At Forefront Physiotherapy Geelong, our Geelong Sports Physiotherapists specialise in the treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and complaints sustained during sporting activities. Sports injuries are often more severe than every day injuries due to the greater stress put on the muscles, joints and bones. The most common injuries associated with sports include ligament sprains, strains, tears, joint injuries and over-use injuries.
Our Geelong Sports Physiotherapists will assess and treat the cause of your injury allowing you to build up the strength, mobility, balance and co-ordination required to return to your sport pain free and to help prevent further injury.
At Forefront Physiotherapy Geelong our Sports Physiotherapists have the skills, expert knowledge and experience to get you back on the field as soon as physically possible. We treat everyone from elite athletes to the weekend warrior.
We believe in a rigorous assessment of your injury, followed by a detailed treatment plan. If you don't know what the cause of the pain or problem is, how are you going to fix it? Once we have a firm diagnosis, the rehabilitation begins.
