Sports AND Musculoskeletal Physio

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy involves the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of any injury or condition involving the musculoskeletal and to a large degree the nervous system causing pain.

Our team of physiotherapists have extensive experience working in the field of musculoskeletal physiotherapy and are continually undergoing further coursework and professional development in the field. Our physiotherapists use evidence-based practice in a biopsychosocial framework. This means we only use techniques that are supported by the highest level of research evidence in their effectiveness.  

Our biopsychosocial model approach is based on our strong belief that there are many factors involved with a pain as a result of injury or condition. W not only take into consideration biological effects of tissue trauma but also the psychological and social impacts that can affect someone’s pain and rehabilitation. This higher order clinical reasoning along with multi-disciplinary approach ensures an effective and rapid return to function and pain relief.

 

Sports Physiotherapy is similar to musculoskeletal physiotherapy as sporting injuries predominately involve the musculoskeletal and nervous system. The difference is the sport specific approach to rehabilitation, time frames involved based on sporting seasons or training periods and the close working relationship with team staff.

Our team of physiotherapists have over 25 years’ experience working with the sporting population and have work across all levels, from the weekend warrior to the professional elite athlete. Our team has experience working with both professional and semi-professional sporting teams and understand the importance of involving team staff in the rehabilitation process, to ensure an effective and fast return to sport.

Our physiotherapists can quickly and effectively assess, diagnose and advise on time frames and appropriately refer on for further investigation as required.
