Football Injury Physiotherapy Melbourne
With Australian football being such a high impact contact sport, it’s extremely likely to end up causing you more than one injury over the years. But don’t let your injuries get in the way of your play – Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy can help get you back in the field in no time with football physio sessions.
How Can Physiotherapy Help You Perform Better In Football?
The immense physicality that’s involved in playing Australian football means that injuries to all parts of the body are common. In football soft tissue injuries are common with hamstring strains still making up the vast majority of these soft tissue injuries. Then there are joint injuries from both a contact and non-contact perspective such as ACL injury in the knee, not to mention shoulder, hip and groin injuries. We are pleased to say that our sports physiotherapists have seen all kinds of different footballing injuries from years of working in the sport and industry, know how to ensure you recover in the shortest period of time and be sure to be able to withstand the rigours of the game when returning. Whatever football related injury you might present with our team of highly credentialed physios will complete a thorough assessment of your injury and provide you with the right treatment to get you back to normal and playing again.
A good sports physiotherapist will be able to advise you when you can get back to training and how you can maintain a baseline level of fitness whilst respecting the physiological healing process of your injury. During our sessions of physio for football players we commonly focus on restoring muscle strength, capacity from an endurance and power perspective and joint range so your body can cope with the physical demands of the sport. Continuing physiotherapy especially after major injury even after you have returned to sport, especially following ACL injury is highly recommended. This is so our team can perform rigorous testing that can indicate reinjury possibility.
When To Specifically Seek For A Football Physio Specialist
Try and see a football physiotherapist as soon as the aches and pains arise to ensure a fast recovery time. Rest assured our team never wants to see you for longer than what is required. Recovery with physiotherapy can take from just weeks to months depending on how early you’re treated. The longer you leave it, or try and train through it, the longer you could be dealing with the symptoms or potentially dealing with additional complications. As one of the leading sports physiotherapy clinic in Melbourne consisting of specialist physiotherapists, we know how to create a high-quality rehabilitation to get you back on the field when you’re fully healed, not just pain-free. We measure everything in regards to your treatment process rather than using pain as a guide.
Physiotherapy isn’t just for injuries, however. Using a holistic approach means that we can work with you to prevent injuries from arising. Of course, we won’t be able to prevent impact injuries, but building your muscle strength makes you less likely to come across sprains, ligament damage, and muscle tear from overuse and muscle fatigue. Your physiotherapist can work with you to create a personalised training programme with stretches, therapy, and exercises to keep your body in top condition.
