Specific Physiotherapy

A Sports-Focused Physiotherapy Hub

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. Detailed Examination 

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

2. Recovery Blueprint 

Following that, our physiotherapists will devise a tailored treatment plan specifically for your sports injury. 

3. On-Site Physical Therapies 

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. Personalised Fitness Plans 

Forget about the typical exercise sheets and generic printouts here. We take a custom approach, ensuring your rehabilitation plan is specially crafted for you. Plus, we have Clinical Pilates available right here on-site! 

5. Sustained Management and Injury Avoidance 

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.

FAQs

You’ll find Specific Physiotherapy at 149 Plenty Road, Preston, where our physiotherapists cater to sports-related needs for individuals from Bundoora and its surrounding locations. 

There’s no requirement for a GP referral to book your appointment online, except if you’re attending on 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 approach to treatment is personalised, catering to your individual needs. Among our offerings is Clinical Pilates at our Preston physiotherapy clinic, which many athletes find to be an excellent supplementary fitness activity. It’s also a valuable tool for rehabilitation and can help in preventing future injuries. 

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 also offer a strategy for chronic issues or past injuries. A sports physio can determine the injury’s extent and its influence on your physical performance, devising a personalised rehabilitation strategy to ease lasting pain, boost mobility, and recover strength and functionality in the impacted areas. 

Healing times from sports injuries are variable, depending on the injury’s characteristics and severity, your general physical fitness, and your response to therapy. Our sports physiotherapists will devise an individualised recovery roadmap based on your initial diagnosis, adapting it as your therapy unfolds. 

A range of techniques is available, from exercise therapy and remedial sports massage to manual therapy, joint mobilisation, and dry needling. We work in partnership with you to ascertain the most suitable treatment plan for achieving your aims.
