Welcome to Miami Physiotherapy
Miami Physiotherapy (Falcon) was established in June 2006 by Shelley Sloper. Shelley opened a second clinic – our Lakelands Physiotherapy clinic in 2017.
Shelley continues to direct the practices with a team of additional physiotherapists and a remedial massage therapists, ensuring we can offer more appointment options and guaranteeing same day appointments across both our locations. We are open from Monday to Thursday from 7am to 7pm, Friday 7am – 5pm and our Falcon clinic is open Saturday from 8am til 12pm.
We feel it is important that you understand your diagnosis (what the problem is), your prognosis (how long it will take to get better, and how much better) and are actively involved in your physiotherapy management to set and achieve your health goals. We will give you a treatment plan in writing so that you understand exactly what needs to done (by your therapist and yourself), how many treatments it is likely to take to reach your goal using the best treatment strategies that have been proven effective.
Fast effective treatment when and where you need it.
