Ground Breaking

LifeCare opened one of the very first Sports Medicine & Physiotherapy Centres in WA in the late Eighties.

Located in the Ground Level of the St John of God Subiaco Medical Centre, this clinic offered Sports Medicine, Sports Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Radiography and Hydro Therapy, 7 days a week.

This Centre was “Ground Breaking” in the Services provided to Perth’s Sporting Population.

Some 30 years later, it seems it is now the site of a different type of “Ground Breaking”.

The old St John of God Medical Centre in Subiaco where this started has been demolished.

Luckily LifeCare Wembley is still providing 7 days a week Sports Physiotherapy, as well as Pilates Podiatry and Hydro Therapy, 7 days a week, over the road at 202 Cambridge St – 9489 6266. http://www.wembleyphysio.com.au/
