I am an Ironman triathlete and for the past 4 years I have been plagued by achilles/calf overuse injuries, severely hampering my running ability. I have been to physios, chiros, herbal remedies, acupuncture, massage (the lot) all with limited and short term success. I was starting to get depressed and despondent about my injuries and thinking that t his was it, they weren't going to get any better than this.
I then read about ART - Active Release Technique, in a number of triathlon magazines, but found that the few practitioners in Australia (let alone Sydney) weren't conveniently located for me. That was until I was recommended to City Clinic in Sydney (for acupuncture) and found they practiced ART. In a little over 3 months the treatment has been my saviour - they have been able to free up all the scar tissue that had built up in my achilles/calves over the years and have got me back running consistently but more importantly pain free.
The only thing holding me back now is my level of fitness and I'm looking forward to my next Ironman. Thanks guys, you have given me back the sport that I love.

I've been using Active Release Technique (ART) for more than four years. I've found it to be the most effective method for dealing with hamstring and back injuries.

After Geoff, my Chiro for the last five years, recently moved away to the good life in Byron Bay I have been looking for a new Chiropractor to take over where he left off.
I am into weight training and have been for over 20 years. I enjoy it immensley and rarely miss a day. As a consequence I do suffer a range of niggling injuries however a visit to the Chiro every couple of weeks or so and I'm back on track.
One of the guys from the gym recommended City Clinic so I booked a session with one of their Chiropractors who I now know also practice Active Release Techniques. Had read about it however never experienced it. With all due respect to Geoff I have to admit City Clinic's Chiropractors are excellent. After only two sessions I'm feeling better than I have felt for years.
If you are into heavy weight training you'll know the frustration you feel when a niggling injury interrupts your training. All I can say is "see City Clinic", and you'll be back in the gym better than ever.
Thanks guys, see you in a couple of weeks.
I developed very sore tennis elbow in 2004 – the severity ranged from difficult to work at a computer for a day’s work and progressed to not being able to lift a cup of coffee – I basically became left handed just to avoid the pain. After seeking evaluations and treatments which included chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, physiotherapy and two cortisone injections over the course of the next two and half years, I had almost given up.
In late 2007 I started having Active Release Technique (ART) treatments at City Clinic. There was improvement after the very first treatment and with every subsequent treatment it just got better and better.
After several months of treatments my arm had recovered to the point that I could do all the activities I was normally doing prior to the injury including working full time and working out to rebuild all the muscle deterioration. What can I say ART works!
I've suffered major back pains which have led me to many places , but all seemed low on experience, and helped me temporarily. This clinic helped treat my physical condition and mental condition, explaining the condition and purpose of my recent constant pain and most importantly, how to treat it daily.
City Clinics' Chiropractor is an amazing practioner who has made a huge difference to my quality of life. I have suffered from back and neck pain over the years and seen many different specialists, doctors and natural therapists. Finding City Clinic and being treated with ART (active release therapy) in combination with chiropractic treatment has made a huge impact on my day to day quality of life. Being pain free and knowing that when i do need treatment from time to time -- it works -- quickly and effectively, i can do more now and feel great! Thanks you are wonderful practitioners..
These guys are excellent. I first attended their practice when it was in Crown St after injuring myself at a nearby Gym years ago. I was doing a particular exercise incorrectly (behind the neck military press), which I still see a lot of people doing. They fixed the injury, showed me the correct way to do the excercise and got me into Pilates which I have been combining with my Gym training ever since.
I had my DXA Scan in October 2011. Unfortunately the results were not what I expected and certainly way different to another scan I had with another company a few months before.
To their credit however they sent my results to a scientist in the US and then provided a whole lot of info on a new calibration system they use. It turned out the calibration for their DXA was not set right when it was installed. They organised for me to have another scan at no charge and the results were significantly different and in line with the DXA I had with the other company.
I see one of their Chiro's fairly regularly and have always had excellent service from all their staff so it was no real surprise when they went out of their way to solve the DXA scan problem for me.
Can't recommend them enough. They really are a very friendly and professional team.
I had my first appointment with City Clinic this morning ..... this was to treat a sore/strained bicep muscle in my right arm. The service was excellent and the treatment very professional.
I suffered from a chronic pelvis condition for over 2 years and was recommended to visit City Clinic's Osteopath. Unlike other medical diagnosis given to me without identifying my condition, they pin-pointed it immediately, informed me the extent of my condition and what it would involve. I proceeded with visits with steady progress to the place where I was totally relieved from any former pain and now back to normal. I can highly recommend City Clinic for the high standard of practitioners and their integrity.
I had never been to Osteo before so I was a little nervous and didn’t know what to expect when I was recommended to go to City Clinic for my sore neck that I had for 2 months. Their Osteo was very professional and fixed my neck and rest of my back in just two visits. I was very happy and he was very honest with how many sessions I required. City Clinic has great opening hours so if you are unable to make it during work you can visit before or after.
I cannot fault them. I have been going to the Osteo there and he has fixed all my issues, I am straight and un-injured now. They are really good which is what you want when someone is dealing with your back and spine. It is such a senstivie area, you want to know the person knows what they are doing and can be effective in managing your injury.
Got my lower back fixed there a couple of times now. Very nice staff, their ostheo is highly recommended - my wife sent me there the first time and am now going for regular check ups.
I had my physio at City Clinic and it was wonderful. Very professional place, friendly staff, my appointment was on time. I am going there next week again. I can definately recommend this place.
I have been meaning to drop you a line to thank you very much for my recent treatment.
I had a range of injuries to deal with but the worst was a knee complaint that was interfering with my marathon training.
After continuing with the stretches and strength exercises it eventually settled down about 2-3 weeks before the marathon – which I completed in a time that I was very pleased with.
I hope that you are all well and many thanks again
As a patient my interest was mainly in the quality of the services provided by their physiotherapist. I tore a ligament/tendon while playing tennis. The service I received was professional, excellent quality, very caring, extremely knowledgeable regarding what I should and not do to achieve full recovery and play tennis again.
As for general management of the clinic, I would rate reception and ambience 8/10, SMS text appointment reminder a win/win service both for the clinic and its clients.
I was referred to City Clinic Pilates by a friend who had used them for rehab. After four years of Pilates with a master teacher in NYC I expected to be disappointed as I had heard that Sydney teachers were not as skilled. So I have been delighted to find City Clinic's Pilates Instructors are excellent instructors. Plus they are genuinely nice people who I look forward to spending time with each week. I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you have any back or hip problems or just want to strengthen your core and show off a great belly this is the place for you.
I have been doing Pilates at City Clinic for most of this year. They are great instructors who have helped me to correct posture problems. They are genuinely interested in my progress.
I am a new patient. These guys are great. My podiatrist was very thorough, down-to-earth, and has helped with rehabilitation of my little footsie very nicely.
I particularly liked the professional way I was welcomed to the business on my initial enquiry. Polite, prompt service on the phone, confirmation via sms, and even could fill in the new patient form online so I didn't have to complete it when I arrived. Very smooth indeed.
I have lots of problems... so, I'll get to sample the other professional services they offer as well.
Just wanted to let you know that I ran the city2surf yesterday in 76 minutes - my best time. While I am feeling a little worn out today, my knees are the best they've ever been after a long run like that. I'm sure I wouldn't have been able to do that / recover without your treatment.
Thank you very much for your help and I'll be sure to come see you once I need a new pair of shoes so you can modify them again.
