Located in the state of the art community hub GESAC (Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre), My Physio GESAC (incorporating GESAC Sports Medicine), is a team of highly qualified and experienced therapists dedicated to excellence in evidence-based service delivery. We are excited about the wide range of services that we offer, including:
Musculoskeletal and Sport Injury Management
We have a team of expert physiotherapists headed by Warrick Pearson (Director, My Physio Pty Ltd), who provide high quality care to the general and sporting public. We listen, and seek to develop individualised treatment plans that focus on getting optimal results for each person we work with.
We are focused on excellent communication and where necessary will work closely with your Doctor, Surgeon, coach or personal trainer to ensure co-ordinated care is provided.
We have a home visit service that provides care to post-operative and post-hospitalised clients, and those who are unable to get to our clinic. We service the South Eastern Suburbs from Malvern to Frankston. We partner through Rehability, Southern Health and other public and private health service agencies. This excellent service is available to private clients as well.
Water is a supportive, relatively unloaded environment, that is ideal for training in core stabilisation, spinal and orthopaedic rehabilitation following injury or surgery, as well as for strength and flexibility training for arthritis sufferers.
The new hydrotherapy pool at GESAC is a massive 200sqm, and boasts a state of the art UV chlorination system. It has ramp and hoist access. The pool runs at 34 degrees – perfect for aquatic exercise.
BOUNCE back ®
We are one of only two agents delivering the BOUNCE back® exercise program in Victoria (40 agents across Aus and NZ). BOUNCE back® classes typically consist of an 8 week series of one hour classes, with specific exercises using balls and exercise bands, to progressively improve your spinal and core strength, balance and co-ordination. Each week participants receive an illustrated a handout of home exercises to consolidate the exercises taught in class. The classes are highly specialised, physiotherapist delivered and tailored to each individual.
Research to date on BOUNCE back® participants shows significant improvements in acute and recurrent low back populations. The program is designed for anyone, from back pain sufferers to post surgical patients and aven the elite athlete or manual worker
Our small group and individual clinical Pilates sessions utilise the reformer apparatus. Our Pilates trained physiotherapists will progress you through an individualised program that focuses on dynamic core stability training, supportive and controlled strength training. Clinical Pilates is graded to suit people of any ability. It is ideal to assist in the management of back, hip and pelvic pain as well as lower limb injuries (including sporting and dance injuries).

Our massage services are headed by Donna Callela, who has many years experience in private practice, as well as sporting event coverage, including the Australian Open women’s and international cycling events. Our massage services qualify for a rebate through most Health Fund extras programs.
