Many have stated that this is unbelievable, until they visited the business and saw for themselves.

  • Many physiotherapist around the country are now replicating this success

This fees and service structure is a unique application based on the APA National Physiotherapy Service Descriptors


Ridgway Method (RM) Explained

RM is a standardised, repeatable system that consistently gains immediate, dramatic and long lasting results for the vast majority of musculoskeletal conditions.

Physiotherapists of all experience & qualification levels apply this system, the day after the course, with the same results as above - and physiotherapists consistently report that this system is much easier to apply than conventional physiotherapy methods.

Successful practitioners know that Client Management is one of the most important factors for greatest success with clients & with business

This is why 22 of the 36 check-points for competency with the Ridgway Method are client management systems...and 14 check-points are based on assessment and treatment interventions.

These client management systems ensure:

  • Each client leaves with a tangible experience and an understandable process
  • Each client knows what they will get and where the end point is
  • Including - what caused the condition,
  • how long it will take to resolve, and how much this will cost.

After their first session clients leave asking "How soon can I book back in?" ...even though the per session cost is higher.

Clients express they are happy to pay more for each session as they can see fewer sessions are required and this saves them time and money overall.

Physiotherapist's Feedback





  • "I was blown away by this course – the content was superb and the presentation even better!  It’s very “do-able” and I know that my practice will benefit enormously from this.  Thank you Michael and Jessica.”
    - Jenny Dutton, Successful Bathurst Practice Owner
  • “Having just completed the Ridgway Method (RM) course and spending time with Michael and Jessica being mentored in RM, I am convinced this is the future of physiotherapy.  RM is revolutionary and as a private practitioner I find I get results quickly in a logical, problem solving and objective way. My treatments are now more efficient, more enjoyable and more smart. Michael and Jessica are generous, enthusiastic and passionate physiotherapists who allow participants on their course to learn and develop all the skills ready to start straight away. Do not hesitate to attend a RM course and see the future of musculoskeletal physio and how to run a successful private practice. I cannot recommend this course highly enough.”
    - Cath Moore.  APA Titled Sports Physiotherapist and Successful Sydney Practice Owner
  • “The Ridgway Method is both revolutionary and mind bending.  In the first week of using the method I have completely changed my clinical practice to achieve immediate results with my patients I didn’t think possible.  I am now excited about the future of physiotherapy and encourage all to get involved.”
    - Nick Schuster, Brisbane Physiotherapist
  • They should teach this at university.  The Ridgway Method course provides an effective and easy to implement alternative to physiotherapists suffering from the drain of patients not respecting their time or service.”
    - Andrew Logan, Bundaberg Physiotherapist
  • “Prepare to think outside the box as the Ridgway Method helps you to have more job satisfaction and get more clients better more quickly.  I look forward to more physiotherapists learning about this method so we can improve the standard of our profession.  The Ridgway Method should be taught at university as well.” - Chi-Keung Lee, Brisbane Physiotherapist
  • If you already get 90-95% of clients better in no time then don’t do this course. Otherwise think about doing this course and opening up to the possibilities of fantastic results.”
    - Justin Moar, Successful Melbourne Practice Owner
