WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF US

Awesome staff and great knowledge. Came here for recovery from spinal surgery and feel i have had excellent advice and care from all the staff and reception. I would recommend to all friends and family.
Such a good experience, had a lot of lower back pain and felt at ease from the minute I attended this clinic. All staff were very professional and I feel confident that I am in good hands. Thanks
Wonderful clinic and great range of services. Love the remedial massages by Di. Highly recommend!
The best treatment for my shoulder that I could possibly haveI had a really good experience and I definitely recommend this place
Highly highly recommended... I've hugely improved my back with the unlimited 3 month Pilaties classes. Alex, Michael and Bianca thanks so much!!!
The Gabba team have been brilliant in getting me ‘back’ on track. Not only finding the issue and treating it, but also giving me at home exercises to help strengthen the muscles… all on a little app! Well done team and thank you 🤗
Beth was absolutely wonderful with her sports massage. She explained what she was doing and why. Beth also let me know how I would feel the next day & how to treat any discomfort I may experience. Beth took the time with me and didn't make me feel as though she had to rush to her next patient.Thanks again!
The Kawana clinic is amazing! Such an extensive array of Pilates and exercise classes to choose from and I always feel very welcome and comfortable.
Had the most incredible massage on my upper back/shoulders/neck by Ray yesterday. Walked out felling 100%. Tension gone! Thanks Ray!!
First session so far with Aidan as my physiotherapist. As a doctor I have a reasonable amount of insight into what quality assessments and treatment plans consist of and I am very grateful to have Aidan as my physio. The administrators have also been friendly and organised. I am very happy with my experience
I would highly recommend this podiatrist. Very helpful, not rushed & explained things easily to understand. Also the reception staff are happy & helpful.
If you need Physio this branch is terrific and Carly your a dream. Tx for the top notch service.
Friendly clinic who remember your name and the practitioners really care
I’ve been going to Paul Fien and his team at St Lucia Sports and Spinal for over 20 years. Whether it be lower back issues, hips or any sports activity mobility issues, this practice will get you moving freely again.
All my injuries were dealt with totally experienced physiotherapy (Liam) and controlled my pain.
I went in for back pain. After therapy, l noticed immediately the pain gone and have stayed pain-free ever since. It's been 4 weeks since the 1st visit. I highly recommend a visit for your whatever problem. Worth the try?
Thank you KimYou are the best in Qld
This was my first visit here. I saw Alex, I highly recommend him as he has a lovely demeanor and makes you feel comfortable immediately.He educated me and the treatment he provided has had results only hours after.I will be back.Kim Ford
I have been very pleased with my overall experience. The physiotherapist has taken the time to personalise treatment for me. I highly recommend this place.
I went there for some help with my right knee before operation.
Podiatrist Joel Erskine is absolutely brilliant. His kindness and gentle nature with my 9yo son was exceptional. My son was really worried about having treatment to his plantar warts. Joel has been able to reassure him with age appropriate explanations along the way. Highly recommended.
I have been attending Sports and Spinal since it opened here. I have a chronic pain issue and have liaised with many admin staff/physiotherapists/EP/remedial massage and podiatry over the years. I’ve always been treated by staff well knowing my personality intrinsically and the fact I have a background of adverse healthcare. I love using the gym area it’s been a godsend since I injured myself in 2011. Highly recommended.
Had a remedial massage from Kristi and I can't recommend her enough. Put me at ease immediately and I left feeling 10x better.
I injured my ankle (it was bad), and I really thank Nita for all her help and support. I was back to full strength in five weeks with full mobility
I have been visiting this clinic for a few years now and have never been disappointed, always accomodating and happy to help. The care and service by Nick and Marina is exceptional and I always leave feeling brand new!
Cannot recommend Nigel more. He is so understanding and kind. Helped me with my acute stress and neck pain. I appreciate him immensely.
I have been brilliantly treated for over 2 years by Adrian the best ever Masseur.Simply The Best, Better Than All The Rest,Better Than Anyone, Better Than Anyone my Body has ever met.Seriously as a mature age person, with some difficult medical & physical issues, having had Massages once a week even, for many years, Ado is so Caring, Experienced, Knowledgeable, In Tune with my Body & Mind's, needs & wants, & devotes himself to ensuring one gets the BEST Treatment ever, everytime. Thanks Adrian, you keep me going. B
Hands down the best therapist on the Gold Coast. I’ve been going to Adrian every week for 3 years. He understands the body in a way that will ruin you for other therapists.
The whole experience here was 5-star! All the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, I received a massage from Destiny for shoulder/neck pain and knee tendonitis and she was extremely helpful in both areas, always checking if the pressure was okay with very targetted massage techniques, she was also willing to give advice on the best recovery methods, I feel significantly better now! I've had remedial massages my entire life and this has easily yielded the best results, I will be returning for any problem areas and general maintenance!!! HIGHLY recommend!
Thank you Jacob for the explanation and teach me the treatmentHighly recommend
Thanks to Alex I felt positive about everything he recommended me to do to improve my lower back.The results where due to my age better than I expected!.I’d recommend Alex to anyone who have lower back problems, because mine is on the mend.
Booked a podiatrist appointment last week at late notice. Scheduled it for the same day appointment was on time reception and specialist both very friendly and even though I had booked a 30 Min appointment only charged me for a 20 min appointment as that's all the time it took. Would definitely recommend
Mark and team are the best physio's in the Bay!
Briony strikes me as a seriously competent and effective healer. I highly recommend.
Fantastic post natal care from Montana and 10/10 remedial massage from Tim!! Beyond satisfied. Look no further :)
Amazing! Professional! Experienced! Reception are fantastic facility is perfect. Culture is family based and supportive. Tim is a fantastic physiotherapiist who is educated and passionate
This place is fantastic. Have only had 2 sessions with Anna but noticed such a big improvement after just the first. So glad I can across this place, I won’t got anywhere else for remedial massage.
My husband attended Sports and spinal Springfield and found the Cielo and the staff to be very thorough and understanding. Great follow up appointments and access to exercises. Would highly recommend.
Bianca has been my treating EP for some time now, she's helped me achieve my goals since surgery. I couldn't have asked for anyone better!The reception staff are always friendly and understanding.Highly recommend. 🙂
I have been working with Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy Woolloongabba since my illness from late 2020. They've helped me almost two years whenever I had a setbacks and very helpful and flexible while undertaking my individual circumstances. Highly recommend 👌
Excellent massage with Adrian today. It was up there with the best ive ever had.
After an industrial accident I needed physio and after using this place a few years ago , which was satisfactory, i again went there .I got Kim as my physio and after her exercise regime for me and her magical hands I was able to obtain movement that allowed me to get going far sooner than I expected.I highly recommend Sports and Spinal for any treatment and through my experience they are the best .
Great first session with my physio.
After struggling with headaches and lower back pain, I started seeing Massage Therapist, Destiny Fountain at the St Lucia clinic. She has been brilliant in being able to pinpoint the source of the pain, providing effective treatment, and exercises to help alleviate future issues.I can't recommend her treatment highly enough.
Nigel has been very helpful with me overcoming a condition that plagued me for years!
Lovely people and very helpful
Very friendly place
Very experienced and explains why and what they are going to do to you
Great facility, had the best massage from Ray , highly recommend her
I saw Corey Prior for a torn disc in my lower back and continue to go back for any flare ups or other Injuries.He has been brilliant, i was nervous that my back would never be the same again but sure enough when I finished my 3 month program i was painfree and felt stronger than I ever have before.

✨GUT HEALTH MONTH ✨

One of the ways we can support a healthy gut is to increase our variety of plant-based foods high in fibre and antioxidants. Fibre is essential for gut health as it promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria which has been shown to support brain health, mood, nutrient absorption and digestion, reducing inflammation and also reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases.

In this reel our Dietician Georgia shares her top 5 gut-friendly snack options for when you’re on the go.

VEGIE STICKS + HUMMUS
Aim for a variety of coloured fruit and veg! Boost fibre by adding a side of carrots or baby cucumber to your usual snacks – this small change can reduce your risk of chronic disease development by 30%!

NUTS
Gut bacteria feed on the prebiotic fibre found in nuts resulting in the production of short chain fatty acid Butyrate- higher levels of Butyrate is associated with improved mood, gut motility and better appetite control.

TUNA & BARLEY
Barley is an essential wholegrain that can also help to reduce cholesterol levels. Mixed snacks containing tuna & wholegrains is a delicious and filling snack high in protein and fibre.

LEGUMES
1/3 cup cooked legumes (chickpeas, lentils, blackbeans) provide up to 10% daily fibre requirements! Munch on some roasted chickpeas or throw a can of lentils into your spaghetti bolognaise 

WHOLEGRAIN CRACKERS
Wholegrains provide important source of magnesium, iron, iodine, zinc, B vitamins and vitamin E. They also contain important source of insoluble fibre which can help manage constipation!
