Individuals who experience musculoskeletal injuries, whether incurred in an athletic setting, an accident or from repetitive daily activities can get relief through Sydney sports & orthopaedic physiotherapy. Working in conjunction with orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists provide effective management of pain following an injury, rehabilitation to help patients return to normal function, plus tips on injury prevention to avoid further incidents.
Physiotherapy helps patients by rehabilitating and improving movement problems through natural methods that include targeted exercises, motivation, adapted equipment and education. Typical conditions treated include problems involving the neck and lower back, pinched nerves and sciatica. Areas of the body commonly involved in sports injuries are shoulders, knees, ankles and feet.
All treatment programs begin with a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s injury while also taking into account current ability and lifestyle, level of sporting ability, if applicable and future goals.
