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 

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

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. 

Utilising sports physiotherapy, we take a preventative stance against injuries by identifying any weaknesses, imbalances, or mobility limitations unique to your body’s structure. Based on our findings, we develop tailored exercise and conditioning plans that not only mitigate these vulnerabilities but also improve your overall strength, flexibility, and endurance. We also offer advice on the proper execution of physical activities, enabling you to pursue your chosen sports with decreased risk and increased assurance. 

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. 

Utilising sports physiotherapy can be highly effective for chronic ailments or previous injuries. A sports physiotherapist will assess the injury’s scope and its repercussions on your current physical function, formulating a tailored rehabilitation plan designed to mitigate enduring pain, enhance mobility, and rejuvenate strength and functionality to the affected zone. 

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 adopt numerous techniques, such as exercise therapy, remedial sports massage, manual therapy, joint mobilisation, and dry needling, to cater to your needs. In collaboration with you, we determine the most beneficial treatment approach to attain your goals.
