*****Update July 1st 2020*****
First Choice Spinal & Sports Physiotherapy remains open at Lawson and Warrimoo. This decision is based on advice from the Australian Physiotherapy Association and the Federal Government.
If you are feeling unwell, are anxious about the current COVID-19 situation, or if you have any concerns about your health, then we advise you to postpone your session. We also offer online consultations, aka Telehealth, which we've been providing since the clinic was established.
The clinic provides longer appointments than most physiotherapy practices, so you'll never feel rushed and we can continue to perform the necessary levels of cleaning between patients.
Telehealth appointments are essentially video calls using your computer or phone that are conducted from the comfort of your own home. You will receive detailed advice and access to exercise videos to assist your recovery. Some health funds provide a rebate for Telehealth sessions, but if your fund does not then we can provide a discount to minimise your out of pocket costs.
If you are unsure as to which service to book then please call us on 0490 326 311 for assistance.

Jason Wheeler established First Choice Spinal & Sports Physiotherapy soon after a near-death experience in December 2018. Having survived a 20m fall from a cliff, Jason re-evaluated his family and career priorities.
Working in private practice since 2006, Jason gained valuable experience and insights into how best to serve his patients. He also recognised that in order to provide a range of top quality services for his patients he would need to establish his own clinic.
First Choice Spinal & Sports Physiotherapy services both the sporting population and the general population with equal enthusiasm and commitment to high-value care. We provide longer appointments than most other physiotherapy practices so all current and previous injuries are thoroughly assessed before a treatment plan is established.
Jason has recently completed additional Post-Graduate Studies and Research, including a Masters Degree in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. This ensures he is equipped with up to date knowledge of injury prevention, treatment options and management plans, as well as latest developments in physiotherapy.
Having experienced a life-threatening accident himself, Jason feels he has gained significant insight and understanding into the impact of serious injuries, chronic pain, the intricacies involved in long-term rehabilitation, injuries affecting
full-time work and the impact all of these can have on one's mental health.
Jason's aim is to use his knowledge as a physiotherapist, as well as his personal lived-in experience, to help patients through their own recovery journey with a compassionate, open and honest approach.
