MPPFG Background & Foundations

In 1992, Greg Cunningham, sole owner of Windsor Spinal and Sport Physiotherapy Centre, was joined by colleagues – Vale – Wendy Braybon, Chris Constantinou and Jane Banting to form a partnership.

The newly created partnership centred on the Maitland based post-graduate qualifications that all four partners had completed. The post-graduate course was not only globally recognised but also attracted full fee paying Physiotherapist from around the world. Their vision was to deliver the highest standard of care that was commensurate with their post-graduate training. The partnership quickly developed a reputation for standards that met the needs of elite athletes and leading medical specialists.

A number of successful affiliations include the Australian Olympic Team, AFL (VFL) clubs Footscray and Melbourne, former National Soccer League teams Heidelberg United and South Melbourne Hellas, Socceroo’s Physiotherapy Panel, State and National Softball Teams and a number of leading school and amateur sporting teams and individual athletes.


In 1999, the practice was renamed The Melbourne Physiotherapy Group. The practice had grown in this time and established the Melbourne Pilates and Fitness Group in 2003 – a state of the art facility that provided Clinical Pilates, Exercise Physiology, Athletic Development Coaching as well as Physiotherapy and Massage services. In 2013 the practice moved to its current location at St Kilda Junction. This allowed the two former practices and sites to merge under the one location and become Melbourne Physiotherapy, Pilates + Fitness Group.

Chris and Greg understand the needs of the patients they deal with, be they an elite, aspiring or greying athlete “weekend warrior”, C.E.O, or busy mother. The need to lead an active life and be your best resonates strongly with the personality of the Directors and the competitive environment of today’s busy world – on and off the sporting field!

They are proud to lead a talented team of associates who share the ideals that they have practiced for over 40 years.”
