Find the cause of your pain to give you long-lasting relief

Some physiotherapists only treat a problem in one way. They deal with your pain but don't try anything different to tackle the reasons behind your discomfort or injury. Because of this, you may have to go to them again and again for further relief or try loads of different things.

But here at MGS Physio, we have extensive experience and use a variety of treatments. With our team of experienced Physiotherapists, we look at the whole body to discover the genuine cause of your injury or pain. We'll produce a plan featuring everything your body needs to heal, like flexibility and strengthening exercise, pilates, or anything else you need to become fighting fit again. We will examine the bigger picture to deduce your body's unique needs so you can go about your daily activities pain-free. Learn more about our special treatments here.

A vast selection of treatments at MGS Northern Beaches Physio

With our extensive experience and various treatment options, such as orthotics, dry needling, and pilates, we have what it takes to create a treatment plan that will bring you to your best self in no time. From conditions like Achilles tendonitis and shin splints to complex musculoskeletal disorders, or just general body maintenance, we have the expertise to keep you happy and pain-free.

Our highly skilled Physiotherapists use state-of-the-art equipment and a full range of typical treatments such as postural correction, joint mobilisation, soft tissue massage and more. In addition, we can combine these techniques with our dry needling and pilates expertise.

Fix your low-level muscular aches and pains before they become a real problem. As the old adage goes: prevention is better than cure.

Dry Needling MGS Physio

Dry Needling at MGS Northern Beaches Physio

What is dry needling? Based on traditional Eastern healing methods in combination with Trigger Point therapy, the dry needling techniques we use here at MGS work hand in hand with our typical techniques. These two treatment methods work together to treat many musculoskeletal conditions.

We insert tiny acupuncture needles into your tissue’s painful or dysfunctional areas in dry needling. The aim is to reduce tightness and muscular pain, restoring your normal tissue physiology.

Our dry needling treatments basically “reset” your muscle. It is excellent for people with problems originating from repetitive postures, like office workers who spend a lot of time sitting at a computer or people who play repetitive sports, like tennis.

Pilates on the Northern Beaches

Are you suffering from lower back pain? Here at MGS, our pilates treatments will stabilise your spine and give you greater control of the muscles in your back. But, as any pilates lover will tell you, it is not yoga! Saying that the two disciplines have plenty of overlap – but of course, some fundamental divergences too. Pilates was invented in Germany in the 1960s by a physical trainer named Joseph Pilates to strengthen professional dancers, while yoga is a variety of 5000-year-old Indian meditation exercises. At MGS, we know how to use principles from both disciplines to heal your back pain and strengthen your abdominal muscles.

The pilates we offer is brilliant if you’re trying to recover from an injury and ideal for improving your mobility in general.

Reformer Pilates classes in the Northern Beaches

Suppose you’re recovering from an injury, dealing with a musculoskeletal condition, or trying to increase your mobility and strength. Why not try out one of our Pilates classes in Northern Beaches? Our Pilates classes are a great option if you have back pain or want to increase your core strength. Pilates promotes back health by stabilising your spine, but it is also beneficial for general health. Your balance, posture, sports performance and body awareness will increase. You will have more energy and better flexibility, too. Want to give it a go? Check out our offers here.

Whatever your muscular ache, pain or complaint; dry needling can help. By targeting trigger points, this method reduces inflammation, releases tension and relieves pressure in the muscles.

Pain relief can be felt immediately but the benefits are also long-term in both a prevention and recovery capacity. This technique also helps to switch on muscles that are having difficulty firing correctly.


Dry needling involves introducing very fine, solid filament needles into the skin. The needles have been proven to create an immediate change in local circulation. This process kickstarts the healing chemicals which help reduce inflammation, relax an over-tightened muscle or, conversely, activate a weaker muscle.


Pain relief is often immediately felt, and in many cases you should also see an increase in both range of movement and muscular activation (or performance) within the first 24 hours. This technique is powerful and capable of creating a long-lasting positive effect in as little as 2-3 treatment sessions.

Post treatment

You may experience some soreness on the day of treatment, but this can easily be remedied by applying ice for 20 minutes or so. We ensure that you walk away with a whole host of tips, tricks and recommended home exercises, so you can confidently take healing into your own hands. Later, when you feel ready, practices such as yoga, Pilates or mild strength training can also aid your recovery.

Early appointments available

We want to make it easier for you to prioritise your health. That’s why we offer flexible, early morning appointments that fit into your busy schedule.

Treating the cause, and the symptoms

Treating the symptoms will only mask the underlying cause. We work consultatively with you, and experiment until we unearth the real root of your issue.

New patients might ask us…

Can I book over the phone?

Yes! You can call find the clinic phone numbers at the very top of the page on a desktop, or in the side menu on a mobile.

You will find our Receptionists very friendly and helpful. They will find a time that suits you and make sure you know where to park, how to get there and where we are.

Do I need a doctor to refer me to you first?

You do not need a referral from a doctor to see a physiotherapist however if you do have one please bring it along. We like to communicate with your doctor and any other practitioners involved in your care.

Will you remind me that I have an appointment with you?

Yes! You will have your appointment confirmed a day or so before by text, email or telephone call – whichever you prefer.

How long will my appointment be?

Appointments are scheduled a minimum of 30 minutes apart. We find that in the majority of cases that this is the most appropriate amount of time. In more complex conditions or for multiple injuries longer appointments can be arranged.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Yes please! Any investigations or scans relating to the condition will help us understand your presentation better. Even if you just have the reports from scans they will be very helpful. Likewise any notes from other Therapists or doctors would be great. If you don’t have anything then don’t worry just bring yourself.

If you have problems related to walking or sport then please bring your runners or boots in for use to look at.

If you have a WorkCover claim or were injured at work then please bring your claim number. If you do not have a claim number but intend to get one please advise our receptionist when you arrive.

I'm running late!

Our aim is that everyone receives the attention they require and while achieving this we attempt to utilise all of our available time.  If you are running late please call ahead and our Receptionist will check with your physio to see if it is possible to still see you.  There may not be enough time to attend to your needs effectively.  If we rush you through your treatment it is at best not helpful to you and at worst unsafe.  We can simply reschedule your appointment for a later time.
