Not Just Bendy Hypermobility Services
Not Just Bendy Hypermobility Services has been created due to a real need in the community to understand, assess and manage the complexity of problems associated with hypermobility. Our physiotherapists have extensive training in general physiotherapy and also in hypermobility. We have opened the first custom built facility in Australia designed specifically for hypermobility.
Many physiotherapy practices will claim that they know how to treat hypermobility, but they are not 100% dedicated to hypermobility like we are.
We are endeavoring to be friendly to neurodivergent and LQBTQI+ clients. Our practice has private spacious treatment rooms, dimmable lights (for light sensitive clients), undercover parking and lift access. As the building in new we have have no mould and minimal dust (thanks to our robot vacuum that runs every night) which is ideal for clients with allergies. We have a rehabilitation gym with pilates equipment, weights and other small apparatus for individual and small group exercise.
We sell a wide range of products that we have sourced from around the world to assist those with hypermobility including supportive braces, self massage equipment and some zebra patterned merchandise.
