Facilities

At SportsTec Clinic we take injury management seriously. As such, we have created a space for clients to work with our physiotherapists and exercise physiologists to optimise rehabilitation, as well as strength and conditioning.

Pilates studio rehabilitation We have a Pilates studio set up for personalised one on one sessions, small group reformer and mat classes. Pilates is a great way to safely and slowly rehabilitate all patients from injury, including those who are currently inactive or injured. Pilates is also suitable for those looking to strengthen and condition, including elite level athletes and dancers.  Our studio has three reformer beds, a wundachair, and a trapeze table.

gym exercise physiology and physio The gym is constantly being updated with new equipment to ensure our clients and patients have the highest quality resources for rehabilitation, strength and conditioning. Our physiotherapists and exercises physiologists can work with you to ensure you’re able to perform exercises with correct technique.

Our gym area includes a sprung dance floor for assessment of dance injury. This enables the Physiotherapist to assess technique that may have caused the injury, or to help the dancer modify their dancing to manage their return to dance.

Our gym has exercise bikes and a treadmill that we use for a number of functions including biomechanical analysis. Below you can see our resident exercise physiologist Nicole in the initial stages of a running gait assessment with a Canberra United Academy athlete following injury that required surgery.
