Lexington Physiotherapy was founded in 2011 by Director and Physiotherapist Benjamin Black.
After graduating from University, Ben had worked in a number of private practices and hospitals in the North West of Sydney before deciding to establish his own practice. He had a passion to develop his own business and a reputation of delivering ethical treatment standards.
The primary aim of Lexington Physio is to educate our patients on self-management strategies and prevention of recurrent injuries. Our assessments are designed to identify the cause of your problem and treatments are tailored specifically for you.
What makes us different from the rest?
We provide a personalised service to our patients by offering 1 hour Initial consultations and 30-40 minute follow up appointments.
We understand that communication is the most fundamental aspect of improving a patient’s health and therefore our clients are given an understanding of their diagnosis, cause and treatment options. We liaise frequently with your referring GP, Surgeon or Specialist and update them on your progress and future treatment plans.
All physiotherapy treatments involve manual therapy, biomechanical corrections, plus a combination of stretching and strength exercises.
Clinically, research has shown that ultrasound and interferential treatment is not of greater effectiveness than the above, and hence we focus primarily on more active treatment. We have a state of the art gym and rehabilitation equipment on site, to assist in getting you back to feeling your best sooner.

After experiencing injuries first hand, Tom has a greater appreciation for preventative measures and comprehensive screenings to reduce occurrence of injury. Having two vastly different sporting passions being golf and ice hockey, Tom is consistently finding ways to better your game through maximising power, flexibility and efficiency.
