Many of our physiotherapists are leaders in their fields and are involved with medical specialist clinics such as:
– Sunshine Coast Shoulder Clinic with Dr Mark Welsh
Sports & Spinal Practice Partner, Simon Burley runs the Sunshine Coast Shoulder Clinic with some of the Coast’s leading orthopaedic surgeons.
“The shoulder is a complex and challenging joint that is very reliant on the surrounding musculature working properly. Hence a joint particularly suited to physiotherapy treatment when injured or painful.”
Dr Peter Georgius, Dr Scott Masters and Sports & Spinal’s Sean Campbell run the Sunshine Spine Multidisciplinary Clinic. Sunshine Spine is a pioneering Multidisciplinary Clinic where patients with spinal disorders and pain will be thoroughly assessed by a Musculoskeletal Physician and Spinal Rehabilitation Physiotherapist. Sunshine Spine is a “one stop shop” to implement the optimal management plan for complex spinal pain patients.
