About the Clinic

Newcastle Aquatic Physiotherapy began operating on July 1st, 2007 and was officially opened by Dr Gerry Mah on 9th November the same year. Owned and operated by Charlie Finlay-Jones, the practice had previously been housed at The Hunter Valley Private Hospital in Shortland for 12 years under the name of Shortland Physiotherapy & Hydrotherapy.  As both the hospital and practice grew, it became apparent that new premises were required.  Ground was broken for the new premises in 2005 and we conducted ourselves from both sites for the next two years. Five years have passed and the practice has grown again to incorporate a full commercial quality gym to compliment, what we believe to be, the best hydrotherapy facility in the Hunter Region.We provide physiotherapy and hydrotherapy to a wide range of clients including post surgery orthopaedics (joint replacement), back injuries, stroke, MS, muscular dystrophy, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, chronic pain management and rehabilitation.  We welcome all patients i.e. Private, Workers Compensation, Third Party, Medicare (EPC) and Department of Veteran’s Affairs.Newcastle Aquatic Physiotherapy is registered with Fitness Australia and recognised by many health funds as a fitness facility.
