Supporting you to Liv happy, healthy and active through holistic physiotherapy, health and fitness services.

At LivFit Physio Mornington our mission is to help improve the lifelong health and wellbeing of our clients, local community and ultimately all of Melbourne.

We do this by providing empowering, holistic, evidence-based healthcare that not only addresses your symptoms but also the root cause of your issue through accurate assessment, hands on treatment and exercise.

A physiotherapy service that is both personal and local.

Having previously owned thriving clinics in Australia’s largest Physio group, and working together for many years, LivFit Physio co-founders Nathan and Simon wanted to branch out and utilise the expertise they’d learnt over a combined 40 years in the physiotherapy industry to build a physiotherapy service that was both cutting edge but also personal and local.

With a shared passion for improving the health and happiness of their local community, Simon and Nathan joined forces to create LivFit Physio. A holistic physiotherapy, health and fitness offering that allows the LivFit Physio team to genuinely connect with their clients. Because health care should be personal – it’s about people after all!

How we can help you to LivFit

At LivFit Physio Mornington we help you to not just Liv Pain Free, but to look after your body so that you can Liv Healthy, Liv Active and Liv Your Best Life.

We aim to not only provide pain relief but so much more:

We support you to truly understand the cause of your issue.

We identify the stress or load that’s causing your pain and remove it.

We use hands-on treatment to desensitise your injured body part and get it moving properly again.

We offer exercise to improve muscle memory and strength, to reduce the likelihood of the problem happening again.

We coach you to improve your overall physical strength and vitality, to prevent future injuries and optimise your health.

We use empowering, holistic, evidence-based care to manage your injury.

To successfully deal with a pain or injury, a holistic approach is needed. The benefit to you – we prevent future injuries and improve overall health and wellbeing at the same time.

At LivFit Physio Mornington we do this by empowering you to fix your injury. Identifying and improving other  weaknesses, postural issues or movement restrictions you may have to help prevent future injuries. All while teaching you beneficial health and wellness principals.

We’re focussed on providing a real-world relevant diagnosis that is personal to you.

Central to our management process is identifying what’s important to you. This is key to a real-world and relevant diagnosis. For example: you don’t have a lumbar disc bulge, that’s just the medical diagnosis.

What you have is a weakness or overload in your back that is causing pain and stopping you from driving to see your mum, playing on the floor with your kids or grandkids, or going to the gym and losing those stubborn winter kgs. A real-world and relevant diagnosis that is personal to you.

That’s why, at LivFit Physio Mornington we don’t just help get rid of a pain. We’re dedicated to finding out what’s important to you. Enabling us to put together a tailored health and fitness plan that helps you get back to running to play with the kids, competing in that Grand Final, or getting back to work and paying the bills!

As a physiotherapist with over 20 years of experience, I’m proud to be Practice Co-Director at LivFit Physio. I believe in eliminating the underlying cause of my clients’ pain and then optimizing their health, not simply relieving pain. Focusing on helping my clients to be fitter, stronger and more capable, and therefore ensuring they avoid future injuries and achieve better health and enjoyment in life.

I’m dedicated to fully understanding my client’s needs and wants and striving to provide them with the best possible options and choices for their management. With a keen interest in: Back, Hip and Pelvic Pain; Running Injuries; Tendon Injuries, Postural Pain Syndromes (common in office workers); TMJ (Jaw Joint) Dysfunction, Gym Injuries, Strength and Conditioning; and Pilates.

Outside of work my interests include surfing, snowboarding, gym, tennis and hockey. Golf when I can! The beach, sun, and snow. Travel…. Can’t wait to travel again. And did I mention good food?
