A Physiotherapy Practice With a Love of Sport

Our professionals at Specific Physiotherapy hold a specific interest in sports injury management, its prevention, and the enhancement of sports performance. Quite a few of our physiotherapists have ongoing engagements with professional sportspeople, AFL footballers among them. Their backgrounds are enriched with experiences in elite sports contexts, notably within AFL clubs. On your visit for sports physio care, here’s what you should expect:

1. Detailed Examination 

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

2. Therapy Program 

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

3. Clinic-Based Manual Therapy 

Our lengthier consultation slots ensure more personalised time with your physio, during which they’ll utilise approaches tailored to your needs, like remedial massage, joint mobilisation, and dry needling, to name a few. 

4. Tailored Exercise Recommendations 

At our centre, generic exercise sheets and standard printouts are a thing of the past. We prefer a customised strategy, making sure your plan is uniquely yours. And, we’re equipped with on-site Clinical Pilates! 

5. Sustained Management and Injury Avoidance 

Our support extends beyond just your initial treatment plan. We focus on injury prevention and reducing the risk of re-injury, alongside enhancing your sports performance, to ensure you’re at your peak!

Simply book your appointment online; a GP referral is only necessary if you’re utilising an EPC Plan (Enhanced Primary Care Plan) for chronic conditions. 

Our physiotherapists, skilled healthcare providers, strive to diagnose during your initial visit. However, further examinations might be required for a conclusive diagnosis. Regardless, we’ll closely collaborate with you to establish a management plan tailored to 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. 

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 encompasses various conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, but sports physiotherapy concentrates on issues and injuries associated with physical activity and sports. Our sports physiotherapists have extensive experience in sporting injuries, performance enhancement, and the particular requirements of different sports, making it possible for them to tailor a treatment plan that caters to your unique athletic goals. 

Sports physiotherapy offers benefits to all individuals engaged in physical activities, irrespective of their competitive level. Whether you’re a casual participant, a dedicated fitness enthusiast, or simply someone aspiring to be more active, sports physiotherapy can assist in recuperating from injuries, averting potential issues, and maximising physical performance. The core principles of sports physiotherapy are relevant to every level of activity, facilitating secure and effective involvement in any sporting or exercise endeavour. 

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. 

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.
