Bellbird Sports and Spinal is located in the Bellbird medical precinct of Blackburn South and has been servicing the eastern suburbs of Melbourne for over 40 years.
They offer a wide range of services including Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, Clinical Pilates, Myotherapy/Remedial Massage, Podiatry and Hydrotherapy. Their experienced practitioners work with all age groups and fitness levels.
Bellbird Sports & Spinal have been running regular hydrotherapy classes for almost 20 years. In 2015 they started running their hydrotherapy sessions at the warm water pool at Aqualink Box Hill.
The physiotherapists from Bellbird Sports & Spinal use the physical properties of water to facilitate peoples’ recovery from a broad range of conditions. Notable examples are:
- Lower limb and upper limb fractures
- Following joint reconstruction or replacement
- Spinal surgery
- Acute and chronic back and neck pain
- Poor trunk stability
- Arthritic conditions
The water unloads joints and bones allowing an earlier return to exercise. Under the direction of a physiotherapist the water can be used to provide a smooth graduated resistance that allows rehabilitating patients to exercise with increased confidence.
