Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy delivers extended opening hours for our city-based clients, many being young professionals with active work and sport lifestyles.
Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy understands the need to offer physiotherapy services outside of the general 9-to-5 when operating from the Melbourne city centre. Our opening hours are from 7:30am until after 6.00pm to ensure city professionals can schedule a sports physio session, sports training session or physiotherapy treatment around their busy day.
Many younger professionals run a frantic work and sport schedule and this group are often the young accountants and lawyers. They are typically working at their office for extensive hours so the early and late opening times of Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy suit them very well.
The lunchtime hours are also especially popular with Melbourne professionals. Our aim is to provide a physiotherapy environment where the active people who work in the Melbourne CBD can come and receive a sports physio treatment without interruption to their busy schedule.
Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy has treated the working people of Melbourne since 1947. Our care extends from Physiotherapy through to expert sports physio and core strength training.
Many of our valued clients are based in the Melbourne CBD for work, though live in the suburbs. Rather than travelling back to their home town for a sports physio treatment after a day of work in Melbourne City, we find our clients prefer to receive their sports physiotherapy either before or after the working day and in close proximity to their office.
Chris Hibbert, Nick Cross, Todd Anderson and Adrianna Cann at Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy are very happy to extend trading hours to suit the busy lifestyles of our clients.
Sports Physiotherapy plays a big role in the Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy ethos through balancing a workout regime to ensure core body strength is improved.
Physiotherapists will assess the source of an injury as a part of the treatment. In many cases, the injury is sustained through weekend sporting activities and will re-occur if not addressed. Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy believes core strength in problematic areas of the body is the key to ensuring injuries and ongoing sports physio be kept at a minimum.
Beyond assessment and initial sports physio diagnosis, clients requiring a sports physio session for injuries are recommended to work on their core areas with specific physiotherapy exercises. The exercises can be incorporated into a standard workout regime, bringing the problematic areas into balance and negating breakdowns and extended sports physiotherapy treatment.
Corporate and community sporting events are a part of the corporate culture in Melbourne.
Sports injuries related to this intense workout environment often require remedial sports physio treatment.
As Corporate Melbourne has a strong sporting and community ethic, professionals compete in all types of marathon, athletics and running sports to help support the needs of others. Melbourne CBD Physio has a close relationship with many active corporate people who require a sports physio session in Melbourne and sees a direct relationship between community sporting activities and injury.
Pre-emptive sports physio care has shown to benefit the body`s ability to sustain stress, build core strength thus preventing a physical break down during sporting activities.
The team of Sports Physiotherapists at Melbourne CBD Physio offer services for the whole family.
The Melbourne CBD Physio team of sports physiotherapists treat patients not only for sporting injuries, but practice physiotherapy for the whole family. Children are often susceptible to the common stresses and pain entering the central nervous system due to the push and pull of an active life.
Young people are very active and sport plays a large role in every Victorian`s education. Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy has a rich history in improving the health and well-being of our clients. This extends to the whole family where the physio treatment and core strength training of our long-standing client`s children is becoming a large part of our practice.
Many of the younger people make regular physiotherapy appointments at the start of each sporting season to ensure their systems are in good order for the sporting activity ahead. The physiotherapy sessions are generally repeated in the middle sector of a season when the body has sustained some stress from the ongoing activities.
An ongoing physiotherapy regime will identify high stress areas of the body and exercises can be utilized to negate injury.
Sports Physio - Sports physiotherapy at Melbourne CBD Physio is centered on a twenty year wealth of experience in the active field.
The team at Melbourne CBD Physio collectively have many decades of experience in the area of sports physio. Chris was the head sports physio at the Collingwood Football Club for an extended period where his physiotherapy experience was utilized day to day. The experience and techniques garnered are used today to treat active physiotherapy and sporting physio needs.
Chris relies on the physiotherapy methods developed through his role within elite sports. His approach is as follows: "With many sports physio cases you go back to basics, and the big question asked is why are you getting injured? Are there other problems in play, look above and below the joint that they are injured or above and below the muscle and then you can implement what you want to do."
Technology now plays a huge role in sports physio. Diagnosis can be swift using the new technologies with the aim of developing physiotherapy exercises in conjunction with treatment. This active approach to sports physio reduces the frequency of sports related breakdowns. Contact Melbourne CBD Physio for further information.
Golfers Under Repair - Golf Physiotherapy is a field of treatment available from Melbourne CBD Physio
Chris Hibbert and Dean Little are certified Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) practitioners. Both men share a keen interest in the rehabilitation of golfers suffering injury. Chris is an active golfer and understands that a golfer needs to be very flexible in the thoracic spine. Without this flexibility, other areas of the body are used to balance the shot which can lead to injury and the need for physiotherapy.
Golfers Under Repair sessions are available from the Melbourne Clinic or through Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

The Alter-G Anti Gravity Treadmill provides a total rehab solution for those enduring pain from running injury.
Mr Todd Anderson - sports physiotherapist specialising in lower limb, ACL, hip, knee, foot and ankle injury incurred through running, talks about Melbourne CBD Physio's Alter-G Anti Gravity Treadmill
For runners, the inability to run regularly can cause much anxiety and sometimes depression. At our Melbourne CBD clinic we will get you back on the track through our rehab and sports physio programs using our Alter-G anti-gravity training treadmill.
The Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill has been designed to reduce stress on the lower body making it perfect for sports physiotherapy, rehabilitation and treatments required for full recovery from surgery to the knees or ankle. Great for Seniors as the Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill makes it impossible to fall. Athletes undergoing rehabilitation can also benefit as the load can be gradually increased making it perfect for endurance training.
In sports physiotherapy, the Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill has proved itself invaluable. While supporting the lower portions of the body it allows for natural movement of the limbs and stresses can be increased to normal levels gradually over time allowing for full recovery. The Alter-G anti gravity treadmill utilises a specially design air pressure system to offset the downward pressure effects of gravity on the body.
At Melbourne CBD Physio we conduct sport physiotherapy sessions for patients whose bone stress, tendon pain, osteoarthritis, and post-surgical rehabilitation programs can benefit from supported sessions on the Alter-G anti gravity treadmill.
