Anchorage Drive Physiotherapy Centre is located inside Mindarie Keys Medical Centre, on Anchorage Drive, minutes from Mindarie Marina.
Our physiotherapists are experts at early diagnosis and treatment of sporting injuries; back and neck pain, strains and stiffness; work-related injuries and rehabilition; motor-vehicle injuries; chronic conditons (such as arthritis, chronic back pain etc); and muscle and joint pain and stiffness.
We are highly skilled with manual techniques, and tailor treatment, exercise and advice to your specific needs and goals.
Methods of treatment include:
- Joint mobilisation and manipulation
- Myofascial release (muscle release)
- Electrotherapy and ultrasound

Preventative treatment is as important as post injury care. Our physiotherapists are highly qualified in exercise prescription. They can assist in strength and conditioning training, and preparation for sporting events and reduce the incidence of injury.
