About us and how we came to be.
In 1991 the founder of Institute of Sports and Spines was establishing a career path as a professional triathlete.

What about our logo?
The picture itself tells the story – you could remove the words and still understand the essence of our company. Our focus is the body/spine with an emphasis on movement. It has a subtle global perspective.
The figure is moving forward – toward the positive; the athlete is in motion, signifying the dynamic nature of our clinic and our team. They are training, are fit yet relaxed in their movement. When you look at the logo, the eyes instantly fall on the outline of the spine and the sporting figure. There is a stylised roundness to the logo has no corners – there are no traps. The appearance of the ball on the reflective surface is to encompass the 3 dimensional elements of our approach, we are not one dimension.

Our Sustainable Initiatives
In addition to our treatment and clinic environment. We also care about the environment we live and work in.
Through the development of our new clinic, we have implemented sustainable initiatives to minimise our environmental footprint.
Our clinic runs solely on filtered rain water. Meaning we don’t waste water or use mains water.
We are moving towards carbon neutral solar energy this year. Therefore producing energy when we use and need it most.
Additionally our clinic is largely paperless and we use natural products rather than harsh chemicals in our cleaning procedures, where possible.
he desks in the clinic have been ethically constructed by Don. Using mainly repurposed Camphor Laurel, which otherwise is considered a weed that is detrimental to natural ecosystems.
Our grounds now have an abundance of plant life, and a thriving, organic veggie garden.
We also compost our kitchen and green waste and recycle more than 90% of our materials.
Above all, we endeavour to deliver our health services responsibly, and without harm to the environment.
