Peter Terry, Physiotherapist
My passion in physiotherapy is understanding what the client's needs are and using manual therapy, exercise therapy and complementary therapy services to optimise health outcomes and provide relief from pain and disability.
I specialise in spinal pain, sports physio and post operative rehabilitation.
My own professional history began after graduation in 1985 from the Lincoln Institute in Melbourne some 30 years ago, with post graduate specialisation in Manipulative Therapy in 1991. I have worked many years in public hospitals and ran the outpatients department at The Hammersmith Hospital as a Superintendent Physiotherapist in London for 3 years. I moved to private practice in 1994 and have worked in many excellent clinics in England and Melbourne, before arriving in Drysdale.
I look forward to offering you an excellent service from myself and all our dedicated therapists and staff.
We look forward to meeting and caring for you.
