Garima is the founder and Principal Physiotherapist of Get Better Physiotherapy Centres. She is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association. Her experience has been in private practice treating Musculoskeletal and Sports injuries. She came to Australia in 2006 to get her Physiotherapy license. After working for a while, Garima noticed a lack of high quality treatment. There was no emphasis on hands on Physiotherapy. Furthermore, there was lack of awareness among the general population. Most patients were well aware of chiropractors. However, had never even heard of Physiotherapy!
Garima strongly believes that Physio should be hands on. Her aim is to get the patients better quicker and educate them regarding the benefits of Physio. As a result, Get Better Physiotherapy Centre was established. Garima uses techniques such as joint mobilizations with massage. Her interests lie in the treatment of spinal disc related conditions.
