What People Say About
I have seen my fair share of physiotherapists and even chiropractors and I haven’t ever really received much relief long or short term from any of them. Ocean View Physiotherapy came highly recommended from my mum. But her knowing my trepidation from past experiences, she booked me an appointment despite it, so confident Russell could help me, she locked me in to go. I’ll add, I’m 25 years old and my mum has not booked me any kind of appointment since I was 17, so I knew she was serious. Reminding myself that mothers know best, I went to appointment and I am so glad I did! Not only has Russell increased my quality of life and I have had a drastic reduction in my chronic pain. I’m now back at the gym and I have a lot more energy – I have even been able to reduce my pain meds for the first time in years. Russell supported me and helped me to gain proper form and strength. He also shows me alternative exercises to do tailored to my issues. I now feel more comfortable working out knowing that what I’m doing is safe for me. I highly recommend Russell and his team to anyone who’s experiencing any type of musculoskeletal pain or discomfort. The team at Ocean View are beyond accommodating and understanding. Russell is a kind, patient practitioner who provides a high standard of care, listening to me and working to treat the cause not just the symptoms. The team at Ocean View, especially Russell have provided so much support in helping me to reach my goals and I couldn’t be happier with the care I receive from everyone at Ocean View Physiotherapy.
When faced with major metalwork reconstruction of my lower limb, due to a triple Trimalleolar fracture/& dislocation, I knew that Russell Wright of Ocean View Physiotherapy was the best Physiotherapist available to professionally get my mobility back as soon as possible. Overwhelmed with the poor advice from hospital to just remove my Cam Boot and start walking, after having no weight bearing for several weeks, deteriorated muscle tone, and weakness, I immediately made an appointment with Russell Wright. Through regular exercise, massage and thorough Physio sessions and advice from Russell, I was out of a wheelchair in no time, had next to no time using crutches, and required no progression from crutches to a walking stick to aid my balance and mobility. Russell is the reason I feel positive about getting back to my normal activities. Having had such freedom with mobility previously to create the Terrigal Skillion and Gosford ANZAC poppy art installations, and then faced with limited and restricted movement was overwhelming. Russell took time out to show me fracture scans, to explain my situation, and provided encouragement that things will improve with a dedicated approach. If you want high level care, an extraordinary level of qualified expertise and knowledge from a genuinely kind and understanding Physiotherapy team, then Ocean View Physiotherapy is the place you can have confidence. They really do have your best interests at the forefront of their service. Rarely do I take the time to write a business review, though my fast improvement and recovery with Russell Wright as my Physiotherapist deserves recognition. Thanks for your care, professionalism and commitment. Thanks to the wonderful staff behind the front desk too. Sincerely, Merril Jackson
I took my 10 year old daughter who is a dancer experiencing problems with her feet. Russell was amazing he was so good with her and explained everything to not only me but to her so she could understand. He was so patient and took the time to figure out a plan to help her with her injury. Highly recommend such professional and caring services. Thank you so much for easing my mind and fixing her problems, we went with one and he found another.. Thank you so much will be recommending Russell to anyone who may need treatment.
I was recently hit by a car door & came off my bike – I rang ocean view physio following a recommendation. The receptionist was great & squeezed me into an appointment the day I rang. Russell spent time in assessing my injury & identified other pre-injury patterns contributing to my pain. Russell helped me to feel at ease by confirming that I hadn’t done any serious damage and the exercises he gave me have helped to improve my long-term pain. I’m feeling loads better already!
Rebecca is currently treating me for plantar fasciosis (aka plantar fasciitis), a condition which I have suffered with for over 8 years! I have tried everything in the past, from store bought and custom orthotics, special shoes, rolling my foot on an ice bottle etc. The only thing I hadn’t tried was seeking help from a qualified physiotherapist. Why didn’t I do this sooner?!
Within one week of seeing Rebecca, I have stopped limping. Rebecca has shown me exercises and stretches I can do at home to help. She is helping me increase the load strength of my foot as well as addressing other areas out of balance. Dry needling has also been a new experience! We are working towards being able to do yoga, Pilates and ballet barre once again soon. As well as have a pain free work day. Thanks again Rebecca.
I’ve now seen Russell over the past few years each time I need support or guidance with an injury. (he came recommended to me by a friend) I continue not only to use but also to refer Ocean View Physio….their attention to detail and professional, care driven approach to better health is extremely reassuring. It is evident that the goal is to see people in good health participating happily in the activities they love.
Outstanding! I cannot praise the team here enough. I had a motorcycle accident that damaged my foot so badly they almost amputated. This was 2 years ago. I was told I would never walk again properly ie. without a limp, pain etc.
Kirrily was outstanding. She was caring and professional making my visits always a pleasure but most importantly she knows her craft. Kirrily helped me with clear goals, needling, Physio and exercises that have resulted in me waking properly. No limp and no pain! Not only did she help me walk properly I can actually jog again! During my foot Physio she also helped me get me knees back in shape as they had become troublesome after years of jogging.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!
You have helped me back to a normal life and I am eternally appreciative and grateful.
After completing internationally in triathlons with an achilles injury for more than 5 years, I finally went to Ocean View Physio for their speciality in treating runners with foot and ankle problems. I had previously been told to stop running and had tried many different band aid solutions from orthotics to suggestions of cortisone shots without resolution. Then I saw Russell who has been the most thorough physio I have ever been to. He started with a video analysis of my running style, designed an individual strengthening program for my achilles and worked on other body parts to get me moving more efficiently in my training. Since seeing Russell I have won the world ITU triathlon age championships and podium finished at the Ironman 70.3 world age championships. I now go to Ocean View Physiotherapy for all of my injuries as I trust that they will always do their very best to resolve it while I continue with my training.
I can not recommend the team at Ocean View Physiotherapy highly enough. The physiotherapists treat holistically and ensure that they are aligned with your goals, helping you achieve them. Russell and Rebecca have treated me for multiple conditions over the years and have always achieved great results in short time frames, even from previously chronic conditions. You are always made to feel welcome from all members of the team.
Well there isn’t much more that can be said other than a fantastic team. Russell, Rosie and the receptionists are friendly, experienced and what gets me through my working day. With my work hours they can accommodate and will go over and beyond to try and please all clients. I have been having trouble with my body for sometime now and without the expertise and knowledge of all involved I would be in a lot of pain. My Dr recommended me to oceanview physio and for that I’m very grateful.
I’ve been to this practice a number of times this year. On each occasion I was impressed by the convenient location, the friendliness of the staff (both reception and the Physiotherapists) and their punctuality. The knowledge of the staff and their attentiveness to my problems made me feel reassured I was in good hands. And their results should speak for themselves – I’m back running and swimming feeling better than ever.
I would highly recommend Russell from Ocean View Physiotherapy. Russell not only helped the pain in my foot but he also fixed a problem I had been having with my hip as well. Russell looks at your whole body including how you walk to find out the cause of the problem. I have exercises to strengthen my foot and I am almost pain free now and I am sure in time I will be pain free. Even the ladies at the reception are friendly and make you feel welcome. Fantastic customer.
Have seen both Russell and Rebecca, and had massages with Rosie. All are professional, experienced and importantly take the time to work out the issues and provide treatment to relieve immediate symptoms. Saw them for pregnancy and postpartum related pelvic instability/pain, and was impressed with their approach and knowledge of these conditions compared with other physiotherapists I had consulted. Rosie’s pregnancy massages are second to none! Would highly recommend this practice.
