About Us

Rehab – right place, right team, right outcome!

Let us introduce ourselves

Sports Physio & Active Rehab (SPAR) emerged in 2012 and is a leading Physiotherapy practice located in the Macedon Ranges at Gisborne.

SPAR offers a wide range of health care options providing a quality service and expertise in sports injuries and spinal management, rehabilitation, women’s health, chronic pain and paediatrics.  The physiotherapists at SPAR have extensive elite sporting experience including managing the AFL Western Bulldogs and Essendon football clubs, elite Netball and Basketball teams along with Olympic athletes through the VIS/AIS programs.  We also provide medical support locally to the Gisborne Football Netball club.

Our women’s health team are sensitive to the often delicate nature of conditions presented.   This is especially evident in their continued commitment to training in advanced techniques and analytical assessment.

We are fortunate to have the experience of a specialist Paediatric physiotherapist who offers extended appointments at SPAR, home visits and hydrotherapy.

In addition, SPAR boasts highly skilled and accomplished myotherapy/remedial massage therapists, who have also treated at an elite level.

Our rehabilitation programs are enhanced by our proficient Pilates Instructors and our specially equipped gym.

We will support patients with Workcover or TAC claims or Medicare team care arrangements, however, there is an out of pocket expense.

SPAR is also proud sponsors of the Gisborne Football Netball Club, the Gisborne Golf Club and the Gisborne Lawn Bowls Club.

At Sports Physio & Active Rehab we pride ourselves on delivering quality evidence-based care to patients, ensuring positive functional outcomes and providing an ethical approach from an exceptional team, in everything that we do.
