Sports Injury Treatment
Sports injuries can happen to anyone and if not properly treated, can have a debilitating impact on your life. They may occur as a result of a sudden impact or strain, or they may develop over time due to factors such as poor technique and structural abnormalities. In either case, prompt and appropriate treatment is important.
Our chiropractors, podiatrists and remedial massage therapist all deal with various types of sports injuries. The nature of the injury will indicate which health professional is best suited to deal with your complaint.
Our musculoskeletal professionals deal in the treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of various sports injuries, including:
- Joint sprains
- Muscle strains
- Bursits and bursal irritation
- Shin splints
- Rotator cuff tears
- Myofascial pain
Our chiropractors and podiatrists use best practice testing methods to diagnose the problem and tailor the treatment / rehabilitation program specifically to you. We can provide technique assessment and/or correction to minimise the chance of injury, in conjunction with rehabilitation programs to correct any structural abnormalities. Of course, if your injury falls outside the scope of our expertise (e.g. broken bones, dislocations etc), we will not hesitate to refer you to the most appropriate health professional for your specific needs.
Our patients range from professional and world-class athletes, to the elderly and everyone in between, so whether you are going to the gym for the first time or an elite athlete – our practitioners would love to help you.
