Our Podiatrist Kent Sweeting recently flew down to NSW and gave a lecture to the final year students at the University of Western Sydney. His lecture was all about Adult Acquired Flatfoot and Ankle Foot Orthoses. 

Our resident Sports Physiotherapist Chari was invited along to the Reds Rugby Gala Ball Dinner where she was awarded for her contribution to Queensland Womens' Rugby in both the 7's and XV's versions of the game as well as the Womens/Girls Development 7's Academy.

This months feature is on our up and coming Back Strengthening Clinic!
