Sports Physiotherapy at Physio Fit Adelaide
At Physio Fit Adelaide, we have a long history of working with sports teams, clubs and organisations. We have worked with grass roots all the way to national and international level competition as physiotherapists.
Our primary goal of sports physiotherapy is to rehabilitate your current injury while preventing further injury down the track. We begin with a comprehensive rehabilitation plan that addresses all aspects of functional recovery, including balance, motor control, strength, and proprioception. Our aim is to equip athletes with the tools necessary to prevent future injury recurrence, as a previous injury is one of the biggest risk factors for further injuries.
Preventing Sports Injuries
At Physio Fit Adelaide, we place a strong emphasis on injury prevention in sports. We firmly believe that prevention is better than a cure, and we understand the need to avoid any time off from sport where possible.
To assess your injury risk and design a tailored injury prevention program, we utilise state-of-the-art testing equipment, such as the Force Frame and Nordbord assessment systems, as well as muscle strength dynamometers. This technology which is used in elite sports, enables us to identify areas that require improvement and develop a program aligned with your needs and goals. Additionally, we offer a range of protective and preventative aids, such as knee and ankle braces, to boost your confidence during the early stages of returning to sport.

Comprehensive Sports Injury Management
In addition to our physiotherapy services, our clinics have strong relationships with experienced orthopedic surgeons, sports doctors, as well as access to our in-house sports podiatrists, and remedial massage therapists. Whether you’re recovering from a muscle strain during sports or dealing with chronic low back pain during exercise, our sports physiotherapists are here to support you.
What to Expect From Sports Physiotherapy Management
An effective injury prevention program begins with a comprehensive sports and musculoskeletal screening. During this assessment, we evaluate your posture, movement patterns, muscle strength and endurance, sports-specific movements, and joint flexibility. The results of your screening guide our physiotherapists in identifying specific areas of your performance and movement that may require improvement or monitoring to prevent injury. This screening also establishes your baseline performance at the start of a season or pre-season, which is crucial information for your return to competition following an injury.
