A Physio Clinic Where Sport Is Our Passion

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. Personalised Evaluation 

First up, we’ll kick things off with an initial evaluation, delving not only into your present symptoms but also your past medical history. 

2. Recovery Blueprint 

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 

Here, we steer clear of routine exercise sheets and commonplace handouts. Rather, we embrace a tailored approach, providing a plan that’s custom-fitted to your needs. Plus, we offer Clinical Pilates right on our premises! 

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.

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. 

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. 

General physiotherapy deals with diverse conditions of the musculoskeletal system, but sports physiotherapy is dedicated to resolving problems and injuries that occur due to physical activity and sports. Our sports physiotherapists possess particular knowledge and experience in the realm of sports injuries, enhancement of performance, and the unique demands of various sports, allowing them to devise a treatment plan specifically tailored to your athletic goals. 

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. 

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. 

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. 

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.
