Sports Physiotherapy is the dedicated branch of physiotherapy which addresses injuries and issues experienced by sports men and women.
Dandenong Ranges Physio offer Sports Physiotherapy services from our clinics in Olinda and Mount Evelyn to the surrounding communities including Boronia, Lilydale and Upper Ferntree Gully.
You must understand that sports injuries do vary from day-to-day injuries. Sports people generally demand active performance, and the demands placed on their body stress their muscles, joints and bones to the limit. Sports physiotherapists allow athletes to recover from sporting injuries, and provide education and resources to help stop recurrence of problems.
Each of our physiotherapists possess sport specific experience that deals with severe, chronic and overuse injuries endured in sports including football, soccer, cricket, hockey, netball, volleyball, cycling and basketball. It is for this purpose that it is necessary to meet with a sports physiotherapist that recognises the complicated nature of your specific game.
Our Physiotherapists have thorough knowledge of the most recent evidence-based practice, skilled assessment and diagnosis of sports injuries, and are qualified in using effective ‘hands-on’ management techniques and exercise protocols to aid healing as well as prevent injury.
