Weekend Walk-In Injury Clinic Update

17 September 2018

Due to popular demand we're continuing our Weekend Walk-In Injury Clinic beyond the winter sports season - but only on Saturdays and at our Sports Medicine Clinic (not the Exercise + Rehab Centre).

Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic
339 Heidelberg Road, Northcote
12.30 - 5pm Saturdays (until early November)

 

Injuries are assessed by a Physiotherapist.

There are specific injuries and illnesses that occur in children that do not occur in adults and vice versa.
