Physio | Physiotherapy & Pilates | Stafford, Brisbane Northern Suburbs

Stafford Physiotherapy and Pilates (previously Stafford Physiotherapy Centre) was established in 1988 by physiotherapist Sandra Day. Our dedicated team of physiotherapists is committed to providing clients with a comprehensive assessment and treatment program in a friendly and caring environment.

We employ skilled, predominantly ‘hands-on’ technical expertise, and provide specific exercise programs and advice. You can be confident that your treatment will include the latest techniques and research due to our ongoing commitment to education.


Physiotherapists are considered ‘first contact practitioners’, which means we can determine whether your problem can be treated by physiotherapy or whether it requires referral to another professional.

We can help treat the following conditions:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Joint aches and strains, including osteoarthritis and osteoporosis
  • Sporting injuries and muscle strains
  • Headaches
  • Pelvic floor weakness
  • Posture issues
  • Growing pains

We can also help with:

  • WorkCover injuries
  • Department of Veterans’ Affairs clients
  • Compulsory third party claims
  • Pre and post-operative rehabilitation
  • Pre-employment screening

Community Involvement

Stafford Physiotherapy Centre is pleased to support our local community by providing work experience opportunities, free lectures to various groups, sports coverage, and support to local schools and charities. Please contact us if you think we may be able to assist you or your organisation.

Clinical Pilates

We opened our Pilates studio in 2012 so that we could offer our clients and members of the public the many benefits of Pilates, under the expert guidance of a physiotherapist.

Clinical Pilates means that we assess the body’s clinical needs and adapt the exercises to suit each individual client (rather than everyone doing the same exercises in a large group class, without assessment).

Pilates can form part of injury rehabilitation and recovery alongside physiotherapy treatments, or can simply be an excellent form of exercise focused on strength and conditioning.

Our physiotherapy exercise sessions are a mixture of clinically appropriate exercises, which may include exercises delivered on Pilates equipment or exercises drawn from Pilates that target their particular needs. Our physiotherapists deliver these exercises within an evidenced-based and therapeutic framework.

We also offer private Pilates classes. Contact us to enquire.
