At Physioactive we have Titled Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists. To have a consult with one of these Physiotherapists there is a slightly greater cost, as these Physiotherapists are more experienced with greater training. These are Tier 2 Physotherapists, while our other Physiotherapists are Tier 1.
