Cardinia Physio and Fitness believes in an holistic approach to your healthcare. We look at you as an individual and your body as a whole to tailor make treatment plans for the best possible outcomes. We understand that everyone’s goals, abilities and bodies are different and consider this when assessing your condition.
We are a progressive, modern clinic with an aim to reduce our impact on the environment by minimising our paper trail. Our therapists and staff use tablet computers for note taking and iPads to educate you on your anatomy when we are describing your condition. This eliminates your confusion and also leaves you with peace of mind that you are getting the best health care.
As we are electronically connected we are very fast with responding to online inquires and emails, so feel free ask us questions at anytime! And while you are online, don’t forget to like us on facebook for all of our up to date information, specials and tips.

Elisha Cole studied a Masters of Physiotherapy and Bachelor of Health Science at Latrobe University. Elisha is a happy outgoing person who has always been passionate about helping others. She grew up on the Mornington Peninsula and has been heavily involved in netball since the age of 10.
Elisha has always had a fascination for the human body; however it wasn’t until her own experience with a severe knee injury in 2011, that she knew she wanted to be a physiotherapist. This experience opened her eyes to the importance of trust, clear communication and motivation with health practitioners when overcoming an injury. This has fed her passion to help others in their own recovery from musculoskeletal injuries.
Although Elisha enjoys treating a variety of different conditions, she has a special interest in women’s health, sports injuries, hydrotherapy and lower limb injuries.
