At Sendero Physiotherapy we can assist you by providing a functional and holistic assessment, advice and therapy in the comfort of your own home, workplace, day program or preferred outdoor location. Our treatment is specifically targeted to stimulate the nervous system to reorganise itself in a way that restores movement and function regardless of whether there is a neurological condition. Everything we work on will ultimately be based on function
