Getting You “Back to Better”
Our “Back to Better” philosophy is an evidence-informed approach which is all about getting you back to better than you were before.
Standard treatment helps to get you back to your pre-injury or pre-pain state. Being pain free is great – but are you still at the same risk of re-injury?
At Pondera, our team of clinical professionals (including Physiotherapists, ESSA accredited Exercise Physiologists, Remedial Massage Therapists and our Rehabilitation & Performance studio instructors) work as a team on a coordinated, personalised plan designed to help you get “Back to Better”.
Our Physiotherapists conduct specific, thorough clinical examinations in an effort to not just make a diagnosis and treat your injury, but analyse your history, activities and whole-body function to make a structural and functional diagnosis. This identifies AND targets what’s not working as well as it should be, which may have contributed to your original injury and helps to inform how to reduce the likelihood of recurrence.
For us, pain or symptom-free is just the beginning of the journey to get you back to a better you!
What our clients say about us
“Pondera’s combination of staff and expertise, range of facilities and caring service make it my choice for healthcare and many others I have referred over 11 years.”Lisa W.
“I have some issues with my lower back, feet and my arm. I had a massage somewhere else but it didn’t work at all. My boss recommended Pondera, so I saw Jill for a massage and she is amazing. My body is now in so much relief. Thanks Jill!”Jenno J.
“As part of my membership with Pondera, I complete my individual exercise & Pilates program in the Studio at least twice a week. I find Steve and all the Studio staff really great as they monitor my progress and ensure I'm doing the exercises correctly. My flexibility & strength has improved remarkably in a short time and my elbow injury has not flared up again”Susan M.
"The whole experience attending Pondera exceeds expectation … from the easy onsite parking, helpful admin team through to the genuine care shown by the staff - you feel like it's the right place to be when you need help."John A.
