Stride Health was established under the name Country Physiotherapy, in Mudgee in 2005 to provide the Mid Western region with high quality Physiotherapy services. In 2018, we expanded our focus beyond Physiotherapy to a multidisciplinary service to include Exercise Physiology and Podiatry with a view to further expand the Allied Health services in the future.
In 2012 a second location was opened in Gulgong. Both clinics have a Pilates Studio, Mudgee also holds fitness classes and Gulgong has a 24/7 gym.
Our physiotherapists provide excellent hands on techniques and treatments to assist clients in their recovery. Several of our physiotherapists also teach Pilates which is a huge advantage for clients transferring from hands on treatment to exercise. Many of our physiotherapists also have an area of special interest such as hand therapy.
Our Exercise Physiologist (EP) is available to design, implement and review exercise programs for people with a range of chronic or acute medical conditions, injuries or disabilities. Conditions covered by the services of our EP include cardiovascular, metabolic, neurological, musculoskeletal, cancers, kidney, respiratory/pulmonary and mental health.
Every month we have a Podiatrist who travels from Sydney to visit our Mudgee clinic. Specialising in the mechanics of the feet, he has worked extensively with a number of elite sporting clubs and offers a wealth of experience to our team.
We offer a range of fitness and Pilates classes conducted by qualified trainers and/or physiotherapists at various times throughout the week.
Clients are encouraged to take an active approach in their recovery and this often involves using the fully equipped and modern rehabilitation gym and Pilates Studios. The rehabilitation gym is available for free any time the clinic is open during the course of a clients rehabilitation. A strength of our multidisciplinary approach is that we have the ability to direct clients into appropriate and safe exercise pathways to assist with their rehabilitation and this often includes transitioning into our Pilates classes or working directly with one of our trainers. With a number of Allied Health and fitness professionals under one roof we can work collaboratively to provide each client with the best care.
