Tuncurry Forster Physiotherapy

The Physio Clinic Tuncurry is independently owned and operated by Aaron Eichner from rooms in Beach Street Tuncurry, having taken over from Wayne Gooley who, after more than 30 years continues to practice part-time. Aaron has over 10 years experience as a fully qualified physiotherapist, including two years working with paediatrics including at the John Hunter Childrens Hospital before relocating to the Forster Tuncurry region as a rehabilitation manager at Forster Private Hospital 5 years ago. Beth Cullen has now been practicing in the area for over two years, calls the Great Lakes home and has great knowledge and experience in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and delivers mat based pilates classes.

Aaron, Beth and Wayne are committed to providing quality, evidenced based care in the Forster Tuncurry area. We have developed a professional relationship with GP’s, specialists and other allied health providers in the area.

The Physio Clinic Tuncurry provides the highest level of care for you and your family, providing hands on and rehabilitation services. Rather than being treated by the ‘next available’ therapist with someone different each time, at The Physio Clinic Tuncurry you’ll be treated by an experienced clinician who’ll provide you with consistent care and motivation for years to come. Allowing you to be at your best no matter what challenges life throws your way!
