Start Right Physiotherapy

Helping ALL kids be kids

Start Right Physiotherapists provide physiotherapy services to children from birth to school leaving.

Our physiotherapists are highly skilled and have significant experience in children’s physiotherapy across the public, private, disability and community sector.

All physiotherapists are registered Physiotherapists with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Agency (AHPRA), and all have Medicare provider numbers enabling access to Medicare programs.

We are NDIS registered and provide services to NDIS participants who are self-managed or plan managed. We also support 7-18 year olds’ whose plans are managed by the NDIA.

While GP or specialist referrals are welcome, you can also book directly with us without a referral.

Kym is a fun, enthusiastic and highly skilled children’s physiotherapist. She is passionate about access to physical activity for young people with a disability and thrives on the challenge of encouraging children to enjoy physical activity.

She loves working with families of young children with disabilities or injuries; helping them to understand their child’s condition, and empowering parents to support their child in maximising their mobility.

When not working with children and their families, Kym is mum to two surprisingly wonderful boys.
