Vision Statement

Balmain Sports Medicine, Rozelle provides a highly specialised service allowing you to benefit from a skilled assessment, an accurate diagnosis and the latest evidence-based ‘hands on’ management techniques, to allow you to minimise your recovery time and maximise your sporting performance, whether at a recreational or elite sporting level.

Our practitioners provide these services in an ethical and responsible manner, working closely with the athlete and their associated members of the health care team (coaches, sports physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, strength/conditioning advisers, nutritionists, podiatrists, pilates instructors), to provide optimal results for athletes, family, staff and company.

To maintain excellence in our practice, each practitioner participates in continuing professional sports development, as well as strictly adhering to the codes of practice established by his / her professional body.

This ensures treatment - prevention - performance enhancement.


Located in the heart of the Balmain Peninsula, Balmain Sports Medicine, Rozelle was established in 1980 and has a rich history of providing physiotherapy to the local community.

In 2002, the practice was purchased by James Sutherland, a sports physiotherapist, who brought new expertise and extensive links to a variety of local, state and national sports clubs to the practice.

With continued growth, the practice moved to Rozelle, with a new purpose designed facility in February 2009, allowing the establishment of a multi-disciplinary Sports Medicine practice. We now have a fully equiped Pilates Studio, an extensive gymnasium, and four fully fitted consultation rooms along with 12 Physiotherapy treatment tables, which enables us to provide timely and knowledgeable sports injury management to Balmain, Rozelle, Lilyfield and the Inner West.
