Sports Physiotherapists

The Melbourne Sports Medicine has many titled Sports Physiotherapists and experienced clinical Physiotherapists who can assist in the diagnosis and management of all types of injuries. Physiotherapists are highly trained professionals who use a variety of techniques to assist your muscles and joints to work to their full potential.  Almost any condition that affects your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments or nerves can be helped by Physiotherapy.  Whether the result of a sporting injury, overuse or long term poor physical practices, physiotherapy can help to repair damage by speeding up the healing process and by reducing pain and stiffness.  Physiotherapists can also provide advice to prevent problems from recurring or even happening in the first place.  You certainly don't need to be an athlete to consult them - our Physiotherapists are determined to help you improve your performance no matter what your level of activity is!
