Our approach to Physio

Keep your whole body smiling

“Our team of physios are highly-qualified musculoskeletal experts. We will not only look at your symptoms and treat the local problem, we will look at EVERYTHING affecting you to get you back to being yourself ASAP.

The most valuable thing I have learnt in my experience as a physio is to listen to my patients and help them achieve what is most important to them.”

The EBR Physio Story

Pam Marshall started the practice back in 1963 in the back room of her house with a newborn baby at her home in East Bentleigh. Some of the extended families of those early patients continue to see us today. Sadly Pam died in 2004 after a long illness.

We continue to expand and grow in response to our patients’ needs. We treat sports and spinal injuries, as well as many other conditions.  We are proud to offer quality physiotherapy services to the community.
