Sports Physiotherapy

Sports injuries are frustrating for the active person and impacts your quality of life and social participation. Physiotherapy treatment is for everyone - not just high level athletes. Appropriate rehabilitation will assist you to return to sport and activity successfully, and help to minimise the risk of injury recurrence. Sports Physiotherapy is a specialised aspect of physiotherapy focusing on accurate assessment and individualised rehabilitation. We pride ourselves on the most evidence based management combined with extensive clinical experience, to return you to your activity as soon as possible.

Examples of injuries that benefit from physiotherapy management include:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Hamstring strains
  • Calf strains
  • Plantar fasciiopathy (commonly known as plantar fasciitis)
  • Shoulder subacromial pain (commonly known as impingement)
  • Shoulder instability
  • AC joint injuries (acromio-clavicular joint)
  • Tennis Elbow - pain on the outside of the elbow (lateral epicondylalgia)
  • Golfers Elbow - pain on the inside of the elbow (medial epicondylalgia)
  • Knee pain
  • Knee instability and rehabilitation after knee surgery
  • ACL reconstruction rehabilitation, prehabilitation and nonsurgical management
  • Groin and hip pain
  • Muscle injuries and strains
  • Pre and post-operative rehabilitation

Our approach to sports injury management involves resolution of the pain and symptoms, but also identifying the cause of the injury and working with you to prevent reinjury. Our management is based on the latest research and evidence based practice. We have a rehabilitation gym space and are able to perform video analysis of your running technique or how you move your body in a sport specific way. We look forward to helping you get back to the activity that you love to do for a healthy lifestyle.
