- WHAT My CLIENTS SAY -
"In a lifetime consumed by a love of sport, I have suffered many injuries for which I have been treated by a number of physiotherapists, both in Australia and the UK. In my experience, they have all been extremely competent and have helped my recovery from injury. However, my first visit to Fergus was a real revelation. He demonstrated great attention to detail, went to great lengths to explain the physiology of my rotator cuff injury and adopted a very comprehensive but common sense approach to treatment. I have seen a number of physiotherapists for a recurring rotator cuff problem and, after one visit to Fergus, I have total confidence in his skills and professionalism. I would highly recommend his services."

"Ferg’s pro-active approach to rehabilitation has seen me get through innumerable injuries over the years and kept me playing rugby until I was 40. By insisting that you, as the patient, have to be committed to fully participate in the rehabilitation process is the key to his effectiveness. Now as a coach, I rely on Ferg to get my players back on the field. He is an integral part of our team."
- John Davaine | COACH, Mosman Rugby Club
"It's not like it's expensive. I was surprised it only cost me $15."
-Scott Biffin | CREMORNE
- Luke Marley | CREMORNE
"I am happy to recommend Fergus as a physio. I first had a consultation with Fergus after a shoulder injury, and just recently for an ankle injury. Fergus is not just about temporary fixes. He suggests exercises and lifestyle changes to assist with recovery. I find Fergus to be extremely professional. His extensive knowledge, explaining why the injury exists, combined with hands on experience, certainly assisted me with a full recovery in a short time."
- Michelle Alchian | WILLOUGHBY
"I first met Fergus in March 2009 to treat a severe pain in my leg after having a biopsy on my thigh. The pain was intensifying, burning, and radiating down my leg. After having suffered for two months and seen other doctors with little hope given, I was fortunate enough to come under the expert, considerate and healing hands of Fergus Tilt. The relief from pain after just one personalized hands on treatment was incredible! I felt confident and reassured that my recovery would be excellent. Fergus was able to think outside the square, create a truly personalized exercise program and use a variety of rehabilitation techniques to ensure my full and rapid recovery. I knew that I had found someone I could trust to make a difference to my health enabling me to enjoy life again. Without any reservation, I highly recommend Fergus to anyone seeking professional and effective physiotherapy treatment."

"I went to Fergus after having foot reconstruction surgery. Fergus has a very pleasant manner and a direct, no nonsense approach. In our first session Fergus wanted a clear indication of my expectations and the outcomes that I wanted. At the end of my first session I felt very confident in his ability to help in my rehabilitation. His surgery is well equipped, comfortable and has a practical layout."
- Allan Morehen | MOSMAN
"I would like to say a big thanks for treating my sore knee. After your thorough synopsis of my knee and two treatments, I was in a position to run my first ever ½ marathon which I am proud to say I successfully completed comfortably and in good time. Had you not treated me correctly and so thoroughly it would have been impossible for me to even attempt a 21km run. I would not hesitate in recommending you to others, I truly appreciated your professionalism and your skill."
"Fergus has helped me with a number of running injuries. He understands what running means to me & provides the necessary treatment & exercises in order to sort out my discomfort.

"I came across Ferg through the Mosman Whales rugby club. Ferg acts as the club physio and is responsible for looking after all of the players at matches. Throughout the season I've had a number of niggles which he's always strapped brilliantly on game day. As the season has worn on I've picked up a more serious shin and ankle issue for which Ferg has treated me. Ferg has been great to deal with, he is incredibly knowledgable, he really cares about his patients and puts in the time to understand and get to the root of the issue. He has treated me using a range of methods and this treatment has really helped me to keep playing. I'd thoroughly recommend Ferg."
- Christian O'Kelly | NEUTRAL BAY

Great guy and great Physio - highly recommended."

- Richard Carter | MOSMAN
"During several seasons with Mosman Rugby, Ferg's expert strapping ability ensured that I made it through each game with my various limbs intact and/or in the correct locations on my body at the end of the game. It was also incredibly reassuring to know that a first aid master like Ferg was on the sideline and only several seconds away from you should anything go wrong on the pitch. Over the past 2 years, Ferg has managed my rehabilitation following both of my shoulders being reconstructed. With a combination of ultrasound, massage, dry needling and Kinesio strapping, as well as exercise programs tailored specifically for my needs and goals, I can confidently say that my rehabilitation and full recovery would not have been possible without Ferg. I would not hesitate to recommend Ferg's services to my friends, family and acquaintances."
- Peter Debney | MILSONS POINT
"I hurt myself in the gym at least once every three months. Fergus's knowledge of sporting injuries and experience working with athletes made Fit As A Physio the obvious choice for me. The prices are reasonable as well... Fergus has been my go to guy for over a year now and has been my secret weapon for getting back to 100% ASAP. I'm confident in recommending Fit As A Physio to anyone."
- Angus Walker | MOSMAN
- Jake Alder | CREMORNE
"I visited Fergus Tilt to receive treatment for two injuries. As a result of his treatment, I am now free of pain and am able to continue my normal activities, pain free. I found the services provided to be very professional, very up to date and very worthwhile. I would recommend Fergus to anyone seeking high quality professional care."
- Phil Haren | CREMORNE
"I had a plate and several pins put into the top of my tibia after a fall from a ladder, and I didn’t rate my chances of walking without a limp very highly. After only a couple of visits to Fergus, I was off the walking frame and onto a stick, and after a couple more visits, no stick at all! Now I’m up and about as normal and back to playing bowls. I cannot recommend Fergus more highly. He is very professional and skilled, reliable, encouraging and, most of all, he is supportive and a really nice guy. You can rely on his professionalism and quality treatments. I wouldn’t think of going to any other physio."
- Loyce Davis | MOSMAN
"I first went to Fergus in Feb-March of 2013 suffering from a rotator cuff injury from weight training. I was due to compete for a comp in April and needed to keep training. Fergus was great to deal with and the injury healed enough in time to continue training for my comp, Through his advice and work I am now back to lifting the same weight I could prior to my injury. I would recommend Fergus to my friends and family."
- Bethany Ross | NEUTRAL BAY
"I wanted to find a physio who was used to dealing with athletes and might understand the needs of my sport and activity - I do some trail running and compete internationally in powerlifting. I tried Fergus because of his connection to Mosman Rugby and because I saw testimonial from other people over 40 who were still active in a sport. I appreciated the way he sought to understand my sport and my hamstring issues, then explained the problem and came up with a treatment plan. It's easy to see he doesn't have a one-size-fits-all approach - he summed up my needs, habits, situation and worked with them. As both a health & fitness writer and a Commonwealth champion powerlifter, I appreciated the manner in which Fergus explained my hamstring issue and went through the treatment plan, all the while showing that he understands the problems, needs and temptations of the athlete."
- Dominic Cadden | KURRABA POINT
"I found Fergus online after moving to Sydney from interstate. He made me feel at ease with his professionalism and knowledge.

He was fantastic in assessing my problem and getting me back on track. I would highly recommend him."
- Regan Shepherd | CREMORNE

- Sam Monaghan | MOSMAN
"I met Ferg through Mosman Rugby Club. Given the nature of playing rugby, injuries were inevitable. When required, Ferg was easily accessible and when being treated by him, I felt very comfortable, trusting and found him to be very professional. His knowledge is vast and he has always managed to get me back out on the park in no time. There isn't any other physio I would recommend other than Ferg."
- John Swanson | NEUTRAL BAY
- Angus Sutherland | MOSMAN
"Ferg, who was highly recommended by a mate of mine, was very clear and direct in diagnosing the problem with my shoulder. He was also very honest in recommending the amount of physio I required, which didn't sound excessive. I was very impressed with his professionalism."
- Andrew Boniface | WOLLSTONECRAFT
"Fit As A Physio is a pleasure to visit. Fergus has a thorough understanding of my needs by asking the right questions and then recommending the corrective treatment we will take. As a daily ‘physical exercise’ fanatic, getting out and feeling 100% about my body is critical to my physical and mental well-being. And further, as age creeps up, it is essential to get the right treatment – sprains, muscle stress and aches seem to last that little longer now-a-days. I will be recommending Fergus to anyone needing a good physio. 1st class service!"
- Martin Skipper | MOSMAN
"Over the years, I have seen Fergus on numerous occasions for treatment on a variety of injuries from small niggles to potentially season ending ones. Regardless of the problem, Fergus' has a great ability to understand the injury, ensure you appreciate the extent of the problem yourself and in providing the appropriate treatment include simple and practical exercises you can easily do to help yourself. All of these things combined have helped me get back on the field of play as soon as practical each time. I cannot recommend Fergus and Fit As A Physio more highly."
- Steve Watson | CREMORNE

- Priscilla Dickason | MOSMAN
"Apart from running a full time Physio, Ferg manages and looks after the Mosman Whales Rugby team. Due to the nature of the sport I have encountered just about every form of injury known to man. I have been treated by many different Physios over the past 10 years but none of them with the experience and knowledge that Ferg has. His sound advice, knowledge and skills have kept me on the field for the whole season and in better shape than I have ever been. His passion for people and the industry is what sets him apart from the rest. If you want something fixed and fixed properly, Ferg and Fit As A Physio is the place for you."
- Davyn De Bruyn | MOSMAN
"Excellent, plain and simple. I have been playing full contact sport my entire life and have run the complete gambit of minor/major injuries, needless to say I have spent my fair share of time on a physio table.

- Scott Pelletier | CREMORNE
