Located in the heart of the Balmain Peninsula, Balmain Sports Physiotherapy was established in 1980 and has a rich history of providing physiotherapy to the local community. In 2002, the practice was purchased by James Sutherland, a sports physiotherapist, who brought new expertise and extensive links to a variety of local, state and national sports clubs to the practice.

With continued growth, the practice moved to Rozelle into a new purpose designed facility in February 2009, allowing the establishment of a multi-disciplinary Sports Medicine practice.


    • 11 physiotherapy beds


    • Extensive gymnasium


    • Spacious pilates studio
