The Inertia Advantage
Our state of the Art Gym facilities allow us to provide a range of lower end exercises and arrange all the way through to high-end exercise and rehabilitation programs for our patients. We also have the option to conduct exercise classes in small groups or individually pending patient preferences. Our practitioners conduct fortnightly patient clinical reviews between each other (when permission is granted) on how to collectively achieve the best outcome for their patients. Our clinicians also have the distinct added advantage to call other disciplines into consults to gain an on the spot opinion on how to best manage particular conditions or how other disciplines may be helpful to the outcome.
We strive for the absolute best results for our patients and their families across all our disciplines.
