A Physio Clinic Focused on Bringing out Your Best

At Specific Physiotherapy, our practitioners harbour a keen interest in managing or preventing sports injuries, and enhancing sports performance. A number of our physiotherapists maintain ongoing relationships with elite athletes, AFL players included. They also bring a wealth of experience from their time at AFL clubs in high-level sports settings. When you come to us for sports physiotherapy, here’s what you can expect:

1. Personalised Evaluation 

To begin, we’ll conduct an initial assessment that will encompass both your current symptoms and your medical history. 

2. Treatment Roadmap 

Then, our physiotherapists will craft a customised treatment strategy for your sports-related injury. 

3. Clinic-Based Manual Therapy 

With our extended appointment durations, you’ll enjoy increased one-on-one time with your physiotherapist, who will apply techniques specifically chosen for you, including remedial massage, joint mobilisation, dry needling, among others.

Your Sports Physio Questions Answered

Specific Physiotherapy, located at 149 Plenty Road, Preston, extends its sports treatment services to those living in Brunswick and the surrounding regions. 

Booking your appointment online is straightforward, with no need for a GP referral unless you’re visiting under an EPC Plan (Enhanced Primary Care Plan) for chronic conditions. 

The physiotherapists at our clinic are well-educated healthcare practitioners, aiming to provide a diagnosis during your initial session. However, additional tests might be required in certain situations. Whether a diagnosis is confirmed or not, we will work together to develop a plan that suits your goals. 

Our treatment strategies are designed to suit your unique needs, however we do provide Clinical Pilates at our Preston physiotherapy clinic. It’s an exceptional complementary fitness option for athletes, offering great rehabilitation benefits and aiding in injury prevention. 

Sports physiotherapy enables a preventative approach to injuries by detecting areas of weakness, imbalance, or restricted mobility in your individual musculoskeletal framework. With this information, we create custom exercise and conditioning programs aimed at addressing these issues while also enhancing your total strength, flexibility, and endurance. We also provide education on appropriate techniques for physical activities, allowing you to participate in your favourite sports with less risk and more confidence. 

While general physiotherapy addresses a broad spectrum of conditions impacting the musculoskeletal system, sports physiotherapy zeroes in on complications and injuries stemming from physical activities and sports. Our sports physiotherapists bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in dealing with sports-related injuries, boosting athletic performance, and understanding the specific requirements of different sports, enabling them to customise a treatment strategy that aligns with your distinct sports-related aspirations. 

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. 

Sports physiotherapy can play a crucial role in treating chronic conditions or lingering injuries. A sports physiotherapist can evaluate the severity of an injury and its effect on your present physical abilities, then craft a customised rehabilitation program aimed at reducing persistent discomfort, enhancing mobility, and rebuilding strength and functionality in the impacted region. 

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.
