the gold coast's best Physiotherapy

"Get treated today - Perform at 100% tomorrow"

Gold Coast Sports & Spinal are amongst the best physios in the field. Our focus on sports physiotherapy has given us an excellent understanding of the human body and has made us even better at treating musculoskeletal disorders and pain. For example if you experience pain in a specific part of your body, it could easily be referred pain from somewhere else – at Gold Coast Sports and Spinal Physio we are specialists at identifying the true source to your problem. We can resolve your chronic or recurrent injuries and prevent further injuries.

How an Appointment Goes

When you come in, our physiotherapist will ask you some questions about your injury, pain or disorder. This will help establish what the causes may be and get a better understanding of exactly what the impairment is and what path to take in treating it. We then assess your movement quality and strength. Once we have a firm understanding of your physical condition, we will get to work treating the area or areas, contributing to the pain.

This will be done using a combination of proven techniques. Each individual appointment will go differently according to the patient, their physical abilities and needs. After each appointment (if more than one is required) your physiotherapist will advise you on how to manage and care for your injury to prevent ongoing pain or further complications.

Our personal and hands-on approach, gives us the edge over our competitors. We won't leave you on machines – it's your appointment, we will be there 100% of the time.

Physio Treatment Methods

We offer the best treatment methods to treat musculoskeletal disorders and pain. Treatments such as:

  • Exercise advice
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Joint mobilisation & manipulation
  • Taping
  • Biomechanical evaluation & advice

Are you experiencing pain that keeps coming back? Some treatments can get the pain to disappear – but sometimes this is only temporary. At Gold Coast Sports and Spinal Physio we aim to find the source of your discomfort and resolve it for the long term.

We treat a wide spectrum of conditions, such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder, foot and knee injuries as well as those general aches and pains.

Give us a call or send us an enquiry – we're here to help and will gladly give you all the advice and treatment you need.

Training for something big?

Are you a dedicated and committed athlete training for excellence or an event? Skillful Physiotherapists are a must for anyone who trains hard. Hard training will inevitably lead to minor injuries that need to be treated, to make sure they're not turning into a major injury that can set you back 6 to 12 months.
