Sport can be a fundamental aspect of our daily lives, offering enjoyment, physical well-being, and entertainment to many. For some, it also represents a professional path.

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. Comprehensive Analysis 

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

2. Recovery Blueprint 

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

3. On-Site Physical Therapies 

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. 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 

After your initial treatment, our team continues to stand by you for the long run. We take into account strategies for preventing injuries and lessening the likelihood of further injuries, in addition to improving your sports performance, so you can shine in your chosen arena.

Your Sports Physio Questions Answered

Specific Physiotherapy, located at 149 Plenty Road, Preston, extends its sports treatment services to those living in Reservoir 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 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. 

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 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. 

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. 

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. 

Sports physiotherapy is particularly adept at managing long-standing conditions or old injuries. By assessing the injury’s impact on your current physical capabilities, a sports physiotherapist can develop a personalised recovery plan that targets reducing ongoing pain, increasing mobility, and restoring strength and function to the affected areas. 

Recovery periods for sports injuries differ, influenced by the specific injury, its seriousness, your overall physical state, and your treatment responsiveness. Our team of sports physiotherapists will craft a personalised recovery timeline after your first assessment, making adjustments as necessary throughout the course of your treatment. 

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.
