Sports Injuries

 

We’re highly trained in preventing, diagnosing and treating injuries related to sports and exercise.

Physiotherapy is often needed for sports injuries because it can help to reduce pain and inflammation. Our focus is to increase joint range of motion and muscle strength which leads to an overall improvement in terms of function and performance.

 

A variety of factors can lead to developing a sporting injury including overtraining, lack of conditioning, and improper form or technique.

If you’ve been experiencing pain or nursing an injury for more than a few days, we highly recommend coming to see one of our highly experienced physiotherapists. The sooner that we can treat your sporting injury the sooner we can get you back to your training and activity.

We have a lot of experience in treating all kinds of injuries including:

 

  • Back and neck pain including disc bulges and prolapses

  • Rotator cuff strains, subacromial bursitis and other shoulder injuries

  • ACL, PCL, LCL, MCL sprains, Mensicus tears and other knee injuries

  • Hip, foot and ankle sprains

  • Tennis elbow, Achilles strains and other tendon injuries

  • Calf, hamstring and all other muscle strains

  • Occupational overuse syndrome (RSI)

After a thorough assessment, a treatment plan will be tailor made to address your unique issues and will vary based on the specific injury, the stage of healing, and your goals as an athlete.

Treatments We Offer For Sports Injuries:

  • Manual Therapy: This includes techniques such as massage, mobilisation, and manipulation to reduce pain and improve mobility.
