Edward Yip - Principal Physiotherapist 

B AppSci (Phty) USYD APAM SMA

APA NSW Branch Councillor,

APA NSW PBA Committee Member

Edward is the Principal Physiotherapist at Balmain Physiotherapy by Sydney Allied Health Group. Having graduated from the University of Sydney, Edward is a highly experienced physiotherapist who prides himself on his ability to make a positive and long term difference in his patients’ lives. He enjoys working with patients to understand not only the cause of their musculoskeletal injuries or dysfunction but also to understand the whole individual including their interests and lifestyle. This ensures he is implementing a bespoke management plan to each patient based on his comprehensive assessment and their individual needs. 

 

He educates and works to empower you so you have a clear understanding of the root cause of the problem. He uses a range of hands-on techniques and exercise prescription and is proficient in the use of some more specialised forms of manual therapy, dry needling and joint mobilisation techniques. 


Edward has a particular interest in treating headaches, neck and jaws pain especially temporomandibular joint disorders (TMDs) but also still enjoys treating general musculoskeletal and sporting injuries. He also has extensive experience working with knees and shoulders pain patients of all age groups.

 

Outside of work, Edward enjoys reading, playing golf and cycling.
