions including:
