Sports physio involves the assessment and treatment of sporting injuries—as part of rehabilitation or to prevent future injury. Part of the process is recognising the unique athletic goals of each individual, and providing the resources you require to perform at your peak—regardless of your sporting experience.
You don’t have to be a professional athlete to receive superior treatment; we cater for sports men and women engaged in sports at any level.
At Pure Physio, we’re passionate about pain management and proactive prevention. Regardless of whether you’re an elite athlete, part of a community team, or anything in-between, we’re motivated to help you achieve your fitness objectives.
Sports physio is an effective way to sustain your active lifestyle, while treating any imbalances or areas of injury. When sports physio is employed as part of a holistic treatment approach, it can contribute to:
- Musculoskeletal strength and wellbeing.
- Enhanced rehabilitation response throughout injury.
- Improved mobility, flexibility and joint flexion.
- Prevention of future pain in areas predisposed to injury.
- Relaxation and stress relief.
With 2 clinics in Melbourne’s CBD, our team can prepare programs tailored to the requirements of a range of sports. We believe this need to be specific to your athletic pursuit, and in line with your individual sporting goals.
What should I expect during my consultation?
Upon consultation, our detailed assessment focuses on both the reasons for your injury and symptoms, as well as specific areas for improvement to meet the requirements of your particular sport.
Our attention to detail involves analysing your movement patterns, then focusing on the components that require re-training, strengthening and improved flexibility.
We provide video analysis of your movement patterns, and a full explanation of your weakness to help you understand your injury. Our clinics offer industry-leading facilities and equipment to help enable your recovery. We can provide detailed technique analysis and assessment for a range of sports. Onsite physiotherapy gyms, showers and change rooms ensure that you can head home or straight to work after completing your consultation.
Interested in an assessment?
During your treatment, our physiotherapists may employ muscle mobilisation and manipulation to stimulate the healing process. There are many hands-on techniques that, when partnered with education and targeted exercise, treat specific areas of pain and discomfort for athletes.
This depends on a qualified physiotherapist to identify your best course of recovery, and establish your return to optimal performance. Sports physio is effective due to the individualised treatment programs devised by physios with knowledge of sports and physiology.
Detailed education around activating endurance, power, repetition and other potential contributing aspects of your daily life are integrated throughout treatment. During sports injury treatment, rehabilitation exercises are prescribed to help you throughout each step of your recovery.
Injuries in sport are often the result of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints being pushed to their limits. Injuries of this kind require expert treatment and rehabilitation for optimal recovery. Speed of recovery is often a deciding factor for many athletes, as it impacts their overall schedules and upcoming activity.
Sports physio is an effective treatment for a range of common sporting injuries and pain points. It is suitable when addressing a wide range of conditions that cause pain or discomfort. Including:
- Muscular strains (calf, hamstring and others)
- Shoulder instability
- Overuse injuries
- Hip and knee injuries
- Tendon injuries
- Back pain
- Dislocations and fractures
- Joint or ligament strains
At Pure Physio, our team will work through your presentation, associated activity levels, work status and sporting goals to ensure all relevant areas are targeted.
While you don’t need to be an athlete, we will assess and diagnose your injury to determine the best treatment for you. Each treatment plan we create at Pure Physio is unique to your needs and requirements. It may contain a combination of treatment including sports or general physiotherapy in conjunction with other treatment modalities.
A consultation allows us to truly understand your injury and sporting goals. Part of the rehabilitation process is identifying improvements in your performance, and helping you meet the requirements of your sport. Our technique analysis and understanding of movement allows us to provide exercises and education that can benefit your ongoing performance and recovery.
Speed of recovery and long-term benefits of sports physio depend entirely on your individual circumstances and level of injury. Upon your first consultation, our team will form a treatment program with key steps to help ensure an optimal recovery and return to the sport you love.
