About Us

We are a team of nationally accredited allied health professionals dedicated to providing a range of comprehensive health, injury management and recovery services and delivering tailored preventative health programs.

With access to Altius Group’s network of specialists, we’re able to offer innovative rehab solutions to address a range of factors impacting an individual’s recovery – including medical, psychological, physical, social and financial. We’re able to assess an individual’s or an organisation’s needs and then connect the services required from our adjoining business subsidiaries.

Our work is based on the philosophy that work and independence are critical to health and wellbeing. We know that recovering at work, while often difficult, leads to more rapid and sustainable health outcomes.

We have an in-depth understanding of physical and psychological health conditions that impact individuals as well as organisations. Just as no two individual cases are the same, our solutions also vary as it's important to us to identify the services best suited to achieving timely, cost effective and sustainable outcomes for all parties involved.

Our programs are backed by the latest, evidence based personal injury research, delivered by a team with years of field experience and a strong commercial awareness of the most cost-effective solutions.
