NorthHab founders Chris and Jen established the company in Weipa, North Queensland. Initially, NorthHab helped to reduce workplace injuries on behalf of Rio Tinto at their Weipa minesite, as well as servicing Queensland Health in Weipa and surrounding Cape York communities.
In 2004, NorthHab Physio & Fitness opened in South-East Queensland, bringing with us our unique approach to injury management. At NorthHab we believe health care is more than a service and that real results are foundered on a patient's understanding of their condition. We live by the philosophy of: 'Helping People Help Themselves'.
OUR GOLDEN RULES
You will leave with more information than when you arrive.
NorthHab focuses on educating clients about their condition. Excellent care should be paired with the right aids for self-driven, long-term recovery.
Your practitioner will use a 'hands on' approach.
Manual therapy has an important role in the rehabilitation process, by restoring normal movement patterns and helping to manage pain levels.
You will be given strategies to implement at home, assisting with self-management.
Quality healthcare doesn't stay at the clinic; we invest in patient education and intuitive self-management plans guided by our practitioners.
