WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF US

Highly recommend the practitioners here. I received excellent physio treatment and advice from Poonam for some pretty chronic back & knee pain. And the group Pilates is also very good.
Great experience! Friendly and helpful office staff, professional practitioner, outcomes have exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much Sports and Spinal.
Cielo and the team are absolutely amazing! I saw Cielo to get physio on a shoulder I could hardly move and after the appointment she gave me exercises to not only help the issue but strengthen the area to avoid this happening again. She's also an absolutely wonderful person! I also got a massage from Kristi and besides being extremely friendly, I felt amazing afterwards. Special mention to Pauline in Reception who is always friendly and welcoming. Would give 10 stars if I could!!!
Started here in March seeing Damien (physiotherapist) who is fantastic, and started doing pilates and gym a short time later with Damien, Piumi and Georgia and have loved every minute of it. Massages from Kristi are amazing and Erika at the front desk is always welcoming and friendly. I've found the whole team to be knowledgeable, friendly and compassionate at all times, and they are always working with me to help me reach my goals. 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.
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
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.
Cannot recommend Sports & Spinal Springfield more highly. I’ve seen Cielo, Claire and Pumi for physio and Kirsty for massage and they have all been fantastic. The at home exercises and after care have also been really helpful to minimise my soreness both pre and post natally. Will definitely be returning again. Thank you so much team!
Had a knee issue for over a year following the COVID break. Went to Sports and Spinal and received some simple exercises to complete. After a month or two my knee was better and was able tor run pain free again. Fantastic staff, solved my problem, and gave simple explanations to follow at home.
Great service with lovely staff very friendly and accommodating.
I've seen a few of the practitioners here and I could not recommend them highly enough! They go above and beyond to make sure your needs are met!! You are always made to feel welcomed from the moment you step in the door and greeted with a friendly smile from the receptionist!!!

March marks ‘March Into Yellow’ which a campaign aimed at raising awareness about endometriosis and it’s prevalence in Australian women 💛

Endometriosis affects women differently, but it is commonly known to cause severe, life-impacting pain during periods, sexual intercourse, bowel movements and/or urination, chronic pelvic pain, abdominal bloating, nausea, fatigue, and sometimes depression, anxiety, and infertility. 

Roughly, 1 in 9 Australian females develop endometriosis. 

Early diagnosis and treatment to help manage endo symptoms is best practice. The women’s health team at Sports & Spinal can help to manage common endo symptoms.

✨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!
