New home for phys­io­ther­apy

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By SO­PHIE CLAPIN

ROOF re­pairs at Lords re­cre­ation cen­tre have not damp­ened the spir­its of Ac­cent Phys­io­ther­apy.

The prac­tice had to re­lo­cate to West Leed­erville af­ter the City of Su­bi­aco closed Lords fol­low­ing the dis­cov­ery of as­bestos fi­bres in the build­ing. Phys­io­ther­a­pist and ex­er­cise phys­i­ol­o­gist Mathew Mont­gomery said for a small busi­ness, some­thing like this had the po­ten­tial to be crip­pling.

“Of course our pri­mary con­cern is always for the health and well­be­ing of our pa­tients but the clo­sure was com­pletely un­ex­pected and a right pain in the neck,” Mr Mont­gomery said.

“With the help from the City of Su­bi­aco we’ve found an ex­cep­tional new space.”

The new premises con­sist of pri­vate con­sult­ing rooms and a sep­a­rate Pi­lates and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion area.

“As well as im­prov­ing our phys­i­cal space, we’ve up­dated our on­line pres­ence too by over­haul­ing our web­site to in­clude a new on­line book­ing sys­tem,” he said.

“The last few months have cer­tainly seen a few aches and pains here and there, but thanks to the sup­port of the com­mu­nity, our clients and the City of Su­bi­aco, we’ve man­aged to get back to be­ing fight­ing fit.”
