Sydney Physiotherapy centre for back pain


At The Sarah Key Sydney Physiotherapy Centre for back pain, we strive to offer outstanding treatment of all spinal problems.

For over a quarter of a century, our busy Bridge Street clinic behind Circular Quay has been a destination for patients from across Australia and abroad. Throughout that time, there have been subtle differences between Sarah Key Physiotherapy and other treatment centres that have allowed us to become the ultimate back pain centre.
