Physiotherapy in Essendon, Moonee Ponds & Ascot Vale
Getting recreational athletes back in the game
At Driving Fitness Physiotherapy we are committed to providing superior and modern physiotherapy services. We understand injuries and pain can be frustrating, we are here to help you make a safe return to what you love doing. We have fundamental knowledge and experience in sporting injuries as well as lower back pain, neck pain, knee pain, headaches and shoulder pain.
During your initial assessment, you will be placed through our unique 3 step examination process. First we use a verbal and physical assessment to find the underlying cause of your pain and create a plan to resolve it. Secondly, we utilise numerous hands on techniques designed to melt, loosen and unblock pain caused by injury. And thirdly, we walk you through a step by step, corrective exercise program specifically designed to reduce your pain for good.
If you are looking for something extra, we also provide a unique service like no other known as the Physiotherapy membership. This membership included 1 hands on session plus 1 injury rehabilitation class per week. This membership is ideal if you have been carrying an injury for longer than 3 months, ideal for the competitive or recreational athlete.
For your convenience we have consultation rooms in Essendon, Ascot Vale and Avondale Heights. We also have HICAPS facilities in our physiotherapy rooms to make it easy for you to claim your private health insurance rebates. We accept and treat all Workcover, Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA) cases. We also accept patients under enhanced primary care (EPC) Medicare schemes. The Medicare care plans can be organised at our physiotherapy rooms under the advice from our General Practitioner.

Agni – Back pain resolved after 8 months of pain
Cordell – No more shoulder pain
The Physiotherapists at Driving Fitness Physiotherapy at the Essendon clinic made my shoulder feel better than it has in years. That annoying click, that acute pain I thought I’d never get rid of – gone in 8 weeks flat. They used a lot of functional movement training specifically tailored to your situation. Within a couple of minutes my Physio already pin pointed the EXACT band of muscle that I’d hurt over a year ago. If you’re reading this and you’re still on the fence – just go, seriously. I knew after 1 session that I was in good hands, totally worth checking it out. My Physio, Mark, puts loads of effort into each session, honestly cannot thank him enough.
Our Promises to you:
We promise to reduce your pain significantly within 3 sessions or less or your money back guaranteed.
We promise to figure out what is causing your pain and to provide a clear explanation on how to resolve it so that it never returns.
We promise to give you ongoing support through your recovery to ensure you stay on track and make a full recovery. We want you to get back doing the things you love.
We promise to provide you with adequate, pain relieving, hands on treatment (when required). We don’t believe in using old fashioned Physiotherapy machines such as TENS and Ultrasound.
