We Are Lime

Our Passion is Change! In 2013, Lime Physical Therapy, a clinic focused on cancer rehabilitation and lymphoedema management came to life in North Lakes, Brisbane, catering for the many different needs of cancer patients, survivors and their carers.

Lime has expanded over its five year lifespan to now embrace many skilled practitioners. Our Physiotherapists are experienced not only in general musculoskeletal conditions – back and neck pain, headaches, joint and muscle injuries but also Cancer Rehabilitation, Lymphoedema Management, Pre and Post Natal concerns and Pelvic Health. We also offer Physio-led Pilates classes.

Our well-rounded team also includes a Physiokey Therapist, Remedial Massage Therapist, and a Yoga Instructor , who are all dedicated to helping you address your individual needs and health goals.




Lime Physical Therapy

The Lime Story

Lime– the colour and the fruit are both fresh and gave us a great colour scheme that is the talk of first time visitors to the clinic.

Physical– treatment includes some physical activity and taking action on your goals in whatever capacity you are able.

Therapy– treatment includes some “down” time as we assist your body physically and emotionally to cope with what you have been dealt by life.

Heart Infinity Logo – infinite possibilities for approaching life balance, using gratitude with a sincere heart and individualizing treatment plans to address your own needs.

This is Who we Are

So many people have asked “Why Lime?” so we thought we would share the meaning behind our name and our logo. Coming up with a business name can be a lengthy and frustrating process, not least of which is finding a name that you are happy with and which is not already taken!  During this process, and taking into consideration the concept of the clinic and our approach to our patients, we realized we wanted to convey: A fresh approach using gratitude as the cornerstone of our daily interactions – A balance of both receiving treatment and also taking action as patients become empowered with knowledge – infinite possibilities for treatment and approach to life balance.

2012Lime Physical Therapy was founded in North Lakes by Lorna Golombick.
2015We grew to a 5 therapist business offering expanded services and hours.
2018We offer a multi-skilled team comprising Physiotherapists, a Remedial Massage Therapist, a Physiokey/Scenar Therapist, and a Yoga instructor. We share a passion for holistic care and an attitude of gratitude.
