The Sarah Key clinic is the most established Sydney spinal treatment centre, attending to patients from across Australia
We specialise in backs that are difficult to fix.
If you live in Australia and suffer from back pain, the Sarah Key Centre is the Sydney spinal physiotherapy centre of excellence for you.
The founder director of the pre-eminent Sydney spinal physiotherapy clinic is Sarah Key MVO. The doors of SKPC first opened in 1987. In the years prior to that Sarah, an Australian, made waves in London's famous Harley Street area, where she opened a private clinic at the age of 26. Sarah was summoned to attend to Her Majesty The Queen in 1988. In 2003, the Queen made Sarah a Member of the Victorian Order.
