Our sports physiotherapists have the training and experience necessary to help you recover and exceed your previous performance levels. We address many sports injuries, including but not limited to:
When you suffer pain, overuse, or traumatic sports injuries, you want to recover as quickly as possible and return to the sport you love. We’ll personalise your sports injury physiotherapy sessions using evidence-backed assessment techniques and treatments to help you meet and aim to surpass your pre-injury performance.
How We Work
Our physiotherapy services help athletes rehabilitate from pain and recover from sports injuries. We will work with you beyond just recovery and rehabilitation using our three core pillars:
REHAB. STRENGTH. PERFORMANCE.
Our initial focus will be your REHAB and recovery, starting with a thorough assessment and diagnosis. From there, we’ll help you understand your diagnosis, the short and long-term phases of your rehabilitation, and we’ll connect your rehabilitation to your personal goals. Your short-term treatment plan will include proper nutrition, strength and conditioning, and manual physiotherapy.
To get the best outcomes for you, we’ll identify all the areas that need improvement. By doing this, we’ll be working on your body as a whole. Building your body's strength can optimise the systems required to promote muscle growth, improve joint stability, and enhance recovery so you can work smarter, not harder.
Together, we’ll define what performance means to you and we’ll work with you to to the very end to ensure you return to the activity or sport you love. We don’t stop there though; we’ll aim to help you exceed your expectations. We’re here to support your journey and make sure you’ve rehabilitated and return as a better and more robust athlete.
At RSP Sports Physiotherapy, we don’t stop at treating symptoms. We’re not satisfied until you can not only get back in the game but play harder than ever before.
