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.

Specific Physiotherapy

A Physio Clinic Focused on Bringing out Your Best

At Specific Physiotherapy, managing sports injuries, averting them, and improving sports performance are areas our practitioners are particularly passionate about. Many of our physios have direct connections with professional athletes, notably AFL players, and possess experience from working in elite sporting environments at AFL clubs. Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store for you when you visit for sports physiotherapy treatment:

1. Personalised Evaluation 

Firstly, we’ll begin with a thorough assessment, taking into account your current symptoms and your historical medical details. 

2. Treatment Roadmap 

Following that, our physiotherapists will devise a tailored treatment plan specifically for your sports injury. 

3. In-Clinic Hands-On Techniques 

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. Personalised Fitness Plans 

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. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll find Specific Physiotherapy at 149 Plenty Road, Preston, where our physiotherapists cater to sports-related needs for individuals from Watsonia and its surrounding locations. 

Booking your appointment online is straightforward, with no need for a GP referral unless you’re visiting under an EPC Plan (Enhanced Primary Care Plan) for chronic conditions. 

Our physiotherapists are highly trained healthcare professionals committed to offering a diagnosis in your first consultation. In some cases, further investigation may be needed. Regardless of a confirmed diagnosis, we’ll collaborate with you to devise a management plan that meets your objectives. 

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 offers a proactive strategy for injury prevention by pinpointing potential weaknesses, imbalances, or mobility restrictions within your musculoskeletal system. From these insights, we craft personalised exercise and conditioning regimes that not only fortify these areas but also boost your general strength, flexibility, and stamina. In addition, we provide guidance on correct physical activity techniques, empowering you to engage in your preferred sports more safely and confidently. 

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 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 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. 

A range of techniques is available, from exercise therapy and remedial sports massage to manual therapy, joint mobilisation, and dry needling. We work in partnership with you to ascertain the most suitable treatment plan for achieving your aims.
