Few words from our clients

Clive GilchristAt 94 and living on the Gold Coast I have worked with Functional Health since 2013.

An active early life left me with pain episodes in the knees and in my shoulder joint. I spent a long time looking for rehabilitation and exercise that would improve my strength and flexibility without any negative residual effects.

In recent years I have enjoyed an active and pain free lifestyle. I have increased both my strength and flexibility, there is no doubt this is accredited to the MedX program at Functional Health. The friendly atmosphere at the centre also makes the sessions very enjoyable.

I recommend their services to all ages.
