We are experienced in treating traumatic and overuse type sporting injuries and offer treatment options to recreational athletes, those that only occasionally do some physical exercise as well as for the more competitive athletic population.
Sports injuries are a special group of musculoskeletal injuries that can involve a wide range of structures and requires a special knowledge of common injuries for different sporting activities, a thorough knowledge of tissue repair and loading exercise and the application of specific rehabilitation strategies. Each sporting activity is different and each patient presentation is unique, this requires a very personalised approach to the assessment and treatment methods.
Our Physiotherapists have experience in a wide range of sports, have a keen interest in exercise and sports themselves and aim to get you back even better and stronger to your athletic activities. We also offer comprehensive rehabilitation programs to assist a recovery from an injury, return to sport as well as post-surgical rehabilitation.
