Welcome to Sylvania Heights Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic
What a physio can do for you:
Our staff consists of three female and one male physiotherapist who are all trained in clinical Pilates. All physios are dedicated and experienced practitioners with a thorough and ‘hands on’ approach to treatment and a vast knowledge of rehabilitation. Each physio takes one on one consultation appointments and teaches clinical Pilates sessions throughout the week.
Our professional team aim to provide the highest quality treatment and most up to date techniques to not only treat your pain and get you moving better, but educate and prescribe exercises to prevent recurrences and manage the cause of the injury.
Our physiotherapists have backgrounds in a wide variety of sports and activities including soccer, rugby league, Oz tag, AFL, netball, snow and water-skiing, golf, bowling, gymnastics, dancing, and running.
For those that are not the sporty type, our team are experts in assessments and treatment plans for postural complaints, long standing or complex pain issues, pre and post pregnancy advice, also exercise programs for balance, joint stiffness or mobility problems. We are happy to do home visits to the local area and give specific advice and exercises for clients to do safely at home.
