About Frontier Physio

Our Vision

At Frontier Physiotherapy, we endeavour to provide the highest quality services, in an accessible way to our community. We believe that proper care should be available to everyone.

Our Mission

As primary healthcare professionals, we are committed to helping our clients resume their lifelong pursuit of health, fitness, and well-being.

Evidence Based Practice

When it comes to knowing what to do, we pride ourselves on being the best. Our therapists are specialists in diagnosing and managing your injuries. We focus on finding the source of your pain and working together towards your recovery.

Patient Centered Care

We work with you to create a roadmap for your recovery. We understand that everyone’s recovery is different. That’s why we choose a patient centered approach. We aim to provide the best possible treatment, but in a way that is specific and appropriate for you.

Our History

Frontier Physiotherapy began operations in 2021 at our practice location within the Silky Oaks facility. We started small with a single practitioner, Michael. 2021 was a year of growth which saw Michael establish a strong relationship with the Silky Oaks Medical Centre. We were proud to begin working with Snap Fitness at Manly West in providing physiotherapy services to their members and sharing access to their fully equiped commercial gym for use in our rehabilitation of patients. We also continued our support of the Wynnum Wolves FC over 45’s teams providing sporting coverage and physiotherapy services to their teams competing at the annual Supa Oldies football tournament in Buderim.

Our practice has continued to expand in all areas and we have had the fantastic opportunity to partner with the Bayside FC to provide physiotherapy coverage to the FQPL2 mens team as well as welcoming our second physiotherapist, Clare.

New Superclinic Opening April 2024.

Due to the resounding success of our Manly West practice, Frontier Physio has embarked on the development of its new state-of-the-art Superclinic, located in the heart of Thornlands. With a continued focus on exceptional care, innovative treatments, and evidence-based practice, the dedicated team at the new Thornlands Superclinic aims to replicate the high standards of service that define Frontier Physiotherapy. This expansion not only underscores Frontier Physio’s commitment to delivering top-notch physiotherapy services but also represents a positive step towards enhancing the accessibility of high-quality healthcare within the Thornlands suburb. 

With the aim of delivering a premier hub for comprehensive health and fitness solutions. Frontiers’ Superclinic boasts a range of cutting-edge equipment, including specialized balance tools, platies reformers, trapeze tables, and a comprehensive array of gym equipment catering to any and all fitness levels.
