A South Melbourne Based Physio Clinic Helping The Community Feel Better.

Many of us go out to our Local Park or recreational centre to play on a sports team with our friends. Melbourne is the sporting capital of Australia, and as such, a lot of our young men and women love to play all sorts of sports. However, sometimes things go wrong out on the field, and a player will be injured.

Our South Melbourne based physio clinic expert staff knows how frustrating not being able to play is, and we are keen to get your body back into action. Whether you play football, cricket, basketball, softball or anything else, we will look after your injury and help you through the recovery process.

The team at the Centre for Musculoskeletal Medicine aim to provide excellence in physical therapy of sporting and non-sporting muscle and joint injuries.

If you are based near St Kilda, Albert Park, Middle Park, Port Melbourne, the CBD, or anywhere in the central southern suburbs of Melbourne, even the city, our clinic in South Melbourne is only a few minutes away from you, and a great convenience.
