Welcome to the BGAL Physiotherapy Website.
BGAL Physiotherapy was founded by Petrina Burnett in 2009 with the vision to provide leading, innovative and holistic quality cancer care through the cancer pathway. BGAL Physiotherapy has come to be known as a leading oncology physiotherapy practice in WA providing holistic, comprehensive, individualised and evidence based, quality cancer care.
At the time of her diagnosis with breast cancer in 2007, Petrina realised cancer physiotherapy services weren’t readily available to help her rehabilitate back to optimal health, for both her day to day and high level sporting activities. She set about establishing a service to help others return to optimal physical, psychological and emotional health by offering high quality cancer physio education, therapy, management strategies and exercise interventions.
Over the twelve years, the BGAL team has grown from Petrina as a "one women band" to now include 5 allied health therapists, Veronica, Berit, Akiko, Rachael and Loretta and administration staff, Hana and Gillian. We have cared for over 4000 people diagnosed with cancer and remain especially committed to providing excellent care.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, BGAL now offers both face to face consultations and telehealth services according the the needs and preferences of our patients. If you have any questions, please contact us using the Contact Us page or call us on 6162 2964.
Petrina has also recently published a book about her BRCA1 breast cancer story called "It's Not (Just) About the Breast." It is available for $20 at BGAL Physio or online at www.wellstrongcourage.com - an e-book will also soon be available on Amazon Kindle Stores.
