How we got started
Back in 2001 the clinic solely operated as a gait and posture clinic. They focused addressing various strains on the body that arose from poor standing and movement patterns, mainly from the feet up into the hips.
After a few years the services expanded to offer podiatric services. Complaints of ingrown toenails (can get really painful by the way), corns, calluses, and other foot specific conditions could be addressed at the clinic.
Then in late 2008 manual therapy was introduced. As a quick one liner, manual therapy addressed a lot of other complaints we frequently suffer from such as neck and back pain, shoulder and knee problems, headaches and migraines (and much more). It began with osteopathy, then chiropractic and remedial massage came on board as well.
Sydney Health & Sports Clinic is a true multi-disciplinary clinic. Services include:
- Massage Therapy
Our practitioners provide assessment and treatment to patients of all ages and sporting levels, as well as to non-athletic and workplace injury patients. We are committed to providing excellence in injury management and where appropriate, a cross discipline team approach is utilised for optimal patient outcomes. Our clinic has a long history of providing accurate diagnosis, rapid and appropriate investigations and evidence-based treatment programs, therefore we have established a reputation as a clinic of excellence.
years of experience
Why we care... we can tell you why for hours and...
Some years ago when trying to determine what area to help people in, medicine always came up in discussion. There are some areas of medicine that are disease focused. Well, we decided to take the approach of wellness instead. To be health focused. This requires one not to force the body into a certain state or force upon it something that is unnatural to it. Instead, our aim is to help the body restore homeostasis or the body's own ability to self regulate its internal environment. Rather than forcing, we encourage and guide the body to restart or stop certain mechanisms with regard to repair, awareness, neural connections etc...
For the heart there are cardiologists, for the kidneys we have renal nephrologists, for bone fractures we have surgeons. What about musculoskeletal conditions? The mode of therapy that addresses biomechanical stains in our bodies that give rise to pain from muscles, joints, and other structures is called manual therapy. They range from remedial masseurs to physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths.
We recognise that technology has come a long way in health care. Despite it all, we haven't been successful in creating a world free from pain, cancer, or death. And to be perfectly honest, it's not reasonable to expect so.
