OccFit Physiotherapy was first established in 2014 providing onsite workplace physiotherapy and injury management services to businesses and mobile treatment of Workcover injuries.
Our initial focus was on the early detection and management of minor niggles/injuries, to prevent them progressing towards a Workers Compensation claim and more serious disability.
While we continue to provide quality workplace physiotherapy, the opening of our clinic based in Emu Heights is in a prime location to service those who live in the lower Blue Mountains, Penrith and Western Sydney region. We now strive to provide quality physiotherapy and injury management services to all individuals, no matter your age or activity level.
We want you to continue to live your way of life free from pain and disability.
