WELCOME TO FUNCTION

YOUR TOTAL PHYSICAL WELLNESS CENTRE

When you experience an injury or notice a joint or muscle isn’t functioning the way it used to, most physiotherapists will provide treatment until the symptoms go away. 

The problem is, not having an understanding of the underlying cause means your aches and pains will soon be back. At Function, we investigate the cause of your physical problem before resolving your symptoms. From here, we’ll provide you with the knowledge and training to continue to perform at your best.
