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. Comprehensive Analysis 

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. Treatment Roadmap 

From this, our team of physiotherapists will develop a custom treatment plan to address your sporting injury. 

3. In-House Hands-On Treatments 

Our lengthier consultation slots ensure more personalised time with your physio, during which they’ll utilise approaches tailored to your needs, like remedial massage, joint mobilisation, and dry needling, to name a few. 

4. Specific Exercise Guidance 

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. Continuous Support and Risk Mitigation 

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.

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

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 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. 

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 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. 

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 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. 

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.
