About Us

Our approach to Physio is hands-on and exercise based, because that’s what works. We don’t hook people up to machines and walk away, in fact we don’t even have any. Research has proven the benefits of manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and functional conditioning and we continue to develop our service in line with developments in our understanding of how the body functions and how we recover from injury.

All treatments are one-on-one.

The only BULK BILLING Physio’s in Woolgoolga, on the Northern Beaches and Coffs Coast with an EPC referral from your GP. Most other clinics will charge you a gap, our no gap policy can save you approximately $40.00 a session.  To be eligible for bulk billing you must have a current EPC form and you must provide payment details in advance.  You will only be charged the fee if you do not show up to the appointment.  You can only have 5 EPC sessions per calendar year and these may be other allied health professionals not just physio – please check with your GP BEFORE booking.

In 2018 we will have a multi-layered pricing system for EPC and regular appointments – we will still have no gap appointments they will just not be available with every physio. You will pay more to see a senior physiotherapist or have to pay the gap if you want to use an EPC.

Don’t forget an EPC referral can be used by any physio in our clinic, not just the one listed.

We provide FULL LENGTH CONSULTATIONS to Veterans affairs (DVA) and work cover clients. Some clinics only offer shorter appointments.  All work cover clients must provide payment details in advance, you will not be charged if you attend your appointments only if you DNA (Do Not Attend).

We offer extended opening hours both before and after work & Saturdays. We know getting to a physio during business hours can be hard, so we are here late and on Saturdays.

Based on comprehensive assessment, we utilise a wide range of manual therapy techniques, progressive therapeutic exercise and complimentary techniques including Pilates, Acupuncture and Hydrotherapy.

How is Woopi Physio Different?

We’ve been asked how we are different from the other physio’s in Woolgoolga so here is what we think sets us apart:


With over 17 years specialising in musculoskeletal Physio our lead physiotherapist Scott Mitchell has a few more years under his belt than most. In addition to this he has spent 25 years training with great track & field and conditioning coaches which provided an excellent foundation for athletic rehab that most Physio don’t have benefit of at any stage of their careers. We also recruit only the best and all our staff undertake the highest quality CPD.


Even with a good number of years experience we charge less than any other physiotherapist in Woolgoolga. We may be cheaper but that does not mean the quality is any less, we just want to ensure our physiotherapy services are more accessible to everyone in Woolgoolga and the Coffs Coast. Please check the price at time of booking as we charge different prices based on the experience of your practitioner.

Bulk Billing

On referral from your GP we happily bulk bill. No gaps, SAVE up to $40.00 per session. No taking receipts to Medicare to claim money back, it’s all done for you here, in our Woolgoolga Physiotherapy clinic. Please ensure you have a current EPC referral from your GP and have not had more than 5 sessions per calender year. Not all physio’s in our team bulk bill so please confirm if a gap payment is payable with your physio or ask for a GAP Free physio. 

We are the only gap free BULK BILLING Physio clinic in Woolgoolga, on the Northern Beaches and Coffs Coast, you may not live local but we think it’s worth the short drive to Woolgoolga to use our services.

Consultation Length

Our standard appointments are 30 minutes and we will provide FULL LENGTH CONSULTATIONS to veterans affairs (DVA) and work cover clients.


We understand that people have to get to work and have family commitments so we are available at our Woolgoolga clinic at times that suit you. It may be before work or after the kids are off to bed we can help. We are available from 7am until 9pm by appointment Monday to Friday, Saturday’s until we finish and sometimes we even work on public holidays.

If you can’t get to us we will organise to get to you. Home visits will incur additional charges to allow for the extra time we need to allocate for our physiotherapists.

We also offer online bookings for our Woolgoolga Physiotherapy clinic so you can easily chose times and modify bookings from your home or smart phone.
