Musculoskeletal & Sports Physiotherapy

As athletes perform vigorous levels of activity that place strain and demand on their bodies regularly, their treatment must be tailored to this high intensity lifestyle.

What is Musculoskeletal & Sports Physiotherapy?

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is physical treatment focussing on anything that impacts the way you move – namely your muscles and joints. Whether you’ve suffered from an injury, you’re recovering from surgery or you’re managing a long-term condition, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy aims to diagnose and treat your issue to get you back to your best.

Sports Physiotherapy is a form of physical therapy with a specific focus on the treatment of sports-related illness and injury. As athletes perform vigorous levels of activity, their bodies are regularly placed under heightened strain and demand. As a result, their treatment must be tailored to this high intensity lifestyle. Sports Physiotherapy offers treatment specific to athletes to ensure their recovery is suited to their fitness requirements.

How we can help

After we’ve assessed and identified your condition, we’ll put together a tailored treatment plan to give you the best chance of recovery in a realistic timeframe. How frequently your treatment with us will be is dictated by how quickly you wish to see improvement in your condition.

We know home exercises can at times be a chore, but we’ll give you detailed demonstrations on what you need to do away from the clinic to complement your treatment. We’ll also show you ways to manage your own problem areas – this will give you the ability to better manage your condition and understand your own body.

If your condition sits outside our capabilities to address, we’ve got a wide network of trusted practitioners and specialists who we can refer you to for help. We have excellent relationships with some of Melbourne’s leading surgeons, sports doctors and general physicians, and we’re always more than happy to help you to get an appointment with these specialists as quickly as possible to keep your waiting time to a minimum.
