WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF US

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.
I first attended Sports and Spinal North Lakes, late last year, for a Remedial Massage with Tim. I have been coming regularly since then. The staff are lovely and welcoming, and Tim is brilliant. Always caring, genuine and dedicated, and tailor's each massage to what is needed on the day. I would definitely recommend Tim to anyone looking for a Massage Therapist.
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.
Fantastic post natal care from Montana and 10/10 remedial massage from Tim!! Beyond satisfied. Look no further :)
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 .
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!
