What is Sports Physiotherapy?

Sports Physiotherapists are health professionals concerned with the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of spinal and musculoskeletal disorders in athletes. They utilise their knowledge of normal movement and the function of bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments to determine if they are performing effectively and normally, assisting the athlete toward optimum performance. The team at Physioworks Health Group Berwick are highly qualified, experienced Sports Physiotherapists.

How will Sports Physiotherapy assist me?

A key to successful recovery is the immediate treatment, correct diagnosis & management of sport injury.

Sports physiotherapy aims to restore normal and pain free function with the use of manual physical treatments, including joint mobilisation, massage, electrotherapy, joint manipulation and exercises complemented by advice and education.

Our programs at Physioworks Berwick assist with preparation and injury prevention to help athletes perform at their chosen sport, and to triage injury supporting recovery.

Manipulative Physiotherapy:

Manipulative physiotherapy is the term used for special handling techniques to promote healing of soft tissue. These techniques may include myofascial release, craniosacral techniques, joint mobilisation and massage therapy to name a few.

Dry Needling:

Involves needling to altered or dysfunctional tissues in order to improve or restore function. This may include needling of myofascial trigger points, periosteum, or other soft tissue. It can be used as an adjunct to your normal physiotherapy treatment.

Hydrotherapy:

Hydrotherapy can offer a perfect adjunct to physiotherapy, to assist strengthening, mobilisation and movement. It involves gentle exercises in warm water with programs individually tailored to each person’s particular needs, and can be done on-site in the pools at P3 Sports and Recovery.
