Mary Anne Rock

About Me

Mary Anne Rock

Physiotherapist and Practice Principal

I have a passion for providing professional, personalised and evidence-based Physiotherapy care on Land and in Hydrotherapy Pools. For many years I have had great satisfaction working in private practice around the northside of Brisbane as well as my own.

For 40+ years I have accumulated extensive experience in hospitals, community practice and private practice since, and also had extensive post-grad education.

I use hands on manual/exercise therapy to reduce pain, improve strength, mobility and independence.

Hydrotherapy – also called Aquatic Physiotherapy – is an evidence-based treatment modality that is generally much underrated as an adjunct to traditional Physiotherapy In-Rooms Manual and Exercise Therapy treatment. 

You do not need to be able to swim
Aqua Therapy does not involve swimming or submerging your head and can be done in the 1.2 m shallow part of the pool or in the deep water 1.6m end of the pool with a floatation device.

Pool sessions are 15 to 60 minutes and are available in a one-on-one or group environment. Pools are easily accessible.

Sessions are held Mon, Wed and Fri from 1-3pm at the Chermside Aquatic Center.

I have been a client of Mary Anne’s for many years, I often refer to her as “Mary Anne’s House of pain”. Mary Anne listens to my concerns and then uses her many years of experience to perform her multi skilled technique’s which can include heat, dry needles, ultra sound and her magic thumbs, the short pain is worth the long term gain. Her practise offers flexible hours that is a real benefit that allows my treatment to not impact my working day, five star thumbs up from me.”
