About Us

Simone Barker & Associates (SB&A) Physiotherapists was founded in 2017. Located in the heart of Claremont’s medical hub on Wilderness Road, it is just a stone’s throw from Kingsbury Hospital. From its first month practicing it has grown as word quickly spread about the culture, quality and heart behind the name. Founded and owned by Simone Barker, it originally started out with a special focus on the niche sphere of mastectomies, since then it has grown to cover all neuromusculoskeletal disorders and post-operative rehabilitation. We cater to both in-patients at Kingsbury Hospital, and out patients from Claremont and the surrounding areas of the southern suburbs.

Education and Advice

The physiotherapist’s role is to assess, treat, advise and prevent further injury. We provide general advice and ways to improve your overall wellbeing. We will investigate and discuss the cause of the problem and how we can work on ways to fix it in the short and long term. This may include programmes which focus on an adjustment to your lifestyle for example: changing your ergonomics (posture at work), exercise technique or regular exercise as a form of stress release.

Rehabilitative exercise: This is aimed at improving movement and function

Each structure of the body ligament, muscle, tendon, disc and nerve follow a pattern of healing. Dependant on the nature of the injury or if there are set post-operative requirements, your physiotherapist will tailor your rehabilitation programme to you your specific condition. We will also make informed decisions on whether or not you need further investigation.
