Reach the Peak of Sporting Performance

Sport holds a significant place in our lives. For a good number of us, it’s all about the joy, fitness, and fun it brings. There are also those for whom sport is their livelihood. At Specific Physiotherapy, our goal is to provide exceptional sports healthcare for individuals across all sporting endeavours. Be it an injury you’re dealing with, an aspiration to enhance your game, or a desire to avoid potential injuries, our experienced team of physiotherapists is here to assist you.

Specific Physiotherapy

A Sports-Focused Physiotherapy Hub

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. Personalised Evaluation 

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

2. Treatment Roadmap 

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

3. In-Clinic Hands-On Techniques 

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. 

4. Customised Workout Plans 

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. Long-Term Maintenance and Injury Prevention 

Following your initial treatment regime, our team is dedicated to your ongoing support. We consider injury prevention and the minimisation of re-injury, as well as enhancing sports performance, to aid you in performing your best, whether that’s on the field, track, court, or stage!

Frequently Asked Questions

Located at 149 Plenty Road, Preston, Specific Physiotherapy serves those in Glenroy and nearby areas with tailored sports treatment options. 

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. 

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. 

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. 

Sports physiotherapy offers a proactive strategy for injury prevention by pinpointing potential weaknesses, imbalances, or mobility restrictions within your musculoskeletal system. From these insights, we craft personalised exercise and conditioning regimes that not only fortify these areas but also boost your general strength, flexibility, and stamina. In addition, we provide guidance on correct physical activity techniques, empowering you to engage in your preferred sports more safely and confidently. 

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. 

Absolutely, sports physiotherapy isn’t limited to professional athletes; it’s beneficial for everyone who partakes in physical activities. From weekend sports enthusiasts and exercise buffs to individuals seeking an active lifestyle, sports physiotherapy can support injury rehabilitation, prevention, and the enhancement of overall physical function. The strategies used in sports physiotherapy are universally applicable, ensuring everyone can safely and effectively partake in their chosen physical activities or sports. 

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. 

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.
