PHYSIOTHERAPY TREATMENTS

Tailored Physiotherapy to assist your healing.





Sports Physiotherapy 


Get back in the game…faster

Sports physiotherapy focuses on exercises, manual therapy, and modalities to return you back to your pre-injury level of activity. Treatment plans often utilize strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular function to regain control over your injury.  Sports Physiotherapists play an important role in helping athletes of all ages and all levels of ability to enhance their performance and return to play. 

We have a gym area in the clinic  with everything we need to assess your condition, rehabilitate your injury, and return you to your sport or activity…faster!!

 

Whether you are recovering from sprains/strains or surgery, sports rehabilitation will optimize your return to your pre-injury function with a specific graduated exercise program tailored to you and your sport. Exercises will focus on being sport-specific and we will perform testing to know when it is safe for you to return to sport.

 

Sprains and strains and repetitive use tendonitis are common sports injuries. Not only will we focus on healing your injury, but we will look at your movement patterns and muscle imbalances to correct any underlying reason for your injury in the first place. 

 

With a comprehensive assessment, physiotherapists are experts in identifying for example, if it’s a rotator cuff muscle involved in your shoulder pain, which ligament is at fault with your ankle sprain, if its disc or muscle involved with your back pain, or if it could be your ACL with your knee pain. We can identify what is at fault and recommend if further imaging is required or not. 


Physiotherapists are experts in strength testing and movement patterns. For example, your hip strength could be at fault for knee or ankle pain, or a weak rotator cuff or scapular muscle could be at fault for shoulder pain while throwing. 

 

Have a biomechanical analysis of your walking, running, jumping throwing pattern to identify any faulty patterns or muscle weaknesses. Did you know optimizing your ROM in specific directions or targeting specific muscles can help your performance regardless of pain

I always know I'll leave the clinic better off than before I walked in.

Following a knee injury, I was desperately looking for somewhere to go for an assessment and for physiotherapy. Everywhere else in town would have had me waiting for over a week for support, but I was able to get into the Adelaide Clinic to meet with Carly the next day using their easy online booking! Carly is a phenomenal physiotherapist and helped me build strength in my knee through simple exercises, and now I am back to 100% and back to my regular exercise routine! Thank Adelaide clinic!

My son and I have been going to Dr. J for a couple of weeks now. Before I saw her I could barely put pants on as I had little mobility in my leg. Now I have no issues and my pain has decreased significantly.

My kiddo has been sleeping better since his adjustments. I am sooo incredibly thankful for her!

Seeing Carly for pelvic floor physiotherapy twice in preparation before labour was extremely helpful for me. She explains the anatomy of the female reproductive system in an easy-to-understand way, which helps make the home care exercises she suggests very accessible. I felt much more confident for labour and delivery because of Carly. My whole experience at the clinic felt supportive, thorough, and very safe. I would recommend Carly to anyone looking for support while trying to conceive, during pregnancy and post-partum, I just couldn’t imagine doing it without her!
