Our Process at MyPlace Physio Coolangatta

Simply put, there is no such thing as a cookie-cutter approach to healthcare! Your needs and goals are specific to you and we tailor our treatment methods and approach to match them. We have helped thousands of clients by applying a proven approach to your physio journey. See below for the MyPlace Physio Coolangatta approach:


Initial Assessment and Diagnosis

We listen to you, take your injury history and have an in-depth discussion about what’s going wrong. We then undertake a comprehensive physical examination and determine the key contributing factors to your presentation. We give you a clear diagnosis and help you understand what’s going on.


Develop a Personalised Treatment Plan and Start Treatment

We develop a customized treatment plan in conjunction with you and your goals. We then start addressing the ‘Why’ behind your pain and presentation. We treat through a range of modalities including manual therapy, exercise, massage, dry needling, mobilisation, and strengthening.


Set Up a Home Exercise Program with in-built Messaging Support

We set you up with a personalised home exercise program using our exercise software Physitrack. We provider ongoing messaging support so if you have questions, we are only ever a click away. We set goals with you and over time help you get pain-free and back doing what you love doing!

Jacob was hands down the best physio I have seen. Unfortunately travelling so only had 2 sessions with him but his knowledge and expertise were second to none.Jacob also recommended dry needling which I haven't done before but it made a noticeable difference with my movement range by the end of each session. Definitely a strange sensation but the results after 2 sessions alone far outweighed the slight discomfort.Whether you live in the area or travelling and need some assistance, go see Jacob, Merica and the Team at My Place!

Jake and his team are great. I have a few reoccurring injuries and Jake's treatments and follow up plans are helping me to be pain free. Always feel better after a session. Thanks Jake!

Amazing.I had two falls into my left knee, was having difficulty doing anything, and I was in a lot of pain.Jacob has been so good to work with, understanding the problems and working on fixing and strengthening muscles.I am now much stronger, I can walk around, up and down stairs and I'm back to taking the dog for a walk, all pain free.I've just moved from Physio to the Pilates sessions twice a week with Jacob. I don't like gym work so was hesitant about Pilates, however it's great and I'm enjoying the small group sessions.Thank you Jacob.

I found Jacob and the team to be really great. Great facilities and really professional and friendly staff. Jacob is pragmatic and incredibly thorough. What I really liked was that Jacob was very transparent with what I could (and couldn’t) expect. I never felt like he was trying to “oversell” me or try to get me to have more appointments than I needed. Jacob recommended me to see another sports doctor and combined with the treatment and Pilates I was doing at MyPlace I was soon pain free, back to running and, most importantly, able to continue with my rehab (unrelated to the issue I had with Jacob) in an effective way. I highly recommend Jacob and the MyPlace team!

Jacob is an excellent Physio. He has fixed my leg issue and now I've got better range of motion than I had when I was younger. Jacob is now helping fix my right shoulder which has been VERY tight and sore. It's great to see its getting better and better each time I see Jacob. I know at the end of my physio treatment that my right shoulder will probably become better than my left shoulder (just as my leg did). I'm extremely happy with my progress and cannot recommend Jacob highly enough.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I bring to my physio session?

To make things as efficient as possible bring the following to your appointment:

– Doctor/specialist referral and other relevant paperwork

– Copy of any scans/medical reports Ie. x-ray report

– Private health fund card (if relevant)

– Wear loose-fitting clothes where possible for easier assessment and treatment access


What about telehealth physio? How does it work?

Similar to face to face physio, via video-call we take a history, do a physical assessment and then come to an accurate diagnosis. We then teach you how to self-treat the contributing factors and educate you around what to do. We then set you up with a personalised home exercise program for you to do from home. Then , we give you all the support you need via in-app messaging support, so you can achieve your health goals faster.

Do you offer hydrotherapy?

Yes, we provide hydrotherapy services as part of our treatment options for certain conditions at MyPlace Physio Coolangatta.

How experienced are your physiotherapists?

Our physiotherapists, Jacob and Kate, have over 8-11 years of clinical physiotherapy experience each.

Can I claim private health fund rebates?

Yes – the vast majority of private health funds are now offering rebates for both in-person and online telehealth physiotherapy consults. For confirmation, please contact your private health fund provider or get in touch via our Contact Us page.

Does Telehealth physio actually work?

Yes! There is a large amount of evidence that has found that online physio consulting via telehealth delivers the same if not better results. Why is this you may ask? We believe it’s because the client, rather than the therapist, is empowered and at the centre of their rehab journey.

Our experienced male and female physiotherapists at MyPlace Physio provide exceptional quality physiotherapy services to people living in Tweed Heads and beyond, including treatment for back pain, neck pain, spinal physiotherapy, injury rehabilitation, post-operative rehabilitation, sports physiotherapy, dry needling, manual therapy, remedial massage, musculoskeletal conditions, shoulder pain, knee pain, hip pain, elbow pain, ankle pain, foot pain, vertigo and dizziness treatment, core and strength training, hydrotherapy, personalised exercise programs, and ongoing messaging support.

Do you provide post-operative rehabilitation?

Yes, we offer post-operative rehabilitation services at MyPlace Physio to help patients recover after surgery.
