AFL superstar or weekend warrior – it’s all the same to us. The Thrive Physio Plus team has extensive experience working with athletes of all sports and can diagnose, rehabilitate, and empower you to get back into action in the best time frame possible. More importantly, we recognise it’s not just good enough getting you back to sport, you need to stay healthy! We have the knowledge and experience to minimise the risk of re-injury through evidence based rehabilitation strategies.
Early treatment will involve protection of the injured area to promote healing and reduce inflammation. Techniques including joint mobilisation, soft tissue release and dry needling may also be utilised where appropriate. Our highly skilled Physiotherapists will also provide guidance on regaining flexibility, strength, endurance, proprioception, load capacity and tissue resiliency in the initial stages of your rehabilitation.
Once the initial injury is no longer acute, sports specific conditioning can begin to ensure that not just the injured area, but the whole body is ready to return to training and games. Our Physio’s are acutely aware of the signs that an athlete may be at risk of re-injury including fatigue, reduced muscle flexibility and strength. We will work closely with coaches and trainers to ensure that the appropriate program and advice is given at just the right time.
With the guidance of the experienced Thrive Physio Plus team, we will make sure you can run, cut, hop, jump, kick, throw, lift and do everything you require to get back to the sport or exercise you love.
