At West Active our sports physiotherapists are at the forefront of the latest ‘evidence-based practice’. We have sports physios that hold a Masters degree in sports physiotherapy and have many years of practical skills, either pitch side or with the squad.
Sports Injuries can be new and acute, or chronic and ongoing. Niggles, such as tennis elbow or hamstring strains that simply refuse to go away. The key is to really get to the root of the problem. And understand the reason why. Too often, treatment is applied to the symptoms, not the cause.
Our sports physiotherapists take the time to conduct a thorough subjective and physical examination, screening for any faulty biomechanics, and diagnosis of the pathological structure.
Manual therapy techniques are used to aid recovery and prevent further damage. We also devise rehabilitation programs to return you to your full sporting peak, and to fully understand and prevent any recurrence of re- injury.
In some cases with sporting injuries, scans need to be requested to provide a clearer clinical picture (ie. X-ray, CT scans, MRI, ultrasound). Being inside Wyndham Private Medical Centre, we can save you the hassle of traveling, and will try to organize an appointment straight away.
West Active sports physios work with some of Melbourne’s leading sports orthopaedic surgeons and Sports Physicians. We believe in delivering the finest quality of care and service to all patients.
