We are a team of clinicians working in a community based rehab service based in Artarmon. Over the last 14 years we have built a reputation as one of the most progressive neurological rehab services in Australia. We have founded several neurological rehab programs that are now being widely adopted by other clinicians and public rehab services here in Australia and overseas.

Founded and led by Melissa McConaghy, you will not find a more dedicated, passionate and innovative rehab service to help you in your rehab journey. We only employ and partner with senior clinicians who are hand-picked for their skill set, their experience, and their enthusiasm.

2019 was a huge year for the Advance Rehab Centre in winning both the Allied Health Adult Private Practice Excellence Award, and the Physiotherapist of The Year Award at the 2019 Australian Allied Health Awards in Melbourne. The year got even better when Melissa McConaghy won the  2019 Australian Physiotherapy Association NSW branch Award for Contribution to the Profession.

We are the service you choose if you are looking for a specialist team who understand your neurological and disability needs. Every day, we help people improve after their stroke, brain or spinal cord injury, or after diagnosis of a progressive condition. It’s our thing. It’s our passion and we are very good at it.

We are fully immersed in developing, trialling and educating in the community rehab space. This means that we will only recommend services that we think will provide you with the best and fastest way to achieve your goals. Recommendations might include an intensive boot camp approach, specialist equipment, self-managed program or full multi-disciplinary team approach.

As an education and training centre we have taken on the role of guiding the advancement of neurological rehabilitation in the community setting with our medical and health professional peers, University students and the broader patient community.

Our vision is to provide a rehab experience that is unparalleled in the community setting. With your best interest at heart, we have re-invested heavily in the equipment we have onsite, the skill of the team and the training we continue to provide to the community in which we exist.
