For over three decades, Eastern Sports and Spinal Care has been a respected name in the world of Physiotherapy and Pilates. Founded by the dedicated Libby Austin, this clinic has been synonymous with top-quality care and unwavering support. Libby’s influence extended far beyond her role as a physiotherapist; she was a mentor, a sports medicine leader, and a guiding light for many in her field.
Earlier this year, we faced the loss of Libby Austin, a figure whose impact on the industry will always be remembered. In honour of her legacy and vision, we are thrilled to announce that Eastern Sports and Spinal Care is relocating to the Move for Better Health Centre at 500 Magill Road, Magill. This move was part of Libby’s long-term plan, designed to facilitate her gradual transition into retirement while ensuring the continued support of the clinic.
What to Expect:
Seamless Transition: All appointments and classes scheduled at Eastern Sports and Spinal Care will relocate to the Move for Better Health Centre at Magill starting on Monday, September 25th. This includes Physiotherapy sessions led by Georgia Orchard, equipment classes, and Pilates mat classes.
The Trusted Name Stays: We retain the name Eastern Sports and Spinal Care, and our contact number remains the same as we transition to Magill. Expect the same level of expert care and attention you’ve come to rely on.
A Dedicated Team: The committed staff from Eastern Sports and Spinal Care, including Physiotherapist Georgia Orchard, Vicky Andrews, Maria Di Troia, and Zoe Andrews, will continue to provide services at the Magill clinic. They join an existing team of admin staff and experienced allied health professionals at that site.
