Sports Injury

We offer specialist diagnosis of sporting related injuries and the identification of their underlying cause as a key to our successful physiotherapy treatments.

Our team utilises a wide range of evidence-based techniques to manage your condition. Their innovative approach to treatment plans may include joint mobilisations, soft-tissue therapy, strength and balance training, dry needling and education.

We take the time to thoroughly investigate the cause of your injury, developing an individualised program to get you back to your favourite activities as quickly and safely as possible. Not only will our therapists treat your injury, they’ll provide valuable education and training on injury prevention techniques. These will help you manage any underlying issues that may prevent you from participating in your chosen pursuit.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have had a knee injury and have the following symptoms, it is advisable to seek an assessment by a doctor or physiotherapist. 

  • Inability to weight bear on your knee or a feeling that it will give way when you stand
  • Significant knee swelling
  • Inability to fully extend (straighten) or flex (bend) your knee
  • Visible deformity of your leg or knee
  • Fever, redness, pain and swelling in the knee
How long a sports injury takes to recover depends on the type and severity of injury, your general health and fitness, and the types of sports you play. For the best outcome, it is important to follow the RICE principle (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) immediately after the injury, and then seek the advice of a doctor or physiotherapist for a full assessment and rehabilitation program.
Types of common knee injuries include joint or ligament sprains, muscle strains, bursitis, dislocations (e.g. of the knee cap, called the patella), fractures (broken bones), meniscus tears, and overuse injuries.

In Australia, a referral is not required to be able to see an allied health professional such as a physiotherapist, although it is often helpful for you to bring as much information about your health history as well as any specific medical or surgical details that relate to your reason for seeing a physiotherapist. There are a few exceptions to this, where you will need to obtain a referral from your GP prior to attending our clinic. This includes: 

  • Workers Compensation Claims 
  • CTP (Third Party) Road Accident Claims
  • Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Claims
  • Medicare Claims (e.g. Chronic Disease Management referral)
