Tuggerah Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy is located on the Pacific Highway within Tuggerah Straight Commercial Centre. It was established over 10 years ago in 2008. All treatments are performed by the practice principal, Ricky Li, who has over 18 years of experience and is one of the few physiotherapist on the Central Coast to have obtained the post-graduate Masters Degree titling of APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist via the University of Sydney.
Ricky has a special interest in the differential diagnosis of complex musculoskeletal disorders, especially in regards to spinal pain. A thorough, one-to-one consultation is always provided, and we try to involve the patient in the development of treatment strategies. Specifically targeted manual therapy or mobilisation/manipulative techniques are often used under the guidance of the latest scientific evidence, over the preference of electrical machines. After a mechanical pattern is established, a self-management program is encouraged where possible, so as to minimise the need for regular ongoing hands-on treatment.
