Australia’s future sports stars deserve Australia’s only Specialist Adolescent Sports Physiotherapist
We believe that young athletes are the future of sport in Australia. While sport is huge for teenagers, it’s more than just sport, it’s about teenagers as a whole. It’s about all the changes and transitions that are occurring physically, biologically, neurologically, psychologically and socially.
Specialist Sports Physiotherapy
Too often young athletes have the most inexperienced and least qualified coaches, sports scientists, and sports medicine teams – not at Twelve9teen. With Twelve9teen you get one of the most experienced qualified specialist sports and exercise physiotherapists working with you and your family holistically.
Elite Athlete Experience
Dr Loretta O’Sullivan-Pippia has more than 25 years experience travelling the world providing care. She’s worked with elite athletes in all manner of sports including Olympic Gold Medallists, professional athletes, and even some of the world’s best musicians. No problem is too complex for her experience.

Australia’s athletic future is built on the shoulders of our sporty teens, it’s only right we give them the care and focus they deserve.
Specialist Adolescent Sports Physiotherapist
Dr Loretta O’Sullivan-Pippia is a Doctor of Clinical Physiotherapy who focuses on adolescents in sport and advanced practice physiotherapy. She believes from the bottom of her heart that services for teens shouldn’t just be tacked on to adult services.
Teenagers have unique experiences and challenges which should be assessed by someone whose life’s work revolves around those very same issues. It’s her passion to see young people thrive in the future of Australian sport, and it’s her honour to be able to work on future Olympians.
