A Physiotherapy Practice With a Love of Sport

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 

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

2. Treatment Roadmap 

Then, our physiotherapists will craft a customised treatment strategy for your sports-related 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. Long-Term Maintenance and Injury Prevention 

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.

From Recuperation to Athletic Performance

Our team is seasoned in addressing a broad spectrum of sports injuries, from sprains and strains to tendinopathies, knee and shoulder injuries, overuse injuries, cramps and spasms, as well as neck and back injuries, among others. We employ a mix of hands-on therapy, educating our patients, and exercises tailored to the individual to manage these musculoskeletal issues and persistent conditions. Additionally, we provide support with conditioning to enhance your sports performance, encompassing movement analysis and improvement, strength and conditioning, flexibility and mobility work, injury prevention strategies, training to boost performance, rehabilitation tailored to specific sports, and educational insights. 

Specific Physiotherapy


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

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. 

Our team of physiotherapists are extensively trained healthcare practitioners who endeavour to give a diagnosis at your first appointment. Sometimes, though, more detailed investigations are necessary. Even without a definitive diagnosis, we’re dedicated to working with you to formulate a plan that reflects your goals. 

Treatment plans at our clinic are tailored to your specific requirements, but one additional offering is Clinical Pilates at our Preston physio clinic. This method is particularly beneficial for athletes as an extra fitness regimen, serving both as an strong rehabilitation tool and a preventive measure against future injuries. 

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 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. 

Our approach incorporates various methods, including exercise therapy, remedial sports massage, manual therapy, joint mobilisation, and dry needling. We collaborate with you to pinpoint the optimal treatment strategy to fulfill your goals.
