Our Golden Rules
Information might not be the cure, but it is an important first step in the treatment process. NorthHab focuses on educating clients about their condition as per our guiding principle: 'helping people help themselves'. Excellent care should be paired with the right aids for self-driven, long-term recovery.
NorthHab believe manual therapy has an important role in the rehabilitation process, by restoring normal movement patterns and helping to manage pain levels. Electrotherapy may be used as an adjunct to your care but will never be the only treatment.
Quality healthcare doesn't stay at the clinic; at NorthHab we invest in patient education and intuitive self management plans guided by our practitioners. We believe that success is determined by the meeting of excellent in-clinic care and at-home condition management,
Our Story, Our Philosophy
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'.
