  • The clinic is a unique source of help and information. From Dr Cheng and Todd Starr at the top to the wonderful women on the reception desk I have found nothing but help and support. The people are well trained, knowledgeable and very approachable. The exercise classes are really helpful for strengthening and flexibility. I recently had stem cell injected into my knee and I feel as though the results are very encouraging. The follow up support and care during this procedure have been first class. I would recommend the clinic to anyone.

    Todd Starr = Sciatica Whisperer

  • It was 2 years ago today that I had a tragic accident and required surgery to repair the nerves and tendons in both my feet. I was referred here by a family member and quickly understood why they spoke so highly of the entire staff. From the moment I registered with the receptionist I felt welcome and comfortable. Darryl was my therapist and was very thorough and patient with me answering my many questions and explaining my treatment and assessment so that I could understand. With hard work and a lot of support and direction and treatment I was up and walking again ahead of schedule. I will always be grateful for the experience to be treated by this team of professionals and I continue to bring to my son here to be treated by the best!
