Online Dietitian &
Nutrition Consults

Sports & Spinal are proud to announce we offer online video consulting for our Dietitian and Nutrition service. We are a trusted provider of nutrition therapy using top quality, reliable online video consulting.

Online nutrition consulting was born from the goal of making dietitian consultations easier and more accessible for those that have difficulty attending clinic based consultations, whether it’s because you live too far away, work extended hours or are simply pushed for time.

Online Dietitian & Nutrition consulting allows you to receive the same expert nutrition advice, support and accountability to achieve your health or nutrition goals, all from the comfort of your own home, office or wherever is convenient for you!
The consultations run in the same way as a regular Dietitian consultation, using a fully-featured video consulting system to allow you to receive the same face-to-face in-clinic experience. Features include document sharing for any relevant resources or dietary plans, plus a screen sharing feature so that we can go through your dietary plan and any educational resources together. Best of all, it is a completely web-based solution without the need for software or downloads. To start the video consultation, all you need to do is click the link provided in your appointment reminder.

Many barriers can stop an individual from attending an appointment within a private practice. They may include time constraints, finances and embarrassment. Our Online Dietitians are trained to see clients inside the clinic as well as online. We can guarantee the best level of care for all patients by allowing online consultations.

Sports & Spinal’s Dietitians have many roles including;
• Assessing nutritional needs.
• Developing personalised eating plans that consider medical conditions as well as personal circumstances.
• Provide education on healthy eating, shopping, eating out and preparing meals at home.

Our experts will get to the source of your symptoms working with you to address your goals and prescribe dietary treatments for many conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancers, gastrointestinal diseases and obesity. We will always keep you informed and involved in the management of your health journey.
Our Dietitian’s areas of expertise: Eating Disorders, Weight Loss/Gain, Bariatric Surgery, Type 1/2 Diabetes, Food Allergies/Intolerances, Digestive Issues, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Coeliac Disease, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Women’s Health, Pregnancy + Lactation, Fatty Liver Disease, Anaemia, PCOS and Heart Disease.

Our dietitians are registered with The Dietitians Association of Australia and health fund rebates and bulk-billing are available.
