At Sports and Orthopaedic Physio in Palm Beach we specialise in providing quality physiotherapy for your sports related injuries and post surgical rehabilitation. Our experienced physiotherapists will take the time to make an accurate diagnosis, explain the diagnosis, provide a hands on treatment and exercise prescription to help you stay on track to overcome your pain or injury.

This can accelerate the time frames for getting a specialist opinion and allows a team based approach to give you the best care possible.

We are the only physiotherapy practice in Palm Beach to have a CPM Machine to assist in stretching stiff knees to gain more range and improve function.


Relax on the bed as the machine uses continual passive range of motion to slowly flex and extend your knee for half an hour. This can be an important tool in improving range of motion post surgery.
