Dear Friends, it has been a while! We are so excited to finally launch our new website! It took us a while to fix and get everything the way we wanted. It was all worth it because we love how it turned out.
One of the most important features we added was online booking for ALL of our clinics! On our new webpage, you can now easily find our clinic locations and book online. This feature is only for private patients only.
For patients with compensable injury (care plans, ReturnToWorkSA, DVA, NDIS), please contact our clinics to book as we require specific information before we can book you in.
The new website also has a blog page about common injuries and a news section with the latest news about our clinic.
Last but not least... we have created a careers page! We are constantly looking out for talented and passionate people to join our team. Hop on to that page to have a look at current vacancies.
That's all folks! Have a look at our spanking new website and let us know what you think! Have a great week ahead#bookonline

Do you know that some children carry as much as 25-40% of their body weight in their #schoolbags? There are several reasons for the #heavy backpacks, including #sporting accessories and #music instruments as the main culprits. Inappropriate #backpack use and heavy load has been found to cause an increase in #backpain among schoolchildren.
A general rule of thumb is not to carry more than 10%-15% of the child’s body weight as beyond this level is when postural changes start to occur.
Do also ensure that if your child is having ongoing pain to seek assessment and treatment for it, as to assume the pain is due to growth can result in long term back pain for the child if left untreated.
Stay #light and #cool Friends! 😄
