Sports Physio

2 Sports Physio Clinics in Melbourne's CBD

Sports Physiotherapy is the treatment of specific musculoskeletal injury, pain or abnormal movement resulting from a sudden traumatic or overuse injury from sport or physical activity. Sports physio provides a way of sustaining your active lifestyle by treating any musculoskeletal imbalances, areas of weakness, or tension which may lead to injury occurrence.

At Pure Physio, we understand the impact of musculoskeletal injury or pain on your sport. We also acknowledge how pain can have a flow-on effect into your lifestyle and even mental wellbeing; sport and exercise are beneficial for more than just your physical health. We take the time to listen and understand all the factors that are important to you, to keep you active while you are rehabilitating.


Our approach to sports physiotherapy

The team at Pure Physio is driven to achieve the gold standard of clinical care and deliver on your goals.  Regardless of whether you’re recovering from surgery, an elite athlete, part of a community team, or anything in-between, we’re motivated to help you achieve your fitness objectives.

Our Physiotherapists take one hour for a thorough initial assessment, and 30 minutes for all follow up appointments.  We address your unique musculoskeletal biomechanics, physiology of injury recovery, and any holistic psychological and social factors at play in your presentation.  We believe time for detail, education, and explanation is fundamental.  With advanced technology, fully equipped gyms, and confidential treatment rooms, we’re primed to help you achieve success. With two clinics in Melbourne CBD, and a team of clinically skilled physiotherapists, our goal is to guide you towards your best outcomes.

Why our sports physiotherapy works

Effective Sports Physiotherapy requires high-level Manual Physiotherapy and detailed progressive Rehabilitation Physiotherapy. Manual therapy (hands on treatment) settles initial symptoms and pain, then facilitates restoration of normal movement. Rehabilitation Physiotherapy helps with future injury prevention. A thorough and tailored program, will restore, maintain, and optimise your stability, muscle activation, strength, and ultimately, your sporting performance.

Your Manual physiotherapy program may consist of:

  • Managing initial, acute-stage pain, swelling, or muscle tension
  • Joint mobilisations or manipulations
  • Soft tissue therapy including massage, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, and mobility work
  • Taping, bracing, or offloading an injury area
  • Dry needling and acupuncture
  • Passive movement facilitation techniques
  • Education about the injury and causative factors
  • Advice around alternative sporting or physical activities whilst recovering from injury

Your Rehabilitation Physiotherapy program may include:

  • Restoration of normal movement to the level you enjoyed pre-injury, or to an improved level, tailored to your sporting pursuits or goals
  • Developing the strength you need for specific goals or desired outcomes
  • Retraining for both dynamic or static activities or sports to ensure correct technique.
  • Step-by-step programming to safely achieve full recovery
  • Education and explanation of causative factors, timeframes to recovery, and management strategies throughout your journey
  • Empowering you to self-manage, understand and engage in your recovery
  • Communication with workplaces, personal trainers, coaches, and specialists to ensure your best outcomes in all areas of life.
