Sports Injury Management

Recovery, rehabilitation and prevention 

Injury from exercise

Exercise has huge benefits for physical and mental health. We strongly encourage you to stay active and keep participating whether you’re an avid walker, a recreational ‘weekend warrior’ athlete, or an elite sports professional.

Unfortunately, an increase in physical activity in training, contact or non-contact sports brings risk of injury. Even non-sporting activities like gardening, cleaning the house or walking can lead to injury.

However you’ve hurt yourself, therapists at Campbelltown Physiotherapy promptly diagnose the injury, identify the risk factors that caused the injury and rehabilitate for your return to sport or activity in a safe and timely manner.

 

Thorough assessment and diagnosis

Our physiotherapists start by making a thorough assessment and diagnosis of your sport injury. Direct contact, falls, muscle weakness and fatigue, poor technique or overtraining are common causes of injury. We frequently diagnose:

  • Muscle tears and strains
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Ligament and tendon injuries

With risk factors identified and a diagnosis in place, we devise a plan for your recovery and prevention of injury recurrence. Whether the injury is acute or a chronic condition, we give a time frame for your return to sport or activity.

 

 

Sports injury treatment

Treatment plans are tailored to each patient, taking into account any performance needs, lifestyle challenges or underlying health issues. We aim for a safe and timely return to sport with programs that are as effective as they are achievable on a day-to-day basis.
