WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF US

Sports & Spinal North Lakes comes highly recommended. I have attended this clinic 3 times a week for the past 5 months and everyday I’m greeted with a smile and great service. They have a great understanding of how to manage DVA clients which is fantastic and allows Vets to focus on their rehabilitation and reaching their goals.Thanks Sports & Spinal North Lakes for your continued support in my long recovery.🦉
I was recommended sports and spinal from a friend after I had suffered a dislocated shoulder outside of work and needed to get back to my job (carpentry) as soon as possible.I can't recommend these guys enough. With the treatment, exercises, mobile app and the extensive knowledge that the staff passed on I was able to get back to work and strengthen my shoulder more than I thought was possible post injury.100% will be going back if needed and will be telling everyone who needs to see a physio about them.
I have been so impressed by these guys that I thought I would write a detailed review re my experience with North LakeI damaged my back in a severe parachuting accident whilst serving in the Army, after 20 years of frustration, back pain and dealing with DVA and other health professionals I decided to seek the assistance of the staff at North lakes after being recommended to me by a friend.Due to injuries to my L2/3,3/4 and 4/5 vertebrae a program was developed, under the referral of my GP, to strengthen my core strength to support and mitigate the effects of my permanent disability.Over the last few months I have been regularly seeing Emily and Zac as my Exercise Physiologists, with focused on in improving my core strength, and Montana as my primary Physiotherapist who monitors my progress, overall plan and helps in recovery from my sessions with Emily and Zac. I am impressed on how all three communicate about my plan and goals and the feed back provided to me and my GP. I do love how they remember the personal things you discuss with them which provides a very personalised experience & service. Even admin support from Jess re appointments referrals is prompt, professional and friendly.As such I can not recommend these guys enough, having had multiple other service providers, I can categorically say that it has been 20 years since my lower back has felt so good.My most sincere thanks, it has been a game changer for me, which will allow me to start playing sport and live a more active lifestyle. In particular I would recommend to my fellow Vets on either white or gold cards.
Simon has done a great job in treating my tennis elbow.
Lovely people and very helpful
I had my first (of many) appointments here today, and instantly I was greeted by a very pleasant receptionist. My physio worked really well with me, and asked me lots of questions to effectively locate my pain and the ultimate diagnosis of my back injury. She was so pleasant, and listened to all my feedback. I definitely felt like my injury and my feelings surrounding it were highly valued!

Do you know what MS is? How does it affect the human body? Can it be treated? Let us explain 👇⁠
⁠
🧠 Multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the most common diseases of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Today, 2.8 million people around the world have MS.⁠
⁠
🧠 MS is an inflammatory demyelinating condition. It is caused by damage to myelin – a fatty material that insulates nerves. In MS, the loss of myelin affects the way nerves conduct electrical impulses to and from the brain. Symptoms can include blurred vision, weak limbs, tingling sensations, unsteadiness, memory problems, and fatigue.⁠
⁠
🧠 Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40. MS is two to three times more common in women than in men. There is no drug that can cure MS, but treatments are available which can modify the course of the disease.⁠
⁠
The Sports & Spinal team can help those with MS. Get in touch with our team today to learn more ⁠

Exercise Right Week 🏃‍♂️⁠
⁠
Exercise is vital for women across all stages of life.⁠
⁠
Not only is being active important for your physical and mental health, but it can also play a crucial role when dealing with a range of women’s health conditions. ⁠
⁠
Our women's health and exercise physiology team can assist with exercise prescription and education. Needing some help? ⁠
⁠
Contact our team today 💻
Exercise Right Week 🏃‍♂️⁠
⁠
How does exercise help with mental health? ⁠
⁠
There is ample evidence that suggests exercise is an effective treatment method for people suffering from acute and chronic mental illness.⁠
⁠
Exercise can make a big difference in mood and needs to be a fundamental part of mental health treatment. Even one workout a week is known to have great benefits.⁠
⁠
Exercise can also counteract the side effects of some medications such as reducing the risk of falling by strengthening muscles and helping control body weight and blood pressure.⁠
⁠
If you need help with getting more exercise into your life contact your nearest SSP exercise physiologist 💪
Exercise Right Week 🏃‍♂️⁠
⁠
Exercise Right Week is aimed at encouraging all Australians to be more active and to know where to get the *right* advice when it comes to moving more.⁠
⁠
This year’s theme is Exercise for the Right Reasons. Why?⁠
⁠
Because a lot of the dialogue in the health and fitness industry turns exercise into a chore or punishment. It pushes exercise as merely a weight-loss tool or a way to create an “ideal” body. This can create a negative relationship between our minds and movement. We want to change that.⁠
⁠
This Exercise Right Week, we want to highlight some of the incredible physical, mental, and social health benefits of exercise (that have NOTHING to do with the number on the scale!)

Saturday marked National Cheese Day! 🧀⁠
⁠
We all love a little bit (or a lot!) of cheese in our diets but sometimes cheese can come with the stigma that it's not good for us. To help clear that myth up, Sports & Spinal Dietitian Caitlin has weighed in on what she thinks about cheese in our diets 👇⁠
⁠
Cheese Pros:⁠
 🧀 Good source of protein and calcium⁠
 🧀 Lots of different types that can be used for different things⁠
 🧀 Hard cheeses are low in lactose so are still suitable for people with lactose intolerance⁠
⁠
Things to be mindful of:⁠
 🧀 Can be more energy-dense, so you may like to choose lite options depending on your nutrition goals⁠
 🧀 Need to be mindful of food safety when including them in sandwiches/salads/other dishes⁠
🧀 Need to keep cold with an ice brick in a cool bag when at school or work if you don't have access to a fridge⁠
⁠
If you need help with their cheese intake or diet get in touch with your local Sports & Spinal team today!
World Hygiene Day 🤝⁠
⁠
This year's theme for World Hand Hygiene Day is focused on recognizing that we can add to a facility's safety culture and quality through cleaning our hands but also that a strong quality and safety culture will encourage people to clean their hands at the right times and with the right products.⁠
⁠
Sports & Spinal prides itself on instilling high hygiene standards across all our practices and services. We take hygiene seriously 🧼⁠
⁠
