Who we treat

Having worked as a physiotherapist for 20 years, Abby has experience in practices from Canberra to the Sunshine Coast and is now owner and principal physiotherapist at AA Physiotherapy in Murwillumbah.
Equal parts anatomy nerd and cheerleader, Abby is the exact combination you want as your physiotherapist.
