Sports Podiatry - Injury Treatment & Rehabilitation
Our customised sports injury treatment and rehabilitation allows you to return to peak performance and reach your goals
Whether you’re suffering from joint sprains, muscle strains, running injuries or overuse injuries such as achilles tendonitis, sporting injuries usually require more care, a highly structured and sports-specific approach with fundamental components that need to be included in all successful rehabilitation programs, which is where sports podiatry can help.
Correct and specific rehabilitation is important if you have an injury that limits your involvement in regular activity and exercise, so you can avoid injury recurrence and have an optimal recovery.
A personalised management plan is essential for a safe and speedy recovery.
Our sports podiatry injury treatment and rehabilitation programs are specifically tailored to the diagnosis of your injuries, musculoskeletal dysfunctions and management of your injuries both short term and long term.
How does Sports Injury Rehabilitation Work?
Our sports injury treatment and rehabilitation programs are dynamic and structured and aim to help reduce pain, restore function and performance level, and minimise the risk of re-injury so you can return to peak performance and doing what you love to do in a safe and timely manner.
We create customised treatment & rehabilitation plans that start of with strengthening and flexibility exercises to promote recovery and then gradually move on to include more progressive exercises that are sport-specific, to help you return to a fully functional state safely.
Our qualified practitioners are strong believers in education so part of your treatment plan includes education on what to do or not do in future to prevent such injuries.
What Conditions Benefit from Sports Podiatry Rehabilitation?
Watch Shockwave Therapy In Action
Biomechanics abnormalities is a major contributing factor in the development of pain and injury in the feet, ankles, knees and legs. A biomechanical analysis aims to identify the injury and determine if current activities or movements are contributing to the problem. A management plan is then formulated to reduce damage caused by stresses and loads, providing an opportunity for the feet and legs to heal and strengthen.

A Quick Tip For “Runners Knee” – Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome
Patellofemoral pain syndrome is a common cause of anterior knee pain that often occurs while performing sports that involve a lot of running or jumping activities. However, it can also occur when simply walking up/down stairs or squatting (activities that result in increased loads going through the knee).
For an athlete or active person, any injury comes as a major blow to the quality of life, necessitating a rapid, effective rehab program.
Rehabilitation is a critical aspect of ensuring restoration of your muscle and joint function and minimising re-injury.
Resuming normal activities after a sporting injury may take some time depending on the type of injury, the treatment/rehabilitation program you’re on, and how closely you follow the plan.
Returning to normal activities without proper rehabilitation can result in re-injury and in some cases, new injuries as well.
Once again, treatment depends on the type of injury. The best option to understand the specifics around your injury management is to book a consultation with our qualified practitioners who can assess and diagnose the issue before advising what type of treatment you require and for how long.
