Physio Place is the preferred sports physio team for The Bilambil Jets Rugby League, Currumbin Alleygators, Tweed Valley Kings Premier League Soccer and Kingscliff Elite Swimming Squad. Our sport physiotherapists have a wide variety of sports experience and are happy to treat all sports injuries from juniors through to elite level.
Correct management of sporting injuries is vital to ensure there is no re-occurrence or ongoing pain. Too often sport injuries that have been left untreated leave strength or flexibility deficits. This increases the risk of re-injury or new injuries due to movement dysfunction.
A thorough assessment to provide you with an exact diagnosis and prognosis of your injury will be provided. At times, this may mean referral to radiologists for further x-rays, CT-scans, or MRI investigations. In conjunction with an appointment or liaising with your doctor (G.P). We also work as part of a wider team including orthopaedic specialists, sports medicine physicians and sports podiatrists.
Treatment provided is completely hands-on with manual therapy including joint mobilisations, deep tissue massage, stretching, myofascial tissue release, deep dry needling (or intra-muscular stimulation technique). These techniques are evidence based and all physiotherapists remain up-to-date with ongoing professional development.
Home exercise, hydrotherapy and gym based exercise programming provide a seamless transition from acute injury to full return to sport. All staff are dual qualified exercise physiologists and physiotherapists and work can attend consultations offsite at various gymnasiums or pools.
