Suffering from Sports Injuries?

It’s the nature of the beast that if you play sport at any level at some point you’re going to get injured. At Arana Hills physiotherapy you get to deal with physiotherapists who know what it takes to get back after injury and to perform even better.

Our physiotherapists have extensive backgrounds in sports rehabilitation and performance related programming. They are also quite a competitive bunch that participate in a wide variety of sports so they know how important it is to get you healthy again.

Sports injuries need to be treated from initial in the early acute stage right through to the return to play phase to ensure optimal recovery and reduce risk of re-injury.

From ACL reconstructions, ankle injuries, shoulder problems, or whatever you injured on the field we have the knowledge and experience to put a plan in place to get you back to performing at your best.

Three Stages of Treatment

Pain is often the last symptom to arrive and the first to go. This often tricks the owner of an injury (you) into stopping treatment before the underlying causes have either completely resolved or you are in control of them. Without getting to this point there is a risk of re-injury.
