Sports Rehabilitation

Physiotherapists play a large role in helping athletes manage their sports-related injuries and getting them back to performing at their full potential. We here at Glenroy Physiotherapy Centre are committed to providing evidence-based rehabilitation programs for individuals fighting an ongoing sporting injury, whether it’s acute or chronic.

Common injuries that physiotherapists treat include:

  • Muscle strains and tears
  • Ligament injuries
  • Acute traumas (including fractures)
  • Bony oedemas
  • Knee, hip or ankle injury
  • Shoulder injuries

Plus a variety of other injuries can cause ongoing inflammation and pain.

Physiotherapy treatment may increase muscle strength and blood circulation, decrease oedema and swelling, and improve cardiorespiratory health to bulletproof your body from further or re-occurring injuries. Following a thorough assessment, our clinicians will utilise a variety of manual ‘hands-on’ and exercise therapy to get you feeling better and return you to the sport you love as quickly and safely as possible.

Recovering from an injury can be a difficult time, and often impacts a person’s mental and emotional wellbeing. Sustaining an injury or persistent pain can be a daunting experiencing and can cause an emotional toll on our well-being when we are no longer able to participate in our routine exercise. Our clinicians can help support you while recovering from an injury and guide you through mental preparation to assist with readiness for returning to sport and training.

Whether you’re a weekend warrior, looking at competing professionally, or simply wanting to return to the gym to feel fitter and stronger, we can tailor an exercise program to maximise your athletic performance. Through individualised goals, we’ll help get your rehab back on track and support you as an athlete going forward.
