About us


A new way forward

The Next Step Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Programs are unique to the Spinal Cord Injury Community and offer an evidence based recovery model that utilises the latest recovery options and modalities.
Typically an injured person’s first interaction with medical care is through the hospital system, whose primary focus is to stabilise and secure the safety of the individual. This system alone is unable to provide those with SCI and other neurological disorders the intensive therapy they require for a long term quality of life and an independent lifestyle.

Our exercise based recovery programs offer those with spinal cord injuries and other neurological conditions the expertise, therapy and long term physical and psychological support to enable them to achieve the best possible recovery outcomes.

The Next Step Spinal Cord Injury Recovery & Wellness Centre is a unique and vibrant facility based in the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne Victoria and is a not-for-profit organisation that has been established by a community of people affected by Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) both personally and indirectly.

Take your next step towards recovery – Phone (03) 9408 4871 for an appointment today.


“I am a T6 complete paraplegic after a motorcycle accident in August 2010. I commenced The 12 week Fast Start Program in April 2014, incorporating Exercise Physiology, Massage, Acupuncture, Nutrition and Motivational Sessions. I would definitely recommend anyone with a Spinal Cord Injury to get involved with this program. I personally have had great improvements with balance, flexibility and inner core strength, have reduced my medications and am starting to take control of the pain with the help of Acupuncture and Myotherapy”. Mal Scott (Pictured above)
