Our Team


For 28 years Bathurst Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries Centre have helped the people of the central west life a better life. Our goal is to provide the best possible care for our clients. Whether you are suffering and in pain or trying to live your life to the fullest, we are committed to providing expert, compassionate care and advice.

Our staff are passionate about helping their clients achieve their goals, we do this by striving to reach our full potential as physiotherapists. We are committed to continually improving our skills through ongoing education and training so that our clients are given the absolute best possible care. Improving everyday as a therapist means having a commitment to ongoing education, learning and skill development.  

Our commitment to providing the best possible care is demonstrated by our principle physiotherapist John Roberts who is currently undertaking a PhD on persistent pain following knee replacement. Additionally, both John and Luke Howard have undergone formal post-graduate training to qualify as titled physiotherapists.

Our practice contributes to physiotherapy education. John, Luke and Al Fryer either lecture or tutor on Charles Sturt University (CSU) physiotherapy programme and supervise physiotherapy students from CSU, Sydney University and Newcastle University. Shannon Mansur and Al Fryer tutor on the Masters of Exercise science programme at CSU.

By being our best, we can provide our clients with the best possible care. We understand how hard it can be dealing with debilitating injuries and how hard it is to navigate the language and investigations used in medicine. We are proud of the time we take to explain to our clients the implications of their injury, what the investigations mean and how to progress towards maximum improvement.

We have over 80 years combined physiotherapy experience. We are compassionate, caring and interested in our client’s stories. We draw on our training and experience to listen to our clients, discuss their goals and develop a treatment plan in consultation with them that is evidenced based. Treatment includes a thorough in-depth assessment followed by, a vast array of manual and soft tissue techniques. Education about your condition and what you can expect from treatment, and a structured meaningful exercise programme that is directed towards your goals.

We have been members of the local medical community for thirty years we have a strong network of health professionals such as GP’s, orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, psychologists, pharmacists and exercise physiologists who we collaborate with to help you live a better life.
