A Physio Clinic Where Sport Is Our Passion

Our team at Specific Physiotherapy have a passion for the management and prevention of sports injuries, as well as in boosting athletic performance. Several of our physiotherapists are closely linked with top-tier athletes, including those in the AFL, and have a background in working within the elite sports sphere at AFL clubs. Expect the following when you seek sports physio treatment with us:

1. In-depth Assessment 

Initially, we’ll commence with an evaluation, focusing on your existing symptoms as well as your medical background. 

2. Treatment Roadmap 

Next up, our physios will construct a personalised treatment regimen for your sports injury. 

3. In-House Hands-On Treatments 

Thanks to our generous appointment lengths, you’ll benefit from more dedicated time with your physio, who will use a range of techniques customised for you, such as remedial massage, joint mobilisation, dry needling, and beyond. 

4. Specific Exercise Guidance 

You won’t come across the usual exercise sheets and off-the-shelf handouts here. Instead, we opt for a bespoke approach, ensuring your program is specifically designed for you. Additionally, we provide Clinical Pilates on-site! 

5. Continuous Support and Risk Mitigation 

Beyond the initial care plan, our team remains committed to your long-term well-being. We’ll address injury prevention and minimise the chance of re-injury, while also working to boost your athletic performance, helping you excel in your sport, whether it’s on the track, field, or court.

Your Sports Physio Questions Answered

Specific Physiotherapy is situated at 149 Plenty Road, Preston, offering sports therapy to residents of Alphington and the neighbouring communities. 

You can easily schedule your appointment online without a GP referral, unless you’re coming in on an EPC Plan (Enhanced Primary Care Plan) for chronic conditions. 

Our physiotherapists are highly trained healthcare professionals committed to offering a diagnosis in your first consultation. In some cases, further investigation may be needed. Regardless of a confirmed diagnosis, we’ll collaborate with you to devise a management plan that meets your objectives. 

While our treatment plans are customised to each individual’s needs, we proudly offer Clinical Pilates at our Preston physiotherapy clinic. It’s an ideal adjunct fitness activity for athletes, providing significant benefits for rehabilitation and injury prevention. 

Through sports physiotherapy, we adopt a proactive method to prevent injuries by uncovering any specific weaknesses, imbalances, or mobility constraints in your musculoskeletal system. Utilising this assessment, we formulate customised exercise and conditioning routines that tackle these weak spots and simultaneously support your overall strength, flexibility, and endurance. We also offer insight into proper physical activity techniques, helping you to engage in your chosen sports with minimised risk and increased confidence. 

General physiotherapy deals with diverse conditions of the musculoskeletal system, but sports physiotherapy is dedicated to resolving problems and injuries that occur due to physical activity and sports. Our sports physiotherapists possess particular knowledge and experience in the realm of sports injuries, enhancement of performance, and the unique demands of various sports, allowing them to devise a treatment plan specifically tailored to your athletic goals. 

Sports physiotherapy is advantageous for anyone involved in physical activities, not just professional athletes. It’s ideal for weekend warriors, fitness aficionados, or those aiming for an active lifestyle. Sports physiotherapy may aid in addressing injuries, preventing future ones, and enhancing physical capabilities. The fundamentals of sports physiotherapy are applicable across all activity intensities, guaranteeing safe and efficient engagement in any sport or physical exercise. 

Utilising sports physiotherapy can be highly effective for chronic ailments or previous injuries. A sports physiotherapist will assess the injury’s scope and its repercussions on your current physical function, formulating a tailored rehabilitation plan designed to mitigate enduring pain, enhance mobility, and rejuvenate strength and functionality to the affected zone. 

The time it takes to recover from a sports injury varies, dependent on the nature and gravity of the injury, your overall physical condition, and your responsiveness to therapy. Our sports physiotherapists will establish a tailored recovery plan after your initial assessment and will modify it as your treatment progresses. 

We utilise a diverse array of techniques such as exercise therapy, remedial sports massage, manual therapy, joint mobilisation, and dry needling. Collaborating closely with you, we identify the most effective treatment method to meet your objectives.
