The Avenue Physiotherapy Centre was established in 1986 to provide inpatient physiotherapy services to The Avenue Hospital and rehabilitation services to the surgeons working in the Melbourne Orthopaedic Group. This alliance has given us substantial experience in all matters surrounding orthopaedic surgery and great access to a network of leading specialists.
Since then we have diversified and now offer a wider range of services to the local community of Prahran, Windsor and surrounding suburbs.
We have a very strong focus on:
- patient education
- evidence-based practice
- exercise prescription and
- self-management principles
We take pride in providing excellent customer service, and we offer long appointment times as standard
We welcome patients covered by Worksafe, TAC and DVA, and offer bulk-billing (ie. no out of pocket expense) to these patients. We also accept patients referred by GPs under a Managed Care Plan, or EPC scheme.
Principal Physiotherapist: Craig Steventon
Craig graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Physiotherapy (with Honours) in 1993 and later completed a Graduate Certificate in Sports Physiotherapy in 2006. He has worked in the area of orthopaedic surgery since 1997 in a variety of settings including public hospitals, private hospitals, and private practices. He has also worked with football clubs in the EFL and junior Victorian soccer teams. He joined The Avenue Physiotherapy Centre practice in 2002, and then in 2007 became the principal physiotherapist. He has a special interest in lower limb injuries, largely due to the many knee injuries he sustained in his younger years! His approach to physiotherapy has therefore been influenced by at various times being both the consumer as well as the therapist.
Craig is registered with AHPRA (the health professional's regulating body), a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, a member of Sports Medicine Australia, and is an approved provider for Worksafe, TAC and DVA.
