Frank Richardson – Principal Physiotherapist

Frank Richardson is the principal physiotherapist who was trained at UniSA in Adelaide, graduating in 2003 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. He spent the following 19 years working predominately in private practice and subcontracting physiotherapy services to nursing homes and government departments. In 2012 he moved up to the Sunshine Coast with a view to start his own practice “SMIILE Physiotherapy” which opened in January 2013. Since then the practice has been steadily growing, becoming a part of the Peregian Beach community.

Over the last 18 years Frank has become very experienced in the private physiotherapy arena and is happy to look at any physical issues you may have. From niggly little pains or muscle injuries to more complex injuries and debilitating pains, Frank will have you covered. If he can’t find an answer to your problem, he will follow you up and liaise with medical professionals until a solution is found.

Frank also has a special interest in Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) and, over the last few years, has been very effective in the treatment and management of this debilitating condition. So if you struggle with BPPV don’t wait. Call for an appointment now. The sooner we get to treat you, the sooner you can return to a normal life.
