SPORTS INJURIES:

We will assist to treat and rehabilitate any injuries or complaints sustained during sporting activities. Whether you have pulled up sore from a game over the weekend, have an ongoing issue or have suffered a serious injury, the team at Redfern Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine are here to help! The sports injuries that our physiotherapists regularly deal with in our clinic include:

  • Ankle sprains & knee injuries
  • Knee and shoulder reconstructions
  • Hip and low back pain
  • Shoulder pain including rotator cuff and bursitis
  • Overuse injuries including tendinitis/tendinopathy
  • Contusions and corks
  • Fracture management

Early and accurate diagnosis is essential in these cases to direct best practice management. Where necessary our therapists will refer you on to the appropriate practitioners for further examination or investigations such as MRI scan, X-Ray, Ultrasound, etc.

The aim of Sports Physiotherapy is to evaluate, treat, and rehabilitate injuries related to sport or physical activity. The injury can be new, old, recurring or post-surgical. The road to recovery involves evaluation and treatment to assist healing of the injury, followed by retraining neuromuscular control, then functional strengthening to return to sport or physical activity whilst avoiding any re-occurrence.

Our experienced team of physiotherapists have the knowledge and tools at their disposal to deal with all sporting injuries. We draw from years of experience working at the elite level with professional athletes and sporting organisations, effectively rehabilitating clients throughout Sydney. Our staff are all members of Sports Physiotherapy Australia (SPA) meaning they have access to the most recent advances in sports physiotherapy management, including the latest evidence-based skilled assessments, diagnosis and management techniques.

Our physiotherapists will develop a detailed, sports-specific, return to play program to restore full mobility, control and strength to the injured limb as well as the sport-specific fitness and skills required to allow a smooth return to your sporting activities. Our specialised services can cater to athletes of all ages engaged in sports at any level of competition.
