Bertie’s Philosophy

Bertie enjoys working with a range of patients, from the young athlete to the older adult. He uses a combination of patient education, exercise therapy, soft tissues therapy, dry needling and joint mobilisations. At the core of his practice, he aims to educate you on your condition and to work with you in stages to help you to achieve your treatment goals.
