Coral Coast Physiotherapy and Allied Health has a core purpose – to assist people in making achievable and positive changes to their day-to-day lives. No concern is too small and no barrier insurmountable when it comes to assisting patients with their goals.
Whether it be recovering from an injury or relieving pain through physiotherapy, enjoying movement through exercise physiology, improving communication for the young and mature with speech pathology, or improving quality of life and community access with occupational therapy; wherever their patient’s needs lie, Coral Coast Physiotherapy will meet them.
Physiotherapist and director Ben Heidenreich first opened the clinic as a one-man operation in 2012, growing into a company that now employs 25 staff, including 19 clinicians.
“Our clinic in Bargara has been growing for a number of years and we were getting asked by patients to open a clinic in Bundaberg,” Ben said.
“At the same time the demand for our occupational therapists’ services was also growing quickly, and the majority of those patients were in Bundaberg. So we started looking and found a great space, opening our second clinic in January this year.”
Both the Bargara and Bundaberg clinics offer a holistic multidisciplinary approach to treatment in a state-of-the-art allied health environment. Recent additions include complete pilates studios and rehabilitation gyms.
“In Bundaberg we offer physiotherapy services as well as being a base for our six occupational therapists and our speech pathologist,” Ben said.
“We have a number of staff who specialise in children’s physiotherapy and occupational therapy, as well as women’s or men’s health, so even though our team is growing we are still able to offer specialised healthcare, which is really important to us.
“We have the two locations and a multidisciplinary team so we can be there to help our patients with whatever support they need.”
