Even Former Prime Ministers suffer from back pain. That’s why Malcolm Turnbull was happy to open the Elite Spinal Physiotherapy and Pilates clinic in Sydney. It was there that he received the treatment he needed after surgery for sciatica.
The clinic’s co-founder Elisha Renton showed The Carousel around the spacious, luminous clinic which has undergone a full refurbishment and offers a tranquil oasis where clients can enjoy relaxing physiotherapy treatments and clinical pilates sessions.
Award winning architect Tom Mark Henry created the beautiful space with soft modern finishes to make clients feeling like they are in an exclusive health resort while doing physiotherapy and pilates. Even without enjoying any session at that moment, just by entering and visiting pilates dedicated rooms we could feel that peaceful and soothing atmosphere. Clear tones and materials : white wood and beige merge so well that it gives an immediate relaxing effect on mind.
The particularity of the Elite Spinal Physiotherapy and Pilates is the focus given to the spine and headache treatment. Many of the practitioners within the clinic have taken a special interest in physiotherapy for headaches and completed post-graduate training in the treatment of headaches and migraines. Elite Spinal works closely with many of Sydney’s top Neurosurgeons, Sports Physicians, Pain Specialists and GP’s.
Co-founder Elisha Renton explains she had the idea for the clinic because she found a real lack in spine specialisation clinics. She told The Carousel: “After struggling with my own neck and pelvis issues following a car accident, I realised there was a real need for a clinic that focuses solely on the spine. The spine is such a fascinating and complicated part of the body. Unfortunately that means that many different things can go wrong with it. People can suffer from an array of different issues. These all need to be treated very differently. Our aim was to create a clinic where our staff were highly experienced in this area so our clients could achieve the best possible outcomes.”
Co-Founder, Brigitte Seelin added: “It has been quite the journey for Elisha and I since establishing Elite Spinal Physiotherapy and Pilates in 2013. It has been a privilege to be able to help so many of our clients who suffer from complex and chronic spinal conditions. We are passionate about not only treating our patients with a hands-on approach but also empowering them to help themselves through tailored exercise, strength and flexibility programs.”
Elite Spinal has become the industry leaders for clinical Pilates in the Eastern Suburbs with over 50 classes now on the timetable. They run semi-private clinical Pilates sessions with a maximum of four clients per session or private sessions.
