Sports Injuries Experts in Melbourne
Sport, lifestyle and leisure activities are an important aspect of life that you need for good health and well-being. Keeping you in your sport / activity is our goal.
Identifying, treating, managing and then preventing sports injuries keeps you active for longer.
Identification: The first step is to diagnosis and understand your injury/condition and determine any contributing factors: biomechanical, equipment, training schedule, muscular tightness or joint tightness.
We can provide further referral for investigations as deemed appropriate. X-ray, Ultrasound and MRIs can be used to assist in an accurate diagnosis.
Treatment: A combination of well known physiotherapy skills and the latest up-to-date modalities are used to relieve symptoms and improve movement and function.
Bodyflow, as recommended by Cate Boyd on SEN and OneHD, is one example of these modalities. By using the Bodyflow recover faster technology, the Bodyflow machnine (pictured above right) helps to drain fluid from acute injuries and post op injuries. www.bodyflow.com.au
