A Physio Clinic With a Passion for Sport

At Specific Physiotherapy, our practitioners have a special interest in sports injury management, sports injury prevention, and sports performance. Many of our physios have ongoing connections to elite sportspeople, including AFL footballers. They also have previous experience working at AFL clubs in elite sports environments. Here’s what to expect when you visit us for sports physio treatment:
1. Thorough Assessment

First, we’ll start with an initial assessment that covers not just your current symptoms but also your medical history.

2. Treatment Plan

Next, our Preston physiotherapists will formulate a personalised treatment plan for your sporting injury.

3. In-Clinic Manual Therapies

Thanks to our longer appointment times, you’ll get more 1:1 time with your physio. They will employ techniques suited to you, such as remedial massage, joint mobilisation, dry needling, and more.

4. Exercise Prescription

Here, you won’t find standard exercise sheets and generic printouts. Instead, we adopt a personalised approach, ensuring you have a plan that is tailored to you. We also have Clinical Pilates on-site!

5. Ongoing Care and Injury Prevention

Beyond your initial treatment plan, our team is here to support you into the future. We’ll consider injury prevention and re-injury minimisation as well as sports performance to help you play your best on the court, field, track, or stage!

No! You can simply book your appointment online. You will need a GP referral if you’re visiting on a EPC Plan (Enhanced Primary Care Plan) which is for chronic conditions.
Our physios are highly trained healthcare professionals who will always strive to provide a diagnosis during your initial physiotherapy consultation. However, this may not be possible without further investigation. Whether we have a confirmed diagnosis or not, we will work closely with you to create a management plan that aligns with your goals.
Our treatment plans vary depending on your unique needs. However, we do offer Clinical Pilates at our Preston physio clinic, and it’s often a fantastic complementary fitness activity for athletes. Plus, it can be an excellent rehabilitation tool and also prevent injury in the future.

Sports physiotherapy can be used to take a proactive approach to prevent injuries by identifying any areas of weakness, imbalance, or limited mobility in your individual musculoskeletal system. Based on these assessments, we can design customised exercise and conditioning programs that not only address these vulnerabilities but also enhance overall strength, flexibility, and endurance. We can also provide education on proper techniques during physical activity, so you can participate in your chosen sports with reduced risk and greater confidence.

While general physiotherapy focuses on a range of conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, sports physiotherapy specifically targets issues and injuries related to physical activity and sport. Our sports physios have knowledge and experience in sporting injuries, performance enhancement, and the demands of various sports, allowing them to tailor a treatment plan that meets your unique athletic based goals.

Absolutely! Sports physiotherapy is beneficial for anyone engaging in physical activity, regardless of their professional status. Whether you’re a weekend warrior, a fitness enthusiast, or someone looking to lead a more active life, sports physiotherapy can help in injury recovery, prevention, and optimising physical performance. The principles of sports physiotherapy apply to all levels of physical activity, ensuring safe and effective participation in any form of exercise or sport.

Sports physiotherapy can be an effective treatment in addressing a chronic condition or old injury. A sports physiotherapist can assess the extent of an injury and its impact on your current physical function and design a tailored rehabilitation plan that may help to alleviate lingering pain, improve mobility, and restore strength and function to the affected area.

Recovery time from a sports injury can vary depending on the nature and severity of the injury, your overall physical condition, and how you respond to treatment. Our sports physiotherapists will provide a personalised recovery timeline based on your initial assessment and adjust it as treatment progresses.

We employ a number of different techniques that may include exercise therapy, remedial sports massage, manual therapy, joint mobilisation and dry needling. We work with you to determine the most effective treatment approach to achieve your goals.
