A Community Asset

Sydney West Sports Medicine is acutely aware of the unique qualities that distinguish Rooty Hill RSL as a social and sporting Club for members as well as the local community it supports. Our goal is to provide a medical facility that reflects Rooty Hill RSL’s adherence to its Constitution and social and community charter. Consequently, our vision emphasises benefits to all aspects of the community so whilst we will offer extensive service for local sporting clubs, we will also offer a range of services that are focused on assisting the non-sporting population. These services will include pre and post- operative joint replacement rehabilitation, other pre or post/surgical rehabilitation classes, neurological rehabilitation (stroke) classes, hydrotherapy classes, and deep-water exercise programs.

The Exercise Physiology aspect of our operation will not just focus on the sporting fraternity but will provide strong evidence based programs for those members of the community suffering from Diabetes, Obesity and generally low cardio-vascular tolerance.

Rehabilitation services will also be available for injured workers within the NSW Workers Compensations scheme. This will cater to the numerous businesses in the area ensuring an optimal and timely return to work for their injured employees. These services will be an adjunct with the services currently supplied by SGAC Fitness. SWSM will commit to provide discounted services in some areas for all members of SGAC and Rooty Hill RSL. SWSM is aligned with all appropriate services with Veteran’s Affairs and our fees for Veteran Affairs patients is in line with the scheduled Veteran Affairs Fees for service publication.
