Physiotherapy in Canberra

Welcome to The Sports Medicine Centre

The Sports Medicine Centre is the longest standing physiotherapy practice in Canberra.  The Sports Medicine Centre provides high quality physiotherapy to both athletes and non-athletes in and around Canberra – from the most elite to the school cross-country runner or morning jogger.  

Our hands-on approach to providing high quality physiotherapy treatment involves assessing the underlying causes to joint, muscle, tendon, ligament and nerve injuries and providing effective and appropriate treatment. 

We use a wide range of established physiotherapy techniques to relieve pain, restore movement and prevent further problems. 

Physiotherapy techniques include:

  • Joint Mobilisation
  • Soft Tissue Massage
  • Muscle Energy Techniques
  • Dry Needling
  • Ultrasound
  • Interferential
  • Taping & Strapping
  • Kinesio Taping
  • Stretching & Strengthening Exercises
  • Pilates Exercises
  • Individualised Home Exercise Programs

We work closely with other Canberra health professionals, such as medical practitioners, sports physicians, orthopaedic specialists and podiatrists to ensure that you receive the best possible management.
