Pondera is Latin for ‘equilibrium’, which by definition is a state of balance. We were established in 2006 with the aim of going beyond just treating pain and injury. Here at Pondera, we love seeing people perform at their best.
Our modern Physiotherapy, Remedial Massage, Rehabilitation gym and Clinical Pilates studio is easily accessible in West End, Brisbane with ample free onsite parking and lift access right to our door.
Pondera is privately operated, caring for people from all walks of life, recreational to elite athletes, amateur and professional performing artists along with clients with general and work related injuries.

Pondera’s Physiotherapists are available for early morning, daytime and late afternoon/evening appointments Monday to Saturday. Our Clinical Pilates studio is open from 6am to 8pm Monday to Thursday, 6am to 12pm Friday and Saturday 8am to 2pm.
We understand you may need to cancel your appointment at short notice and we appreciate prior notice to enable us to offer the time to another client. If you do not attend an appointment without notice a cancellation fee will be incurred. We prefer at least 24 hours notice is required to cancel and reschedule an appointment.
What to bring?
Our Physiotherapists conduct thorough musculoskeletal assessments which normally involve an analysis of whole body posture and movement. Even if you are attending for a neck, shoulder or knee concern, you should will probably be asked to remove superficial clothing. Please wear or bring suitable undergarments, shorts and a T-shirt to enable our clinicians to adequately assist you. Please bring with you all relevant X-rays, scans, etc to your physiotherapy appointment if your GP or specialist hasn’t already sent them to us. Non-restrictive, comfortable exercise clothing is suitable for studio sessions and if you wish, Pilates grip socks are available to purchase at reception. We also have filtered water available in the studio for clients.

Please aim to arrive at least 10 minutes before your initial appointment to allow time for necessary paperwork and introduction to Pondera. You can find us by car, foot or public transport by referring to our contact us page. There is ample parking available under the building with the driveway directly adjacent to Harcourt’s Real Estate (not at the Night Owl).
