Sporting injuries such as ligament sprains and muscle strains require accurate diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. It doesn’t matter if you are an elite athlete or a “weekend warrior” …IT happens.
Performance Medicine’s Melbourne sports physios can diagnose, treat and rehabilitate your acute and chronic sporting injuries.
Treatment techniques that may be used include:
- Spinal joint mobilisation / manipulation
- Peripheral joint mobilisation
- Myofascial or soft tissue release
- Neurodynamic mobilisation
- Dry needling
Performance Medicine principles of proactive management always apply so that you can be back on track as safely and as quickly as possible.
Occasionally, further investigation may be required and your sports physiotherapists may refer you for an X-ray, ultrasound or MRI. Performance Medicine has excellent affiliations with Sports Physicians and Orthopaedic Specialists and may refer you if you require further management.
