Sports Physio Services

How are Sports Physiotherapists Different?

Sports physios have had extensive extra training in the area of muscle and joint injury assessment and management, with a focus on those occurring while playing sport or during physical activity. Here at ProSport Physio, we are qualified sports physiotherapists who have spent many years working with sporting teams and individual athletes, from professional to weekend warriors! During this time, we have been responsible for accurately diagnosing and managing all types of injuries. We work closely with our patients to develop highly specific return to play programs, guiding them through each step.
