What is sports physio?
Sports physio involves the assessment and treatment of sporting injuries—as part of rehabilitation or to prevent future injury. Part of the process is recognising the unique athletic goals of each individual, and providing the resources you require to perform at your peak—regardless of your sporting experience.
You don’t have to be a professional athlete to receive superior treatment; we cater for sports men and women engaged in sports at any level.
Our approach to sports physio
At Flow Physio, we’re passionate about pain management and proactive prevention. Regardless of whether you’re an elite athlete, part of a community team, or anything in-between, we’re motivated to help you achieve your fitness objectives.
Sports physio is an effective way to sustain your active lifestyle, while treating any imbalances or areas of injury. When sports physio is employed as part of a holistic treatment approach, it can contribute to:
- Musculoskeletal strength and wellbeing.
- Enhanced rehabilitation response throughout injury.
- Improved mobility, flexibility and joint flexion.
- Prevention of future pain in areas predisposed to injury.
- Relaxation and stress relief.
Our team can prepare programs tailored to the requirements of a range of sports. We believe this need to be specific to your athletic pursuit, and in line with your individual sporting goals.
Common conditions and sports physio
Injuries in sport are often the result of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints being pushed to their limits. Injuries of this kind require expert treatment and rehabilitation for optimal recovery. Speed of recovery is often a deciding factor for many athletes, as it impacts their overall schedules and upcoming activity.
Sports physio is an effective treatment for a range of common sporting injuries and pain points. It is suitable when addressing a wide range of conditions that cause pain or discomfort. Including:
- Muscular strains (calf, hamstring and others)
- Shoulder instability
- Overuse injuries
- Hip and knee injuries
- Tendon injuries
- Back pain
- Dislocations and fractures
- Joint or ligament strains
At Flow Physio, our team will work through your presentation, associated activity levels, work status and sporting goals to ensure all relevant areas are targeted.
