About Us 2018-06-05T11:29:39+00:00


MoveWell Physiotherapy Joondalup Gate is owned by three partners, Gavin Kerruish, Nathan Cliff and MoveWell Physiotherapy (Peter Owens and Felicity Kermode). All three partners have extensive experience in owning and managing Physiotherapy Clinics in Western Australia, particularly in the Northern corridor of Perth, as well as a wealth of Clinical experience.

Not all Physiotherapists are the same and at MoveWell Physiotherapy Joondalup Gate, you will notice the difference. We believe in providing you with a thorough assessment and an accurate diagnosis. We believe in hands on therapy to help ease your pain, and practical exercise prescription to treat the cause of the problem, to provide you with a long term solution

We believe in utilising our many treatment options, including hydrotherapy, dry needling, clinical pilates, real-time ultrasound imaging, gym based rehabilitation and exercise prescription in conjunction with our hands-on therapy to get you moving faster and stronger.

Our location within the St John’s Medical Centre, near the Edgewater train station, provides easy parking, or access by public transport and access to Doctors, radiology, pathology, psychology, dietetics, and Pharmacy, all onsite, a true multidisciplinary experience.

Professional Development & Training

Partnering with MoveWell means we have access to the industry leading Professional Development program, coordinated by MoveWell’s PD Director, Felicity Kermode.

All of our Physiotherapists go through a complete fortnightly professional development program for the first 2 years that they work for us. This is coupled with regular PD events that all of MoveWell’s Physiotherapists attend as well as individual Physios attending special PD events both locally and interstate.

A Professional Development program of such breadth and depth means that you as the client can be assured you are receiving the most up to date evidence based care available.
