Our Story / Philosophy
Active Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy started their journey as the Active Sports Injury Clinic, initially a small Remedial Massage practice at the Lilydale Squash and Fitness Centre in 1993. It was taken over by Principal physiotherapist, Ravi de Soysa, in early 1996. The practice grew over time but had little space to expand at its premises.
Active Sports Injury Clinic was invited to join the new Lilydale Medical Centre as an inaugural business associate in 2004. When the centre opened in September 2005, the practice was named Active Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy to better reflect the service we offer to the community. With extra rooms and modern facilities, Active Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy has grown to become the largest practice in the region, with 7 physiotherapists and a Myotherapist/Remedial masseur. The advantage of being located at the Lilydale Medical Centre and next door to a Radiology and Specialist Centre means our clients have access to a wide range of services in the same place.
Our desire is to continue to grow the traditions and values of our business, which is into a third decade servicing the communities of Lilydale, surrounding suburbs and the Yarra Valley. We endeavour to be professional in our workplace, caring towards our patients, happy in our disposition, balanced in our thinking and united in making a difference to our community.
