Theraspace's Story

Theraspace Physiotherapy and Pilates was established 15 years ago in Watsonia, to treat patients in and around northern Melbourne. 

 

After years of working in the management side of physiotherapy, Angie realised that she wanted to get back to working directly with patients, so she started Theraspace. 

 

Angie is very focused on empowering you to take control of your own health journey, by providing you with home exercises to do in between sessions, and educating you about your condition and your body.  She can also work with you to change your habitual movement patterns, that may be hampering your recovery.

Angie offers you an integrative and seamless experience across the physiotherapy treatment sessions and Clinical Pilates classes.  Your exercise program is designed together with you for your particular circumstances and history, and it evolves as you progress through your treatment. 

So, no matter what your condition is, or your reason for coming, you will be listened to with empathy and care, you will be provided with an individualised exercise plan just for you, and you will receive the support you need every step of the way, wherever your health journey takes you.

 

Conditions Treated

Angie's comprehensive training, knowledge base and extensive experience allows her to formulate effective manual therapy and individualised safe Clinical Pilates programs, that can help a range of conditions, including:

  • Pre- and post-surgery hip, knee, shoulder and other joint rehabilitation;

  • Acute back pain and neck pain;

  • Arthritis;

  • Multiple Sclerosis;

  • Balance problems;
