At Hilltop Health, we have been focusing on enhancing the lives of people living with chronic pain and illness, for well over a decade. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) are the two main approaches that are used.
Interdisciplinary CBT and ACT-based interventions have been found to reduce suffering and increase wellbeing in people who are diagnosed with chronic pain and illnesses.
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

We help our patients with personalised injury prevention and rehabilitation, youth athlete development programs, recurring back pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, neurological pain, chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS), phantom limb pain, management of arthritis and joint health, and much more.
What is a Dietitian?
Dietitian is a food and nutrition expert with a recognised qualification, who translates the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. A Registered Dietitian is appropriately trained to deal with the nutritional management of specific clinical conditions. A Dietitian will often work as part of a multidisciplinary team such as a consultant physician, physiotherapist and psychologist. As well as carrying out individual consultations, education can also be provided to groups, schools and businesses.
