About Our Clinic

Central Victorian Sports Physiotherapy is located on Stewart Street, Bendigo, directly opposite the Emergency Dept. of Bendigo Hospital.

We provide physio services for the central Victorian region, serving greater Bendigo and Heathcote, Elmore, Goornong, Marong, Redesdale and Axedale. 

Lying at the geographical centre of the state, with a population of around 110,000 people, Bendigo was traditionally a thriving manufacturing centre. But it has become a progressive place to live, with health and wellness services recently becoming more prominent.

Our clinic is located in the ‘health precinct’ area of the city, and we’ve been here since 2007. 

Patients generally drive to our clinic, taking advantage of the excellent parking around our area, with eight carparks on site.

We have a community focus at CVSP: we’re proud sponsors of the Bendigo Triatholon club and the Golden Square football netball club. We’re also the chosen Physiotherapist for Bendigo Football interleague squad and previously we were the physiotherapist for Bendigo Spirit WNBL club.
